It's December--we finally got snow where I live last Friday!--and so it's that time of year when people start making "best of 2011" lists. Best movies, best novels, best restaurants--you name it, people list it.
We've got some lists of our own here this week at Fantasy Matters, including Kat Howard's favorites from the year and, coming this afternoon, my list of scifi/fantasy holiday ornaments.
We are also excited to bring you some new contributors this week, including Mark Schelske, who was so inspired by Philip Ilten and my discussion of Terry Brooks' The Sword of Shannara that he wrote down his own thoughts about his favorite of Brooks' books--The Elfstones of Shannara. And we'll bring you a midweek story from Richard Thomas, another new contributor to the conversation here at Fantasy Matters.
It has all the makings of a very exciting week--we hope you are able to join in the fun!
