Joel (deliriumtrigger) | 312 comments Hi everyone, glad we had a great August book discussion. We're on to September, so lets find a a book that is equivalently interesting to talk about!

As always, rules are as follows:

1) Each person is allowed ONE vote, either a nomination OR a "second"

2) Once a book is "seconded", it is added to the poll list

3) Once five books are on the poll list, this thread closes and voting begins

4) No self promotion allowed - if outside vote stacking or promotion is discovered, a book will be DQ'd automatically.

Thanks everyone!

Joel (deliriumtrigger) | 312 comments A little more sci-fi than fantasy, but I'm going to recommend my buddy (and new Campbell Award Winner) Wesley Chu's Time Salvager.

Michael (rabidnewz) Been meaning to read his newest. So I second Time Salvager.

Linda To Ride Hell’s Chasm was nominated last time and didn't win, but it still looks really good.

Matt Hageman Not sure if we can do anthologies, but if we can I nominate Rogues By: George R.R. Martin. That way we can discuss individual stories as well as the book as a whole.

message 15: by Devan (new)

Devan (dsuber3) | 12 comments I will add to the voice for Rogues, but I would like to discuss either Half The World or Half A War by Joe Abercrombie

message 16: by S (new)

S Pearlyan (purplewidow) | 2 comments I'll rather discuss Half a King, but happy to second Half the World.

message 17: by Eric (new)

Eric (koteric) | 10 comments The Shadow Of What Was Lost

I'd be fine with Half A King as well since that's probably the best out of the three, but i mentioned the other two because they came out this year and are pretty fresh in people's minds.

C.V. Dreesman (cvdreesman) | 4 comments Since Mark and Mark recommended and seconded Daggerspell and don't need a third...
I will recommend The Chronicles of Corum by Michael Moorcock
