B&N’s Top 25 Science Fiction/Fantasy Books of the Year

Here’s another ‘Tis the Season retailing “best of” list for your viewing (and possibly gift-giving) pleasure, and this one is right up our alley:  25 of the best science fiction and fantasy books of 2015 from our friends at Barnes and Noble.  On their blog, they said, “we can’t remember the last 12-month period that gave us such a strong run of new science fiction and fantasy books, spanning every subgenre on the shelves.”
