George R.R. Martin has good news and bad news for "Game of Thrones" fans who hoped to catch a glimpse of the author at San Diego Comic-Con International this year. The bad news: He probably won't be there. The good news: He's skipping this year's event to focus on writing "The Winds of Winter,"...

28.Review: 'Welcome to Braggsville' by T. Geronimo Johnson
In the opening scenes of T. Geronimo Johnson's genre-busting second novel, Georgia boy D'aron Davenport has no idea how much trouble is headed his way. D'aron and three friends from the University of California at Berkeley are traveling to his hometown of Braggsville, Ga., for its Pride Week...

29.Review: 'The Whites' by Richard Price writing as Harry Brandt
When Richard Price adopted the pen name Harry Brandt for his new novel, "The Whites," this practitioner of hard-edged literary fiction ("Clockers," "Freedomland") did so thinking it would help ease him into a generic mode. But as someone who writes so much from the gut, with such an expansive...

31.Review: 'Lacy Eye' by Jessica Treadway
While her older sister excelled on the athletic fields, in classrooms and at parties, Dawn was that girl who just never quite fit in. Maybe it was her amblyopia,the condition otherwise known as lazy eye, but maybe there was something more going on?

32.Review: 'The Future of the Catholic Church With Pope Francis' by Garry Wills
"The Future of the Catholic Church With Pope Francis," Garry Wills' new book, isn't really about Pope Francis, though that surprising man from Argentina figures in the story, nor is it a book about the future of the Catholic Church. But once you get past that rather misleading title —...

33.Review: 'World Gone By' by Dennis Lehane
"I f—ing love being a gangster!" says Rico, one of the lower-level crime bosses in Dennis Lehane's terrific "World Gone By." Now, there's something you never hear the gloomy dons in "The Godfather" and "The Sopranos" utter. Rico doesn't just love the life because he gets to shoot people...

36.Review: 'Aquarium' by David Vann
"A beautiful book." This coded and cliched phrase, usually associated with a novel, generally speaks to an elegant use of language, a finely chiseled work of imagination.

37.Review: 'The Buried Giant' by Kazuo Ishiguro
If I had to nominate one novel from the last 50 years for preservation, it would be "Never Let Me Go" by Kazuo Ishiguro. It's probably the wrong choice — a book without the vast synoptic intelligence of David Foster Wallace's "Infinite Jest" or the irritated multigenerational empathy of...

38.Review: 'H Is for Hawk' by Helen Macdonald
Helen Macdonald's "H Is for Hawk" is one of a kind, unless there are other grief memoirs/falconry tales/literary analyses out there.

42.James McGrath Morris on Ethel Payne, 'Eye on the Struggle'
Although white Chicagoans knew little about Ethel Payne, a city reporter and later Washington correspondent for the Chicago Defender in the 1950s and '60s, African-Americans here and around the country came to venerate her as the most prominent female black journalist of her day. Late in...

43.Review: 'Lucky Alan' by Jonathan Lethem
Jonathan Lethem's imagination seemingly knows no bounds. Having published science-fiction novels and stories early in his career, he has gained more mainstream recognition with the critical and popular successes of novels such as "Motherless Brooklyn" and "The Fortress of Solitude." Nonetheless...

44.'Grand Budapest Hotel' special among Oscar-nominated screenplays
This year's Academy Award-nominated screenplays in the "adapted" category include a trio of variously effective and affecting whitewash jobs based on real people ("American Sniper," "The Imitation Game," "The Theory of Everything"); a ripping melodrama taken from a short film designed to...

46.Review: 'Jam on the Vine' by LaShonda Katrice Barnett
So many historical novels read like connect-the-dots puzzles or costume dramas, so one that is fresh, original and time-travels to an undiscovered past is a real discovery.

49.Review: 'A Spool of Blue Thread' by Anne Tyler
There was a time when the favorite way to put down Anne Tyler was to refer to her novels as "middlebrow." Particularly in the 1980s, a decade of triumphs that began with "Morgan's Passing" and continued with "Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant," "The Accidental Tourist" and the Pulitzer...

50.Review: 'Believer' by David Axelrod
For most of Barack Obama's meteoric political career, David Axelrod was the guy. He was the rumpled fella over there in the corner plotting the next move. How to spin it, sell it, defend it, bury it. Whatever the occasion called for. It was Axelrod who produced "Yes we can!" when Obama was...
