    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.

        I hope these were the 2008 printings? If so, Quest.

          Quest had my fav 'ending' (even though it also had that cringworthy shouting-on-the-beach scene too: best forgotten).

            Point of Order Mr Pollster: Isn't The Sleeping Sorceress the same book as The Vanishing Tower? I think you'll find it is, but you've already asked us to vote on that in this poll.

            Well, I didn't vote for it then and I'm not going to vote for it now, so nyuk nyuk nyuk to you!

            _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."

              It's a fair cop! I didn't have a reference at the time and it has been a looooooong time since I read them. And if I had used LSD Dossier to get to the required 64 books - well what would be the point?

                What point indeed.

                Well, I guess if there's one book that deserves a 'bye' into the Second Round you couldn't pick a more deserving one than Quest.

                  A vote from me for the first recognised ending Mike wrote to the EC saga. (Yes I know about 'Stormbringer', but this is meant to tie all the ends up.)

                  Oh, and I already voted for TVT.

                  You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.
