Fall 2012 Battle of the Books Winner
I forgot to mention here that last week, over at the Fantastic Reviews Blog, I announced the winner of the belated Fall 2012 Battle of the Books: The Drowned Cities by Paolo Bacigalupi. (Go here for the full bracket of the Fall 2012 Battle of the Books.)
Congratulations to Paolo Bacigalupi, who joins Elizabeth Bear, James Renner and Ian Tregillis as FR Battle of the Books champions. The Drowned Cities is YA science fiction that has plenty to offer for adult readers as well.
With the Fall 2012 bracket decided, I next turn my attention to Battle of the Books #5. Here is the bracket for that Battle. I will try to continue to post a decision every other day, as we continue to work through our backlog.
