Books Read 2017

In chronological order, as recorded in Librarything, the 63 novels and graphic novels I read in 2017. Favourites were Walter Jon Williams' Investments, a bridge between the two Praxis trilogies, both novels in Paul McAuley's near- and far-future Jackaroo series, and Malka Older's political post-cyberpunk Infomocracy.

On to 2018!
