"The best sci-fi and fantasy books of 2020 to catch up with"

(My mother was a teacher and would correct the title to: The best sci-fi and fantasy books of 2020 with which to catch up)

This year’s crop of books are ones that have a thumb on the pulse of everything that’s been going on around us. But they’re not screeds lecturing readers about the evils of the world — they’re thoughtful, interesting stories with characters that you root for, fighting against huge challenges.

They’re fighting against oppression, wealth inequality, and racism. The characters are all trying to survive, to build new worlds, or save their friends and family from harm. Collectively, they’re the stories that show us the way out of a dismal world and into a slightly better one, one page at a time.

1. Some great titles on that list

I've read about 1/2 dozen of them, and they were uniformly excellent.
Relentless Moon is especially timely.
