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 (Semifinal 2)

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

The second semifinals shake out, and it's looking like there may need to be some divine shenanigans from on high to shake up the finals. Stay tuned to see what I'm on about.

I'm glad Gaiman and Pratchett had such a strong showing. They are obviously two of my favorites, but this fucking poll has taken us like three months to get to, and is now in danger of being a bit boring because half the poll will only be two authors, so get ready for things to go a little pear shaped....later on today.

And thank you to so many of you for voting.

Text results below.

Night Watch- T. Pratchett 186 31.16%
American Gods- N. Gaiman 130 21.78%
Neverwhere- N. Gaiman 84 14.07%
