Some great science fiction reads in 2017 – here are five of the best (and three honourable mentions):
Claire G Coleman’ stunning debut Terra Nullius was speculative fiction that shone a new light on the colonisation of Australia.
John Scalzi created an empire just to start destroying it in the enjoyable space opera The Collapsing Empire.
Becky Chambers also impressed with the follow up to her debut with A Closed and Common Orbit.
Ann Leckie gave us Provenance, a stand alone novel set in the same universe as her award winning Ancillary series.
