    I agree entirely...Dune remains one of my favourite books....but once again I thought every one would have read it already!

    I mentioned Dune in case the members of the group maybe never got around to reading it. Like me. :)

    We have plans to start the voting now? Just wondering.

    Well, I'd still like to see this go through. Since GeekDavid hasn't been around in a bit and he was the one that initiated this, let's say let's wait another week. After that, perhaps we can start the voting?

    Sorry if I'm being impatient, but I just think this is a good idea and I want to keep it fresh in people's minds.

    Here are the novels nominated so far:

    Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff
    Only in Death by Dan Abnett (Warhammer 40K)
    Clockwork Angels by Kevin J. Anderson
    Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence
    The Black Company by Glen Cook (I think this is what is being nominated?)
    Into the Darkness by Harry Turtledove
    The Iron Dragon's Daughter by Michael Swanwick
    Empire of the East by Fred Saberhagen
    Dune by Frank Herbert
    Seduction of a Wanton Dreamer by Richard Beeson

    Not sure if all of these fit the requirements of including magic and technology working in tandem that GeekDavid put forth originally, so we might want to consider that before going forward. We might also want to limit nominations to one or two per month as well?

    Anyway, perhaps GeekDavid will return this week or next week and set up the next phase.

    Hey guys, I noticed the book hasn't been chosen yet. Is the February timeline still in effect to have it read? I'd like to join the reading group. I'm not very familiar with the books up for consideration, but I'd like some exposure to maybe books I hadn't considered reading before.
