Reader's Choice: Results and 2010 Series Poll

Unfortunately, I've reached the end of the interview pool unless Naomi Novik is lurking around somewhere and just enjoys watching me squirm.

I've got a few things planned for 2010 and a few end of the year pieces in the works but it may be a little slow around here due to travel and the holidays.

In the midst of this down period, I am going to try to catch up on some reviews (2 left) and finish a few more books by the end of the year including Paolo Bacigalupi's Ship Breaker.

Technically, Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan won the reader's choice poll I conducted last month but since I already finished it (probably due to its quality), I'm going to read the 2nd place finisher as well. Not ignoring the fact that I love Bacigalupi's stuff. On a completely unrelated note, Paolo Bacigalupi's favorite anagram for his name is Labia Goal Cup Poi. Who knew?

For next year, I'm going to start the year off with a completed series or two or possibly three. I'm considering quite a few series and I'm not sure which I will feel like reading at this point. I will however, read one completed series as nominated by you the readers.

So the new poll, running through mid-January is:

Which completed series would you like me to tackle in 2010?
Vote for as many series as you would like. Any other recently completed series that you would recommend?


  1. The Old Man's War series is worth finishing. I was severely disappointed with how The Fourth Realm closed out.

    A couple completed series I finished this year include Finlay's Traitor to the Crown and Ruckley's Godless World both of which I would recommend. Although both have their slow parts. I'm hoping to catch up on the Pitt series next year as well and I might finish Chadbourn’s Age of Misrule series before this year is out god willing.

  2. I'd vote for either the Codex Alera or the Entire & the Rose series, as I'll be starting both come the new year as well.

    I'm currently bogged down in reading too many things (for research and other things), so I'm stalled in Book 2 of Mark Chadbourn's excellent Age of Misrule series.

    If you want another series of classic SF that's come back to print, why not try Otis Adelbert Kline's Swordsman of Mars/Outlaws of Mars books from Planet Stories (not published in complete form since 1933)?
