Joel (deliriumtrigger) | 312 comments Let's get nominations going for March, which is right around the corner.

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! Let's get the discussions back on track.

Joel (deliriumtrigger) | 312 comments I'll nominate The Dinosaur Lords by Victor Milan. A lot of people were really eager to get their hands on this one, and I'd love to hear everyone's opinions on it. Dinosaurs, fantasy, what could go wrong? Right?

message 3: by Jon (new)

Jon | 11 comments I'll nominate something a little older with Michael Moorcock's The Jewel in the Skull that I've been meaning to read for some months now. It's the first book in his History of the Runestaff series.
