Happy New Year!

The New York Times recently ran a list of 100 “notable” books (fiction and poetry) from 2007. I looked through it carefully but except for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the only thing approximating spec fic that I could see was Micheal Chabon's The Yiddish Policemen's Union. At first I figured those were the only notable spec fic books in 2007 [ -) ], but then I read the intro, and it says the list was compiled only from books the NY Times reviewed, so that explains it.

On the other hand, GalleyCat ran a nicely organized month-by-month review of what happened in publishing for the year, with links to the fuller stories.

It's the first day of 2008! Happy New Year, everyone!
