Best science fiction and fantasy books of | Books | The GuardianThis has been a really great year for science fiction, fantasy and horror books, taking us to fabulous worlds and opening our minds to new ideas and brilliant new characters. Taking place in a parched American Southwest and spread out amongst a journalist, a refugee and a mercenary, this book shows how things go off track when the local rights to what little water remains comes into question. Origin stories happen all the time in comics, and in this novel, Lois Lane gets her own cool story about her beginnings. Even as Supergirl and Agent Carter were conquering our TV screens, this superhero tie-in was creating its own huge stir among readers. Rosemarie joins the crew of the Wayfarer, and goes on one hell of an adventure. You know that fun feeling that you had with Firefly or Farscape?

He is not, of course: his books are as available, and as widely read, as ever. What we are witnessing is a struggle for the soul of the genre.
