Some Of My Favorite Works of 2014

Several excellent writers have emerged on the SF/ Horror scene in the last two years: Kai Ashante Wilson, Sam J. Miller, Alyssa Wong, JY Yang, Kelly Sandoval, Shannon Peavey, Isabel Yap, Henry Lien, Carmen Maria Machado, and Lara Elena Donnelly. Their work is important & impressive and I recommend that you explore all their available stories before nominating your favorite candidate (s) for whatever awards you’re nominating for.
I read quite a bit of fiction in 2014–mostly short, but I managed several novels by listening to the audiobooks. Below are listed some of my favorite works. I’ll try to keep adding to these as I read more. But the following, I believe, are some of the best works of Scifi, Fantasy, Horror, and Weird published in 2014.
