As in past rounds, any story that gets more "No" than "Yes" votes won't make the cut; otherwise they'll be prioritized according to net-yes-minus-no, and the final list will be in OPD sequence. Ties will be broken in favor of author and period variety.
To propose a story for voting, place the title and author between HTML-style angle-bracket tags. The open tag says vote (in brackets); the close tag says /vote (ditto). Multiple polls seem to need multiple posts. If you put the name of the author in double square brackets, it will make it a linked "touchstone" for the LT database, and first publication dates of nominated stories are appreciated. Also welcome are remarks about the story, the author, and your nomination motives, and/or a link to an online version.
You can see a sortable list of all previous discussions here. A persistent brainstorming thread is here. Nominations repeating old discussions will be disqualified, but revival of dormant discussion threads is always welcome. "That is not dead which can eternal lie," etc.
VOTING is scheduled to END on the Spring Equinox: Thursday, March 19.
Voteu: H. P. Lovecraft, "Facts Concerning the Late Arthur Jermyn and His Family" (1920)
Voteu: Duane W. Rimel & H. P. Lovecraft, "The Tree on the Hill" (1934)
Any chance of you joining in the discussions again next quarter? Your contributions have been missed.
I'm actually hoping to join later today; I haven't finished reading the story yet, though. I know my "attendance" has been patchy this year.
My own participation has been less frequent since 2019, but it may be useful to know that's entirely up to changes in my homelife schedule. Nothing about LT or DEEP ONES that prompted this, so I've resolved to not let it worry me and simply try to participate as much as I can. It's part of why I like the format here: the asynchronous discussion allows me to continue participating, even if not as close to the start of a story's discussion. In the past, going through offline schedule changes pretty much spelled doom for other book clubs I've been involved in, but that's not necessary here.
Pretty much the same here. I can usually get the weekly discussion posts up and ready on Fridays. I'll post a few Spring nominations shortly.
Voteu: "The Detective of Dreams" by Gene Wolfe (1980)
Voteu: "Mrs Midnight" by Reggie Oliver (2011)
Does not seem to be (legally) available online, but the Tartarus Press volume with this as the title story is not too expensive.
Voteu: "The Truth About Pickman" by Brian Stableford (2010)
Voteu: "The Bells of Horror" by Henry Kuttner (1939)
There's an online version (of dubious legality) at http://maxima-library.org/knigi/knigi/b/41503?format=read
It concerns "the strange affair of the lost bells of Mission San Xavier" in California.
