Joust ended Crossroads of Twilight's two-month reign at the top of the hardcover list, edging it out by a narrow margin. New runner-up: Sin's Doorway and Other Ominous Entrances by Manly Wade Wellman (Night Shade). We had 62 nominees, down from 83 last month.

A Storm of Swords had no close competition in the paperbacks category. There was no new runner-up. Nominees: 67, down from 102.

The Tomorrow Log moved from second to first place on the trade paperback list by a solid margin. New runner-up: Jasper Fforde's The Eyre Affair (Penguin). Nominees: 43, down from 66.

Star Wars: Tatooine Ghost, Star Wars: The New Jedi Order: Force Heretic I: Remnant, and X-Men 2 were all within a few points of each other on the media-related list. Nominees: 24, down from 29.

DragonLance: Dragons of a Vanished Moon dominated gaming-related books with over three times as many points as the next title. Nominees: 23, down from 36.
