It's time for December's poll.
What is, in your opinion, the BEST Science Fiction/Fantasy series? (Round 2)
As so many of you were so epically disappointed in the list of "best" series proffered up for November's poll (a list derived largely from compiling multiple internet articles on the matter), and as you shouted with your impassioned response to my query for write-in suggestions... I now offer up as many of those write-ins as I can.
In fact several of you came up with five or six "the best series." It's almost as if the word "best" got lost somewhere in the crossfire.
But no matter! We shall preserve!!! Rawr!
Five of the titles from the last poll will be moving on to the finals round. As will five titles from THIS poll. (Whichever five do the best.) Unless for some reason I get enough further write-in responses to run another semi final poll, the final match up will be in January.
I had to cull a few choices from each of the write-in submitters or I would have a poll of twenty--something that totally diffuses results to near meaninglessness. If, as I said, we get several more write ins, there may be cause to have another round of semi-finals. (And if things get really crazy up in here, and I get a LOT more write in responses, it is possible that this round will become a quarter final round, the winners will go on to the semi-finals and those winners will head to the finals--but that would take about 20 more series that people think are "the best.") If another poll does happen, I can add back in some of your other choices that fell off of this poll. But EVERYONE lost a couple.
Therefore, if you don't see the result you want here (and it wasn't in the last poll) you can put a further answer in comments, and if I get enough, we'll be adding even more to this poll.
Everyone gets three votes. Obviously voting only once will increase the "potency" of a given vote, but you may see more than one series that you simply have to acknowledge. I apologize in advance to those who are having trouble voting anonymously or via mobile devices. I don't know that I can fix that.
The poll itself is on the left column at the bottom. (Under my bio.) Happy votification!
