Please vote YES to no more than 12 options, for those categories which you would almost assuredly participate in.
Please vote NO to those categories you are not interested in and would very likely not partake of.
Please vote UNDECIDED to those categories you have no strong feelings about, and may or may not join as your fancy strikes (these votes will be considered, with less weight).

You are welcome to change your votes up until the closing date.
Which will be... let's go with, Nov 15, half a month. It can be extended if need be.

Votes are now all up! You can discuss and try to encourage/discourage votes at your whim. ;P

Okay, so we are set?

And a question. Is Joe Hill part of King and Family? I hate King, but I haven't tried Joe Hill but do own a book or two of his.

Editat: nov. 16, 2015, 11:39am

>24 majkia: Yes, Joe Hill is his son. There is also Owen King, his other son, although I don't think he writes horror. And Tabitha King has published.

ETA Oh, and Owen's wife, Kelly Braffet looks like she writes thrillers.

I amended the voting posts to reflect the results. Yeses were +1, nos were -1, undecideds were +.5. The one case of a tie (amongst 3) for the last place winner was selected by the highest yes votes.

New thread has been put up for the planning stage, go check it out!
