message 1: by Christopher (new)

Christopher D How can these be your choice of the best books of 2013 if you gave one 3 out 5 stars?

Even if you go by 2 to the power n when 2= a star, that would make 3-starts the 87.5 percentile; and usually these are more liner, with approximately as many being willing to underrate as overrate and to not overrate as to not underrate; but even at 87.5 that would mean out of every 8 books there would be one out there and there couldn't have been more than 115 fantasy books done, when in fact there were 1000's.

Now I realize that some editor might have different standards than the general public: saleability, fitting within certain defined niches, and that the ppl who come to your cite don't necessarily represent such groups and that there are at least dozen of niches and only 8-voters; but that would only point out a flaw in your voting system, and when a place makes small mistakes systematic mistakes they make, large systematic mistakes as well.

Artemas By the gods. Paranormal really needs to be its own category. That way their volumes won't keep polluting all the other fantasy polls.
