    My nomination is for A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin.


    I regret leaving my soul
    I forgot I needed it, to feel
    maybe when I die
    I'll just grab it real quick

    Please god, anything but Twilight. I can't bear to read all those unnecessary adverbs and the thought of reading about those sad, brooding, angst ridden teenagers makes me a little sick to my stomach. For someone who is 200 years old, Edward is just too stupid to read about.

    A great read, imho.
    But, do we want to begin a series? (especially one that is unfinished)


    I will nominate:

    I'd like to toss out a left-field kind of nomination.

    It's probably my favorite genre book, and would fall mostly on the fantasy side ... but not really ( sounds intriguing, hunh? ) -

    Robert Silverberg's Lord Valentine's Castle.

    It's an award winner. It's readily available in all formats, and usually fairly easy to find used.

    Published in 1980, it's spawned several sequels, called collectively The Majipoor books.

    The Man In Black Fled Across The Desert...

    ...And The Gunslinger Followed.

    Anything by Matheson is great. He lacks the talent for writing badly.

    actually, BNWorld is my least favorite by Huxley, the most favorite being Crome Yellow.

    Brave New World? I just finished it a couple weeks ago. I was a bit dissapointed honestly.

    Shouldn't we have a vote, though, with all the books nominated?
