Exciting, but I haven't read any of these, with the kind of exception of the Terry Pratchett novel I hated that comes after Going Postal which is a finalist for best novel. Ugh. I really need to streamline my criticism of that book- it was so bad in so many ways that I couldn't articulate it well. I'll try to adequately poison my pen for a reduxed review in the future.
Any suggestions from the list (except seeing "serenity." I saw it, and I have nothing more to say about it.)?
