Robert Thompson, better known as the Fantasy Book Critic, has turned his eyes to the best fantasy and scifi novels of 2008, along with some games and comics too.
The Kingdom Beyond the Waves was his best fantasy novel, with The Host by Stephenie Meyer heading up the SF section, although he admits this is more of a romance play (but nothing wrong in that).
Looks like there's a few more books from his list I'll have to add to my reading list now, groan. The Umbrella Academy looks very interesting.
