Vote for Robin Hobb's Books (Urgent) - Farseer - 14-01-2011

G'day everyone!

Sorry I have not been on for a while and I apologise if you already have this urgent voting information on the Blood Memories site (I can't tell! LoL ) but I have only just found out the news from Mervi over on thePlenty.net. In case you don't know about it, Tor.com is asking for readers to vote for the best sci-fi/fantasy books of the last decade.

If you would like to vote for Robin's books, you can go to here to read through the rules and cast your vote. The poll closes 11:59 PM EST on Friday, January 14 - that's TODAY so you may need to be quick to have your vote/s count.

The Hobb books that are eligible (from 2000 onward) are:

- Ship of Destiny
- Fool's Errand
- The Golden Fool
- Fool's Fate
- Shaman's Crossing
- Forest Mage
- Renegade Magic
- Dragon Keeper
- Dragon Haven

Quite a few people have simply voted the Tawny Man series rather than put down the names for individual books. I voted as NettaRick (Farseer was taken! Cry ), so you will see me somewhere there.

Thanks for spreading the news, Annette! Clap Clap If it was'nt for you, we couldn't vote for Robin! Inchin

Tor.com says:

Citazione:Any novel published from January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2010 is eligible and there’s no limit to how many you can pick.
We’ll tabulate the novels mentioned in the comments until 11:59 PM EST on Friday, January 14

which in Italian means (more or less ^^):

Citazione:È possibile votare qualsiasi romanzo che sia stato pubblicato fra il 1° gennaio 2000 e il 31 dicembre 2010 e non c'è limite al numero di titoli che si possono indicare.
Saranno considerati i romanzi menzionati nei commenti fino alle 5:59 di sabato 15 gennaio (ora italiana!)

So, let's go vote!!! Yeee

Glad to help get the 'Hobb' word out there, and I am sorry I didn't ask permission first, before spreading the news to everyone Unsure ! Time was tight and, to make matters worse, my internet connection has been going up and down with all of the storms about (so I didn't even get to read the rules myself prior to voting Smile !). I will be sure to send a private message next time!

mmm...
If I can vote for all the books I want, then that's good for, otherwise I would not, in all honesty, could have chosen ONE book*.
The problem now is there's too many books so I would vote for ...Unsure

*and not necessarily by Robin.

You need no permission to spread so interesting news! Quite the opposite, you're very welcome! Occhiolino
