Best Sci-Fi Book (or Series) [FINAL ROUND]
[Reminder: I am sick with Covid-19 (or at least I'm 90% sure I am). Today was a good day, and I was able to get a little writing done. But I'm told there's a pretty good chance this thing takes one more "swing" at me in the 7-9 day range. I'll keep writing as I can and posting "jazz hands" if I can't write but can do a LITTLE something and keep just resting and taking days completely off if I can't do either.]
What is the best science fiction book (or series) written before 1975?
OUR FINAL ROUND IS LIVE! COME VOTE.
Remember it's a poll. If you don't come to the page and vote, your comment will disappear into the ether of social media and be all but forgotten in a moment, but if you vote, the results will go on our results page for YEARS (at least until the next identical poll).
Also these choices have been pared down from two semifinal rounds and your own nominations. I didn't "leave out" your favorite. If I picked the choices, there would be a lot fewer white dudes.
I do want to stress one thing. This poll is about books. It is not about Sting in an 80s-style stillsuit. This is about written literature. And if you thought that Dune the book was a little slow, vote for something else.
This poll will probably be up for the rest of April, but THAT'S IT. So grab your friends, whip up those fan clubs, vote early and vote often.
Everyone get three (3) votes, but that there is no ranking, so using as few votes as possible is better.
The poll itself is in the lower left at the bottom of the side menus.
I'm told if you're on mobile you have to click "webpage view" then scroll alllllllllll the way to the bottom, you can find the poll. But if that doesn't work either, you are experiencing a problem that is not common but is normal, and you can go right to the website here: https://poll.fm/10533632
