Best Fantasy Poll Round 3 (And Farewell to Gavriel Kay)

It's no Mists of Avalon, to be sure.
Gavriel Kay did not survive round two.  Sorry Gav.  

The poll itself is at the bottom of the left hand "widgets" (the menus, ads, share buttons, and such that run down the left side of the screen). 

For round three, everyone only gets three (3) votes.  With five votes, everyone has one or two left over to give to The Princess Bride.  But will it do so well against The Mists of Avalon when people have fewer votes?  We shall see!

I'm getting a lot of emails from people who are upset that this title or that title is not on the poll.  Remember, the nomination process has concluded, but I encourage you to stick around as A) I'm pretty much always running some kind of similar poll (we'll be doing horror next) and you can always BE a part of the nomination process, and B) stand alone fantasy will eventually come back around as the poll subject, and you'll have the chance to get in on the nomination.

So bookmark this page and be a part of the next poll!

With two one concluded, I fleeced the bottom three performers from the list--and Gavriel Kay did not come out a winner.  Both his books on the poll were culled, I'm afraid.

I'll leave this poll up for a week.  Next Thursday I will put up the FINALISTS and everyone will get only two votes.

Remember, I'm not JUST doing this to draw out the drama.  "Changing the Creepy Guy Narrative" is still bringing in a lot of demographically atypical readers, so only the people who keep coming back each week will really be able to influence which titles move on to the next rounds.  For the final poll we should have somewhere between seven and ten titles and two votes each.
