  It's the end of the year, and I'm curious to know what novel knocked
  fellow list members for a loop this year. James Reasoner's Dust Devils
  did it for me. If this list is still around in another 10 years that
  novel will be one that people still talk about. I think Reasoner out
  Gold Medaled anything Gold Medal printed with that one. It's as close
  to a perfect story as I've ever read. So, what did it for you? What
  was published in 2007 that you think will go down in history?
