It's that time of the year, dear readers!
Hard to believe it may be - I'm still wondering where October went, never mind November - but it's time to start thinking about 2012 as a whole. To consider the very best of the very best. And as ever, I need all the help I can get.
I go to the movies as often as I can... I play video games on the PS3, the PC and the 360... I read more books than most humans — but there's only the one of me, and I can't hope to be in any sense comprehensive. What I can do is ask you if I'm missing anything particularly significant.
So here I am, hat in hand... asking.
This post is intended as an open forum for you to put your personal favourites forward. If there's a book you think is brilliant, and I haven't already reviewed it here or on Tor.com - here's my page over there - then it's entirely likely I haven't read it. If there's some magnificent film or obscure video game that I haven't said word one about, please, point me in the right direction.
Top of the Scots starts on December 17th, which gives us approximately ten days to talk. I can read three or four normal-length novels in that time, watch at least as many movies, and play perhaps a pair of games, depending on how long they're apt to last. I've cleared the slate specifically so I can do exactly as outlined... so let fly your recommendations, folks!
Who needs holidays, eh? :)
