Rhubarb has kindly given me the go ahead, so I'm going to be running the second year of the fiction vote. I promise not to lose the votes. Same as when I run film polls, you can vote for lists of 25/50 or 100 choices. Novels, short stories, poetry, plays, graphic novels, etc are all fine. I can't remember if Rhubarb allowed non-fiction last year, but despite the thread title, I'm ok with it. I'll add an email later, but I'm going to set a deadline of a month for now, and I'll extend it if need be.

email to empireliterature@hotmail.co.uk

I'll have a think and send a list later on. At least you won't have a big argument about whether to make the lists longer with you doing it

Like last time, will things like Calvin and Hobbes be clubbed together?

I think the only thing disallowed last year were religious texts.

Got it, thanks. Your number 27 (I think) is possibly going to be my nom for the next lit HoF if you feel like taking part.

Yeah, all one vote.

I think I'd actually be ok with them, if only for the possible fights if they make the results list.

I'm down for this. Are individual short stories alright, or will I have to vote for the collection they're in?

I forgot to include this in mine for some reason, I'll resend the corrected list in a minute or two.

I would, but my current reading list is sadly leaving me with little time for reading in my own time. I'm always happy to contribute to some Flann discussion though (which also reminds me of a glaring omission that I'd forgotten about).

Let me know if you have any recommendations for me based on my list by the way - I'll be finished this time next year and I suspect I'll have a lot of time off to read stuff I've been meaning to get round to.

The one above is from that Series too and I very nearly included another. They aren't great literature but I really enjoy reading some of them.

Twilight took her top five slots.

I have no idea how many Twilight books there are.

A very serious question, can we have The Ultimate Alphabet?
