      Here are some of my top SFF books of the year (though I won't necessarily recommend them all for Mythsoc -- I'm just posting them here based on how much I enjoyed them and would recommend them to others, not necessarily for their mythopoeic qualities).

      * Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone
      * Libriomancer by Jim Himes
      * Shape of Desire (2011) and Still Life with Shape-shifter (2012) by Sharon Shinn
      * At the Mouth of the River of Bees by Kij Johnson

      I am almost certainly going to nominate the Gladstone and the Johnson. The Johnson and the Shinn both also made PW's best SFF books of 2012 lists, so I'm not alone in thinking they're quite good! :)

      I am trying to get an early start on reading for the Mythopoeic Awards.
      Also, I have been put on a panel at Philcon about the best science fiction
      and fantasy of 2012. So, I'm doing a quick poll -- what do folks think is
      the best that's been published this year? And what are folks likely to
      nominate for the awards?

      -Lisa Padol, hoping we can actual make our way to Philcon without a hitch
