    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 still think TBC is slightly better, I'm afraid.

    _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."

        Will penalties just be a replay of the game I wonder? I mean, why change your vote?

          I agree Rothgo.
          Maybe a sudden death overtime scenario would be more appropriate
          during which the poll stays open until the next and final, deciding vote is cast.

            What if everyone only had one vote (penalty kick) for all penalty shoot-outs in the same round? Scout's honor should be enough to work it.

              I think the plan is that Groakes isn't voting this time around. Since he voted in the first round, which resulted in a draw, even if everyone else votes as before the final result would be one less than first time. In the event that someone who didn't vote first time votes this time and forces another draw, Groakes will be able to cast his vote to decide the matter.

                  Couldn't make my mind up first time round, but I've given it some thought and gone with TBC. There's just so much to make you think in it.
                  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.

                    Besides, Elric of Melniboné could do with a "serious rewrite" according to the author.

                      I've gone with TBC again but see Elric of Melnibone is currently in the lead. Nooooo!

                        I like TBC but have only read it once where I have read Elric, well I've lost count how many times. Since Elric of Melnibone was the first Moorcock book I read and has greatly influenced me, I have to with it.
