Best Books Of 2017

For the last two years I’ve kept a log of all the good books I read, regardless of when they were originally published. You can read my 2015 list by clicking here, and 2016’s by clicking here.

And since I’m nothing if not predictable, I decided to repeat this process for 2017.

So, here’s a look at the best novels, short story collections, and other books I read in 2017.


Exclusive Interview: Transformation Author James Gunn


How’s this for credentials: sci-fi writer James Gunn was inducted into the Science Fiction And Fantasy Hall Of Fame in 2015, made a Grand Master by The Science Fiction And Fantasy Writers Of America in 2007, and won the Hugo Award for Best Non-Fiction Book for his 1982 biography Isaac Asimov: The Foundations Of Science Fiction. With his new novel, Transformation, just released in hardcover and digital — thus concluding the saga he started with 2013’s Transcendental and continued with 2016’s Transgalactic — I spoke to this iconic science fiction writer about how this trilogy came together, how it relates to his impressive body of work, and that other James Gunn running around these days.
