Fantasy Literature Poll - Semifinals 1
« on: October 25, 2010, 02:05:47 PM »
And we're into the final stretch!  Just four worlds left now, competing for the ultimate fantasy prize!  Which is to say the prize is non-existant, except for the love of Escape Artist readers.  Which has got to be worth a lot, doesn't it?

In any case, last week Good Omens beat King Arthur by just one vote!  That one vote keeps both Gaiman and Pratchett alive! 

This week, we have what I think is this poll's first re-match.  Due to the way the elimination round shook things up, we have both works that survived group H going up against each other again.  Back then, you could vote for however many you wanted, and I'm sure lots of people voted for both of these - so the contest is very different now.  In group H, Harry Potter came in first place - but only by one vote vs. the Last Unicorn.  Since then, both have come out victorious against some amazing novels:

Last Unicorn has beaten: Neverwhere, Graveyard Book, American Gods, Stardust, and The City & the City.
Harry Potter hes beaten: Princess Bride, Narnia, the Iliad, Dark Tower, and Watership Down.
