Re: Trek novel of the year 2012!

Personally -- and this is a hard decision to make -- I'd say that Typhon Pact: Plagues of Night was the best of 2012. I loved the way it slowly, slowly wracked up the tension until releasing it all with the final battle -- it feels like everything's suddenly spinning out of control, and then its final, shocking sentence is the dark finale. I just loved it.

Honorable mention to Typhon Pact: Raise the Dawn, Cold Equations: Silent Weapons, Vanguard: Storming Heaven, and Typhon Pact: Brinkmanship.

Blind Man's Bluff is going to skew the results as it doesn't belong. I have to say that reprints do not belong. Can we get a moderator to wipe out the poll (without having to start a new thread) so all the votes cast can be cast again?
