This year has been all about genre - science fiction, fantasy and horror are on the rise everywhere we look, in cinema, in fashion and in popular culture. From supernatural detectives to the zombie apocalypse, from Steampunk to alternate realities, it all starts on the printed page!
Below are our favourite 25 books of this year, all stuff we've read and loved, and we're throwing this list out there for your feedback and opinion.
If we've missed something - or if we've committed a howler - it's up to you to let us know. So bring it on!
