Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

2019 Speculative Fiction Published This Year

2019 Speculative Fiction Published This Year

This challenge is intended as a way to help readers encourage themselves to read newly-published speculative fiction, as well as perhaps an opportunity to increase awareness for award nominations.

To assist with identifying books for this Challenge, you can use this search:

(note that these search results will include omnibuses, which consist of previously-published works and are not eligible for the Challenge)
