This Immortal and Jack of Shadows were tied for second place in the last poll, so I'm going to go ahead and nominate them both for this month.

Jim (JimMacLachlan) | 874 comments I'll second them, but I think I'll vote for Jack again. I've read Conrad recently.

Mohammed (Maxamed) | 83 comments Jack easily for me.

This Immortal was quality book but i dont re-read ;)

Dan Schwent  (akaGunslinger) | 53 comments I'm nominating My Name is Legion, as I've already read Jack and This Immortal.

Jim (JimMacLachlan) | 874 comments You really need to re-read "This Immortal", Mohammed. Maybe not too soon, but it's not a book that you completely get with one reading.


message 6: by Mohammed, Dilvish The Damned (new)

Mohammed (Maxamed) | 83 comments I plan to re-read only the absolute favs later on. I'm too young as a SFF reader at the moment to re-read even the best books.

I plan to read 99% of my fav writers works before i start re-reading. RZ is in that top 10-15 authors list as you can see in my Goodreads fav author list.

Jim (JimMacLachlan) | 874 comments Any other nominations for the December reads? I don't know when Dan is going to close the polls. So far we have:

Jack of Shadows
This Immortal
My Name Is Legion

I just finished reading My Name Is Legion in Last Exit to Babylon - Volume 4 The Collected Stories of Roger Zelazny. It's 3 very good short stories.

Dan Schwent  (akaGunslinger) | 53 comments The poll goes up on the 15th so everyone get your nominations in by then.


message 9: by Dan, Jack of Shadows (new)

Dan Schwent  (akaGunslinger) | 53 comments The polls are open! Everyone should have a message in their email box.


message 10: by Jim, Keeper of the Pattern (new)

Jim (JimMacLachlan) | 874 comments ... and the race is on!

Jack of Shadows takes a big lead out there, breaking away from the rest of the field with 8 votes.

My Name Is Legion is following with just 4, while This Immortal trails the field with only 3 votes.

We have 15 votes out of 56 members. Let's make this a race to remember. Vote early & often, folks!

The polls close on the 22nd. So if you haven't voted yet, get down to the polls and vote for My Name is Legion as fast as you can!
