So the four judges and I thought we would offer a little extra contest. I had each of them send me their top five favorite titles, which I have compiled in a list below. You can see these twenty titles are excellent, intriguing hints of the stories they herald.
Here's the game: Each of you gets to vote on your three favorites. Email your picks to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) listed in order of preference. Your top pick will get 10 points, your second pick will get 5 points, your third pick will get 3 points.
I will tally up the points on Friday, and the author whose title received the most points will win . . .
