What is the best fantasy written in the last 25 years?
This is our last preliminary round.
After this, we're moving on to the quarterfinals. Please remember that there have been seven other preliminary rounds before this one, and if you don't see your favorite on here, you may have simply missed it.
Why am I saying this? Because every time I post one of these rounds, one of the bits of feedback I inevitably get is. "Oh my god how can you have a best fantasy without [insert my favorite thing here]. This poll is so illegitimate!" So please just remember that I'm only working off of YOUR nominations. We just need to cull a few titles off the lists for what will be going on to the next round. Keep checking back if you're desperately sure there is a criminal omission here.
There 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.
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."
For those of you on mobile devices, I'm told that if you click "View Web Version" and scroll ALLLLLLLLLLLL the way to the bottom, you can see the poll.
Note: If you see a title that is "breaking the rules" (older than 25 years–published before 1992) please let me know. I did not have time to cross check all of them.
Don't choose poorly.
