Locus 'Year in Review' for 2015

Locus magazine's "Year in Review" issue is now available, and it's their most information packed issue of the year. It features recommended reading lists and extensive commentary from numerous reviewers, critics, and editors. Here's a brief sample:

Graham Sleight
A dozen books worth your time this year:
House of Shattered Wings by Aliette de Bodard
Wylding Hall by Elizabeth Hand
Dragon Heart by Cecelia Holland
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
The Best of Nancy Kress by Nancy Kress
Get in Trouble by Kelly Link
The Grace of Kings by Ken Liu
Three Moments of an Explosion by China Miéville
Galapagos Regained by James Morrow
Aurora by Kim Stanley Robinson
The Thing Itself by Adam Roberts
Chasing the Phoenix by Michael Swanwick

Russell Letson
Hidden Folk by Eleanor Arnason
Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear
Tracker by C.J. Cherryh
Ancillary Mercy by Ann Leckie
Luna: New Moon by Ian McDonald
Where by Kit Reed
Gypsy by Carter Scholz
Chasing the Phoenix by Michael Swanwick

I think both Sleight and Letson offer excellent recommendations. My choice for best science fiction novel of the year is Aurora by Kim Stanley Robinson, and best single-author collection is Get in Trouble by Kelly Link.
