At the Fantasy Book Club Series group on GoodReads, we are approaching the end of time, or rather the Wheel of Time series. We will start reading the final book in that series in May. On the first day of March, I started a nomination thread, confusingly entitled ‘Life After the Wheel of Time‘ soliciting suggestions for our next series group read. I remembered to send a spam-like e-mail to group members this morning, since I’d only seen a handful of series nominated in the first few days. My marketing efforts must be paying off, as two more series were nominated and seconded within an hour of the mass mailing.
Here are just a few of the series that will make it into the first round of voting:
- Rai-Kirah by Carol Berg
- Chronicle of the Black Company by Glen Cook
- Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia
- Spiritwalker by Kate Elliott
- Coldfire and Magister series (yes two of them) by C.S. Friedman
- Fionavar Tapestry by Guy Gavriel Kay
- Deed of Paksenarrion by Elizabeth Moon
Nominations will remain open until the Ides of March.
The first round of polls will whittle the nominations down to two or three (depending on how close the voting is) for the final deciding vote towards the end of March. You must be a member of the group to vote (and the group will close to new members once the first poll is open for voting).
