1634: The Galileo Affair went from last month’s runner-up to number one in the hardcover category, with the next three titles jostling for position. New runner-up: Absolution Gap by Alastair Reynolds (Ace). We had 51 nominees, down from 57 last month.

Talon of the Silver Hawk tromped the competition, easily taking the paperback category. New runner-up: Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s Consequences (Roc). Nominees: holding at 78.

Pattern Recognition kept its lead in the trade paperback category for the third month in a row, beating out Midnight Tides by a single vote and closely followed by The Labyrinth Key. New runner-up: Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale by Holly Black (Simon Pulse). Nominees: 38, down from 49.

The new “Star Trek, the Next Generation” novel boldly went to the top of the media-related category with a tremendous lead in its debut month, and was joined by three other titles from the same series. Nominees: 30, up from 28 last month.

Halo: First Strike prevails for the fifth month straight, with Halo: The Flood, in its tenth appearance on the gaming-related list, taking second. Nominees: 18, same as last month.
