6th Annual Book Tournament Round 1 – Westeros Bracket
BSC’s book tournament list marches on, and we finally come to the final bracket of Round 1, Westeros Bracket. Some of our champions have provided fighting words to sway those of you who are undecided, in case their words might carry more weight than their title….
1. A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin vs. 16. Prospero Regained by L. Jagi Lamplighter
Prospero Regained: “Neil Gaiman meets C.S. Lewis or, for an American equivalent, Roger Zelazny meets Lloyd Alexander…Miranda’s family is lost in Hell. Can she find her siblings and rescue her father before midnight on Twelfth Night–when the Dread Magician Prospero is to be executed? The stunning climax to this modern sequel to Shakespeare’s classic The Tempest.”
2. Among Others by Jo Walton vs. 15. Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel
Dearly Departed: “Just because you’re dead doesn’t mean you can’t steal an airship, save the world, and get the girl. Well, once she stops pointing that shotgun at your head.”
3. The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson vs. 14. The Hammer by K.J. Parker
4. The Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare vs. 13. The Doctor and the Kid by Mike Resnick
5. Deathless by Catherynne M. Valente vs. 12. The God’s War by Kameron Hurley
6. Ready Player 1 by Ernest Cline vs. 11. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
7. Under Witch Aura by Maria E. Schneider vs. 10. The Diviner by Melanie Rawn
Under Witch Aura: “Where do you hide when an ill wind knows your name?”
8. Ganymede by Cherie Priest vs. 9. Scholar by L.E. Modesitt, Jr.
Scholar: Quaeryt is a scholar, an imager, and an orphan in a world that fears and kills imagers and despises scholars… Welcome to Lydar, and the Wars of Consolidation!
Polls stay open through March 15, with results announced the 16th. And now, champions…to arms!
