Poll results, new poll up

Seems somebody (or rather a handful of people, based on the Sitemeter records) decided to make sure that a dark horse entry overtook the early leaders in the last 1/10 mile.  Here are the results for the short fiction poll:

Cordwainer Smith, The Rediscovery of Man
  25 (21%)
Michael Moorock: Elric: The Stealer of Souls (reissue)
  19 (16%)
Angela Carter, Burning Your Boats
  9 (7%)
Gene Wolfe, The Best of Gene Wolfe
  25 (21%)
Junot Díaz, Drown
  36 (30%)
Lou Anders (ed.), Fast Forward 2
  4 (3%)

I guess it'll stand...helps that I really loved that collection and did want to comment on it later this year after a possible re-read. Now for the book poll:

George MacDonald, Lilith
  11 (12%)
John Crowley, Aegypt/The Solitudes
  18 (20%)
Michael Moorcock, Byzantium Endures (Pyat I)
  12 (13%)
Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities
  29 (32%)
Orhan Pamuk, My Name is Red
  10 (11%)
Paul Auster, The New York Trilogy
  8 (9%)

Very strong group here and any of the three would have been a delight to re-read/review, but Calvino it is!

Hope this new poll doesn't encourage any ballot stuffing, not that I'm going to list a book I'd hate to review.
