Time for our traditional end of year listing of our top ten traffic generating posts for 2016. This year I am also including an accounting of the ten most downloaded free SciFi and Fantasy eBooks. Once again, David Nadas made the list with a number six placing for his short story “23 Skidoo.” Congratulations David! In keeping with last year, SciFi short films had a strong following and fared well on the site. In fact, “The Leviathan” by Ruairi Robinson took the number one slot last year and continued to bring in traffic. I am especially fond of number four: “Immortal AD Vitam” by Charles Gassot. That movie is a must see if you have not viewed it yet. For the first time, Science Fiction awards posts made the top ten as did my review of Ernest Cline’s novel “Ready Player One.”

Drum Roll Please. . . . . . . . . . . .

Without further delays, here is the list:


  1. The Leviathan by Ruairi Robinson
  2. Sci-Fi Short of the Week: “Uncanny Valley”
  3. Nebula Awards Nominees for 2015 Announced
  4. Immortal AD Vitam by Charles Gassot
  5. 2016 Hugo Nominations Due March 31st
  6. 23 Skidoo by David Nadas
  7. Sci-Fi Concept Art of Kait Kubar
  8. 2016 Hugo Award Finalists Announced
  9. Dragon Con Launches Dragon Awards
  10. Review of Ernest Cline’s Novel Ready Player One

Top 10 Free eBooks Downloaded:

  1. Maelstrom by Peter Watts
  2. Behemoth by Peter Watts
  3. Blindsight by Peter Watts
  4. Starfish by Peter Watts
  5. Galactic Derelict by Andre Alice Norton
  6. Shadow out of Time by H.P. Lovecraft
  7. Time Traders by Andre Alice Norton
  8. November Seed by David Nadas
  9. Shadows in Zamboula by Robert E. Howard

Peter Watts took the top four slots with his Rifters books. If you have not read them yet, you need to rectify that situation ASAP. David’s novella “November Seed” is hanging tight at slot number eight. I also think it’s cool that Robert E. Howard’s “Shadows in Zamboula” squeaked in at number nine.
