The Year's Best Science Fiction: Thirty-Third Annual Collection


CultureLab: Win the best science books of the year

The best books of the year, as chosen by The Wall Street Journal from more than 1,000 books reviewed, alongside a master list of the most-cited books on the best-of lists released so far this season.

In October, we collect all our favorites, look at upcoming 2015 titles, and cast our ballots for the Best Books of the Year. The titles that made our lists are the keepers, the ones we couldn't forget. Many of our editorial picks for the best books are also customer favorites and best sellers, but we love to spotlight the best books you might not otherwise have heard about, too.

    Our two best packages are eligible for the Best Book of the Year Awards. The $1,500 is credited to the author's Outskirts Press shopping cart account within 30 days following the public voting that determines the award-winning book. The EVVY Awards are an independent book awards contest held by the Colorado Independent Book Publishers Association. In the unlikely event the EVVY Awards do not take place and/or no Outskirts Press book wins an EVVY Award, alternate methods for determining the finalists will be announced.

    We know you’re inundated with year-end best books of the year lists–hence our annual tradition in which we reach out to top critics to try to come to some kind of consensus on the best books of the year. We also incorporate lists from some other publications (like the New York Times, Washington Post, The Guardian, AV Club, Slate, and the Chicago Tribune) to come up with our final tally. Read on to find out about the top ten books of the year and to see what some of our favorite critics have to say:
