    Does it follow that I reject all authority? Perish the thought. In the matter of boots, I defer to the authority of the boot-maker.

    That was close. I went with Breakfast because It's hard to consider All Songs by itself.

      Like yerself Opaloka i found this one hard.
      Ended up going for All Songs because of the way Mike closes the trilogy-Superb!!
      But i also liked the short stories in 'Breakfast' and the little moral dilemmas at the start(or is it end?)of the stories.

        Had to vote for The End of All Songs because Breakfast really creeped me out. All though, I consider Breakfast in the Ruins Mike's scariest book.

          I'm just into the first third of TEoAS at the moment but I'm going to have to vote for it over Breakfast because while Breakfast is a technically efficient novel it does leave you wanting to slash your wrists once you've finished it.

          _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
          _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
          _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

            Dancers for the final! An easy win in the first round I think!

              It was hard because 'Dancers' was the first I read and IMO the best of the fantasy series w/ the exception of 'war hound'.

                You could be right there Rothgo as long as they dont adopt the classic Scotland World cup move of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory!!

                  Like Rothgo and tf, it was easy for me. End of Time all the way.

                    Well, the End of All Songs didn't make me want to kill myself.

                    That probably counts as a plus.

                      Well that says it all really. Songs is funny - Breakfast is ... well... not!

                          Breakfast, I liked the challenges it posed to the reader, though a hard choice against EOAS.
                          'You know, I can't keep up with you. If I hadn't met you in person, I quite honestly would NOT believe you really existed. I just COULDN'T. You do so MUCH... if half of what goes into your zines is to be believed, you've read more at the age of 17 than I have at the age of 32 - LOTS more'
