New Poll!!!

Hi guys!

Well, since the last 2 polls were extremely popular, and since I've been asked when the next survey would be held ever since results of the last one were announced, I've decided to give it another go!;-)

Again, this poll will be held here, but also in other internet communities, making the whole process much more interesting.

So this one will determine what are your Top 5 All-Time Favourite Fantasy Series. The last time around, it was about "ongoing" series. This time, everything goes!;-)

The results will be tallied the same way the last Top 5 was compiled. Let's see what we come up with. I'll probably post the results at the end of the week...

Feel free to vote here or on your regular message boards.

Lord of the Rings is in a class unto itself so I'm not including it

Completed:

Memory, Sorrow and Thorn by Tad Williams

The Well-Built City (The Physiognomy, Memoranda, The Beyond) by Jeffrey Ford

Farseer/Liveship/Tawny Man trilogy of trilogies by Robin Hobb

The Acts of Caine thus far encompassing Heroes Die and Blade of Tyshalle

The Kingdoms of Thorn and Bone by Greg Keyes

Marc Dalesandro said...

The Dark Tower? Ugh. That sure ended with an enormous thud.

First three books are good, though. "The Waste Lands" has some on King's best writing. All downhill from there, however.

Juniper said...

I'll go for "The Acts of Caine" as well, didn't know it was unfinished...

Also the Farseer series by Robin Hobb

The Fionavar Tapestry trilogy by Guy Gavriel Kay

I'd like to point out that Tolkien's Lord of the Rings is actually not a series - it was intended to be a single novel, but to defray publishing costs and because of other concerns it was split up.

(1) George R.R. Martin - A song of Ice and Fire
(2) Robert Jordan - Wheel of Time
(3) Raymond E. Feist - Serpentwar Saga
(4) Orson Scott Card - Ender's Game etc. [And yes, technically its SF....but oh well. its great]
