+ The CODEX ALERA made the Top 100 list in NPR's search for the Best 10 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Novels! (The Dresden Files do not seem to have been eligible, as NPR appears to be lumping Urban Fantasy in with Paranormal Romance, which will get its own competition.) There are a lot of fantastic books and series nominated, and if you feel Alera deserves to be in your Top 10, we'd love to have your vote! Voting ends August 11th!
