    just bumping this thread. Since the starter post is only updated, the thread doesn't appear in anyone's "unread" list, so people might just miss the fun of seeing the intrigue develop!

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)

    bears are back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I wish Desperation were ranked a little higher, but I'm glad to see it advancing to the next round.

    Ah, so if the poll closed today the wildcards would be:

    Misery
    Four Past Midnight
    Night Shift
    Skeleton Crew
    The Dead Zone
    Christine

    with Firestarter just missing.

    Other than me substituting Firestarter for Four Past Midnight, I have no problem with the tentative wildcard list. Looking forward to Round 2!

    Yeah I believe Firestarter (and Cujo - love those early '80s novels!) have never made it to Round 2, but have always been very close. Also too bad about Insomnia, one of my all-time favorites of King's.

    Wow. Christine didn't make it.

    4 of the 6 wild cards were collections rather than novels. Interesting.
