    No, they are not. Though Wizard and Glass got more votes, The Green Mile averaged a better score...just barely. The scores are below:

    The Green Mile - Final Average Score of 4.435897436

    Wizard and Glass - Final Average Score of 4.3603603604


    So it was like 7/100s of a point.

    Okay - I was looking at this info on the first post of this thread

    Bracket 8:
    Rose Madder: 79 votes - rated NR with 23 votes (29.11%) - highest ranking 3 with 19 votes (24.05%)
    Desperation: 90 votes - rated 4 with 29 votes (32.22%)
    The Regulators: 89 votes - rated 4 with 26 votes (29.21%)
    The Green Mile: 93 votes - rated 5 with 44 votes (47.31%)
    Wizard and Glass: 112 votes - rated 5 with 66 votes (58.93%)
    and the FAS aren't on there yet. Way close!!

    I know I was thinking the same thing . I really wish Desperation had made it on.

    On the upside, as it currently stands Desperation will get one of the six wildcard slots, so it may not be out just yet.

    Added to the first and second posts of this thread designations to the current holders of the six wildcard spots. This is subject to change, as losing books in the brackets yet to close can very well displace some of them if they score higher. But as it stands right now the following books will join the winners and runners-up in Round 2: Misery, The Eyes of the Dragon, Skeleton Crew, Desperation, Nightmares & Dreamscapes, and Firestarter.

    Well, you can take Firestarter off of that list. It was just bumped by Bag of Bones.

    The Bracket 9 results are in. Winner of the bracket is Hearts in Atlantis and the runner-up is On Writing, which I find a pleasant surprise. It beat out Bag of Bones by a verrry small margin.

    The next bracket will go up later today.

    I find this rather surprising as well. Didn't think any of the non-fiction books had a chance (you may remember my original proposal did not take into account the non-fiction). This is cool.

    Looks like ALL the DT stories will continue through to round 2. For those who really don't like that the tale they hate made it through, just put it one the ts list. Enjoy the day and Merry Christmas to those who are reading this on Christmas Day.

    And thus Round 1 closes. Merry Christmas to all!

    Awaiting official FAS numbers from Aaron, but with just a glance it looks like Duma Key will be declared the winner, and Just After Sunset the runner-up. Or I could be wrong. I'm sure Aaron will let us know soon enough and Round 2 will commence.

    The second post of this thread is being restructured into a comprehensive table. It's a work in progress and it may look off and incomplete for a little while. Sorry about that.

    And it's done. Now we just need the official totals for the last bracket and we should be ready for Round Two.

    Unfortunately, I'll be away on a mini-vacation from 1/1 till 1/6, so I'll probably miss the beginning of Round 2...
