(Cribbed two from @john_chu)
I'm always years behind, but these are some of the works I enjoyed that came out in 2017:
Game: Night in the Woods
Novel: Amatka, Karen Tidbeck
Graphic Novel: Monstress vol. 2, Marjorie Liu
"Clearly Lettered in a Mostly Steady Hand," Fran Wilde
"Fandom for Robots," Vina Jie-Min Prasad
"Carnival Nine," Caroline Yoachim
"The Last Meal He Ate Before She Killed Him," Malcom Devlin, You Will Grow Into Them
"Well, I was out running around the old oxbow, and I heard something, but I couldn't see clearly. It was too dark, and my sight's pretty watery. Could have been one fishy character or two, and I'm not sure of the color of their shirts, red or blue..."
What he had here, the forestry officer realized, feeling an increasing sense of despair, was a babbling brook.
"Dam it," the officer said. "Shut UP. I was just fishing for information!"
Published four short stories this year. A fifth is hiding somewhere in Rocketwerkz' game, Living Dark.
1. "The Wretched and the Beautiful," Terraform (Feb)
2. "The White-Throated Transmigrant," Tor.com (June)
3. "The View From the Top of the Stair," Hazlitt (Sep)
4. "A Quiet Night in the Library," Hellboy: An Assortment of Horrors, (Aug) (not awards-eligible, but all kinds of fun)
A peaceful end of the year to you all.
