Cybils Fantasy and Science Fiction Nominations

The final tally of nominations in the fantasy and science fiction category is 88 books. Here is the complete list, along with links to reviews that have been written by the fantasy and science fiction nominating and judging committee members since the beginning of the Cybils. Reviews should not be taken as an indication of how committee members will vote on a book.

This list would make a great gift guide for holiday presents for a young fantasy and science fiction fan, or just a good reading list if you’re looking for some of the best genre books of the year.
