    ML. I like Bastable, but ML is just an amazing tome.

      Again, no contest in terms of literary ambition, depth, characterisation, and many other aspects, so it's gotta be ML.

      I've missed this for a couple of weeks - what happened to Gloriana this year?! Just shows how things change, chaos is constant...

        Glory came up against Warlord of the Air and lost a close-fought match in Round 2, zakt. Came as a bit of a surprise after last year!
        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.

          Are you listening J-Sun? I said no contest!
          I think I agree....
          This sucks, as these are my two favorite MM books. It`s like having to vote which of your kids you love the most.

          ML is the superior book. It`s a more sophisticated style, and it deserves to win.

          That said, I voted for Warlord. While I think ML could and should win any and every year it runs, I think Bastable will get far fewer chances at the title, so I`d love to see him get it just once. So yeah, despite the fact that ML should win, I want to see Warlord win.

              The resilience of Bastible is remarkable! I thought this would be a push-over, but apparently not.

              Bastible has picked up a lot more votes in the last 48hrs: with only a day left to go, can ML hold out?
