Brent Weeks’s The Broken Eye retained the top spot on the hard­cover list for a second month with a commanding lead over second place finisher Lock In by John Scalzi. Hieroglyph, edited by Ed Finn & Kathryn Cramer (Morrow), was the new runner-up. There were 42 titles nominated, one less than last month.

For the first time in six months, books in George R.R.

The new runner-up was The Incrementalists by Steven Brust & Skyler White (Tor), with 61 nominated titles, down from last month’s 64.

Ancillary Justice
by Ann Leckie took the top spot on the trade pa­perback list for another month, with Acceptance by Jeff VanderMeer finishing second. No new runners-up appeared on the trade paper­back list. There were 48 nominated titles, up from last month’s 42.

John Jackson Miller, with Dave Filoni, held onto the top spot in media-related books with new release Star Wars: New Dawn. Miller’s Star Wars: Kenobi, last month’s top finisher, moved to fourth place. Star Wars: Bounty Hunter Code: From the Files of Boba Fett by Daniel Wallace claimed second. There were no new runners-up, with 17 nominated titles, up from 10 last month.

Forgotten Realms continued to dominate of the gaming-related list with Forgotten Realms: Companions Code 1: Night of the Hunter and Forgotten Realms: The Companions, both by R.A. Salvatore, returning to the top spots as numbers one and two, respectively. There were no new runners-up. There were 11 nominated titles, down from last month’s 17.
