The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. by Neal Stephenson & Nicole Galland rose from second place on the hardcover list last month to first place this month, followed by Tad Williams’s The Witchwood Crown. Spoonbenders by Da­ryl Gregory (Knopf) was the first runner-up. There were 55 nominated titles, up from 53 last month.

On the paperback list, Neil Gaiman’s American Gods: The Tenth An­niversary Edition firmly held onto first place with a large lead over second place finisher The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Buoyed by the television show, Charlaine Harris’s Midnight Crossroad (Ace), book one in the Midnight, Texas trilogy, was the new runner-up. There were 46 nominated titles, down from 58 last month.

Classic novel and last month’s second-place finisher, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, took first place on the trade paperback list, with The Year’s Best Science Fiction: Thirty-fourth Annual Collection edited by Gardner Dozois in a close second. The new runner-up was Lost Boy by Christina Henry (Berkley). We had 44 nominated titles, down from 68 last month.

New release Star Wars: Battlefront II: Inferno Squad by Christie Golden barely squeaked past second-place finisher Timothy Zahn’s Star Wars: Thrawn to claim first place on our media-related & gaming-related list. There were no new runners-up; 23 titles were nominated, up from 15 last month.
