|Viking funerals are high fantasy, right?
No? Well, at least the image is off copyright.
It's time for May's poll. Specifically, it's time for the write in nominations for May's poll.
Best fantasy series.
So please nominate the series that you would like to see go on to our poll to compete for the chance to live forever in the fame and glory of being voted best on a second rate blog.
Unfortunately, the nominations on Science Fiction series were a little lukewarm, and I think that's because I tried to separate it by contemporary vs. classics. So we're going to throw fantasy all in together and let things get a little hot and sloppy around here.
1) You may nominate any two (2) series. It ought to only be one (your favorite) but I find this makes book lovers get awfully uncomfortable. There have been some problems with people nominating too many entries, so if you nominate three or more, I'll take your first two.
2) You may second (or third or fourth etc...) as many series as you want. In fact you should do that or they may not make the poll. Check back and see what others have nominated so you can give them secondings and they will make the poll.
Third and fourth "seconds" may even be necessary.
I have to stress that nothing is going on to the poll unless someone seconds it. There are going to be a lot of nominations and fierce competition, and the actual poll gets unruly beyond twelve (12) entries. If somehow we have over twenty (20) entries with the same number of "seconds" I will do a run off poll, but otherwise I'll have to pick the entries with the most seconds.
You definitely want to nominate series HERE, not on the social media pages of anywhere I share this link. Because otherwise they may not get the second they need.
3) The umbrella of fantasy is very wide (going all the way from the medieval high fantasy of Lord of the Rings to urban fantasy of Dresden to modern set fantasy of Harry Potter), so I will, as usual, err on the side of what you readers think it is without fussing too much about what "counts."
