This weeks New York Times Science Fiction & Fantasy Best Sellers List

By / December 19, 2008 / no comments

I thought I’d take a look at all the Science Fiction and fantasy books on the New York Times Best seller list for this week. I’m a big fan of giving books for Christmas presents. It’s ridiculously easy to find someone a great book as a Christmas present.

Here is the list:

Ranking at #6, Just After Sunset, by Stephen King. This is a compilation of short stories blending fantasy and psychological realism.

Sitting in at #8, The Host, by Stephenie Meyer. According to the publisher: “Aliens have taken

control of the minds and bodies of most humans, but one woman won’t
surrender.” Go here for more info. This is a great book by the way. I’m going to do a review on it soon.

#10 is Dean Koontz’s Your Heart Belongs to Me. A man is

stalked by a woman who resembles the donor of the heart he received in a
transplant operation. For more info, check out the book on Amazon .

#21 is Jim Butcher’s Princep’s Fury. This is book 5 in his Codex Alera series. If you like action packed fantasy set in an alternative Roman world where magic works, you should check out this series. Butcher has come a long way with this series and I eagerly look forward to each new release. His Harry Dresden noir/detective fantasy books also a fantastic read.

And finally at #26 we have Orson Scott Card’s Ender in Exile. I haven’t read this one, but Card’s Ender’s Game is one of the pinnacles of Science Fiction. If you are a fan of the ender series (and what true science fiction bluff isn’t?), you should read Ender’s Game.

Well, there you go; all the fantasy and science fiction books on the current New York Times Bestseller list. It’s great to see that Science Fiction and Fantasy books are making a strong presence on the list! Now, back to Christmas shopping…
