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

Best Classic SciFi Not Written by a Cis Het White Man (Poll Results)

Please check out this post if you wonder why we have particular limitations.

Yesterday I spiked a fever, fell into bed, didn't get a post up, and had fever dreams though like 13 hours of sleeping. Today I seem be able to get a little bit of work done from bed, at least.

Hope you enjoyed the extra day to vote.

Regardless, I'm still dealing with a mild headache and don't want to press my luck, so just a quick post of the results from our latest poll. I would have loved to wait until that third place tie resolved or even that the spreads weren't quite so close, but we need to move on to the next poll. I was actually shocked to see the 11th hour slip of The Handmaid's Tale from second place to tied for third, so never let it be said that the last call for votes doesn't matter.

I secretly wonder how many people voted for Frankenstein have actually READ Frankenstein, rather than just knowing they were supposed to like it, but I don't presume.

For our next poll, fire up your thoughts on HORROR.
