The 2012 World Fantasy Convention is being held November 1-4 in Toronto, where the winners of the World Fantasy Awards will be announced. The nominees for the novel category are listed below.
I haven’t read any of these yet, but I have started the “Song of Fire and Ice” series. I’m halfway through “A Game of Thrones.” I’m looking forward to reading “A Dance with Dragons,” but from the size of the previous books in the series, it may take me a while.
Also, at the convention, World Fantasy Lifetime Achievements Awards will be given to Alan Garner and George R.R. Martin.
Has anyone else read any of these books? What are your thoughts on them?
• ”Those Across the River,” Christopher Buehlman (Ace)
