In media-related books, Star Wars: Maul: Lockdown by Joe Schreiber barely beat out last month’s second place winner, Star Trek: The Next Generation: Takedown by John Jackson Miller to take first place. There were no new runners-up. There were 16 nominated titles, down from 20 last month.

In gaming-related books, Karen Traviss’s Halo: Mortal Dictata beat last month’s first place winner, Graham McNeill’s Warhammer 40,000: The Horus Heresy: Vengeful Spirit, by one point, taking first place with the McNeill second.
