The Reading List!

Groovy. I just learned (thanks to Larry, my un-paid publicist), that Acacia: The War with the Mein made the American Library Association's "Reading List". Looks like they have a specific council of librarians that puts together a list of favorites by genre. Here's how they describe themselves: The Reading List Council seeks to highlight outstanding genre fiction that merits special attention by general adult readers and the librarians who work with them. Nice.

Pat Rothfuss tops the list. Congrats, Pat. (Again...) The others in the fantasy section are as follows. And very good company they all are...

Bull, Emma. Territory. Tor, 2007.
Butcher, Jim. White Night. ROC/Penguin, 2007.
Carey, Jacqueline. Kushiel's Justice. Warner, 2007.
Carey, Mike. The Devil You Know. Warner, 2007.
Durham, David. Acacia. Doubleday, 2007.
Ferrari, Mark. Book of Joby. Tor, 2007.
Fforde, Jasper. First Among Sequels. Viking, 2007.
Kay, Guy Gavriel. Ysabel. ROC/Penguin, 2007.
Kiernan, Caitlin. Daughter of Hounds. Roc, 2007.
Lynch, Scott. Red Seas Under Red Skies. Bantam Spectra, 2007.
Moers, Walter. City of Dreaming Books. Overlook, 2007.
Monette, Sarah and Elizabeth Bear. A Companion to Wolves. Tor, 2007.
