Terry Needs Your Votes.

Postby Tonyblack » Sat Sep 27, 2008 6:06 pm

I saw this on another site and I'm sure Toothy won't mind me posting it here.

Toothy wrote:I've been alerted to the Fantasy Book Review site at http://www.fantasybookreview.co.uk/Terr ... raphy.html where there is a poll on the topic: Who is (or will be) the greatest fantasy author of all time?

TP is some way off the top yet which is alarming, especially as he's behind JK Rowling at the moment!!! :shock: Please go and give him your vote - they won't allow you to vote more than once mind... :(


This was the score after I'd voted - come on guys, we have to beat Rowling at least! :D
