The first group stage is over!  There was no tie last week, but we have three second place ties to resolve.  Eight series tied for second place in their groups, and they all get to fight it out with each other to see which gets to advance to the second round. 

Last week Narnia series dominated, with Malory's Arthur coming somewhat behind the Lion.  Dirk Gently and the Dresden Files tied for third, but they don't get to move on. 

Second round begins in a week or so, there will probably be another gap of a few days between this poll ending and the next being put up.

The problem with a tie runoff with three stories moving forward, is that a tie for third is fairly likely.  We need more voters!

Would love to help, but I really don't want to vote for any of the ones in this round..  Sad

Hopefully, I'll see something I like in the next.

Voting closes today!  There's currently a five way tie for third...
