    The big upset of the final 24 hours saw Byzantium Endures falling at the final hurdle when it was pipped to the finishing line by The Dragon in the Sword.

    In terms of the number of votes cast, the best supported novel was The Chronicles of Corum with 37 individual votes. Does it have the legs to make it all the way to the final two? Only you can decide that by voting for it in the next rounds, but it goes into Round 2 as the Favourite.

    Every title received at least one vote and the least number of votes cast for any title was 2, so wooden spoons to this year's 'losers': The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle and Silverheart.

    Pairings for Round 2 will follow shortly, with the polls opening not long after that.
    _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
    _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."

    Every book in the Between the Wars sequence fell in round one!
    Now that is a shock.

        Uggh. The Land Leviathan and the Steel Tsar knocked out already. A rough ride for Bastable this year.
