2016 Reading List

This is a record of everything I\’ve read in 2016, with the new-for-2016 work separated out so I can identify Hugo-eligible works.  (See also my 2015 reading list.)  2016 works that I read in 2017 (before the Hugo nomination deadline) are also listed, marked with an asterisk.  As usual, the bolded works are the ones that I plan to at least consider for inclusion on my nominating ballot.  (Which isn\’t to say I didn\’t enjoy the other ones!  Even trying to define a bar for what\’s worth nominating is hard.)
