Best Modern Fantasy (Round 6 Results)

What is the best fantasy book or series in the last 25 years?

I'm working on a monster two-parter for later in the week, and I did a personal update on Friday, so I'm just going to drop the results of round six here.

Somewhere along the line, I got "off" on the naming of these polls. I must have done round four twice or something. Because we should have had eight rounds to get us to the quarterfinals, and it looks like we're going to have our poll shaken out by the end of next round. So stay tuned until tomorrow when I will put up the final preliminary round.

Please don't forget the rules. Eddings's Belgariad was on the original poll but, as was pointed out, missed the cut off by nearly a decade.

Top Four are going on to the quarterfinals.
