My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

Best Modern Fantasy (First Round)

What is the best fantasy written in the last 15 years? 

We have SO many nominations for Best Modern Fantasy that we are going to have to do a round before quarter finals.  So in order for this not to drag on for months, I'll be running these early rounds for only THREE DAYS EACH.

That's it. Three days. No more. No less. Three shalt be the number of the days, and the number of the days shall be three. Four shalt not be the days, nor either count of two, excepting that thou then proceed to three days. Five is right out.

That means you have three days (not as thou previously establishethed four or five) to pick which of these eight titles will go on to our final round. Everyone will get three (3) choices–not two or four–and the top four winners will be back for the quarterfinals.

There is no way to "rank" votes, so use as few as you can bare.

The poll itself is at the bottom left, under the "About The Author." 

Note: If you see a title that is "breaking the rules" (older than 15 years) please let me know. I did not have time to cross check all of them.

Don't choose poorly.


  1. Technically Harry Potter is twenty years old, though I suppose the final one is only ten, so that averages out to 15.

  2. Eoin Colfer - Artemis Fowl series (or maybe just first three books tbh)

  3. Rick Ridorian: Percy Jackson and the Olympians
