Well, it is a little bit late, but I've finally tallied the results of our annual Best Of poll. I’d like to thank all of our members for participating, as well as those folks who joined and by posting in the poll. For the record I’ll be using “points” and “votes” to refer to the books on and off the list. “Votes” refers to each appearance on a person’s ballot, or post. Points are the rankings attributed to each book by virtue of where the poster placed them on their list.
So without further adeiu, here are the results:

1. The Warrior Prophet by R. Scott Bakker, with nearly 20 more points than the second place book...(Nice going Scott!)
2. A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin

The rest of the top vote-getters looks like this:
3. Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman
4. The Wizard Knight by Gene Wolfe.*
5. Shaman's Crossing by Robin Hobb
6. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
7. Knife of Dreams by Robert Jordan
8. Spin by Robert Charles Wilson
9. Olympos by Dan Simmons
10. Memories of Ice by Steven Erikson

Some additional things to consider

It may not come as a surprise the two books receiving most first place votes were Scott Bakker's The Warrior Prophet and Martin's A Feast for Crows.

Just under the radar knocking on #10’s door were the following books, all tied with the same number of votes:

The Carpet Makers
Vellum
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell


The book with the most total votes (not points) was actually A Feast for Crows. The book with the least amount of votes in the top 10: Memories of Ice – only three people actually voted for the book, but they all ranked # 1 or #2.

The three books with the most votes not in the top 10 were Judas Unchained by Peter F. Hamilton, Elantris by Brandon Sanderson, and Veniss Underground by Jeff VanderMeer, each with four votes.

About 80 total books were put in the “ballots,” so to speak, so the nominating field was fairly wide.

*I decided to add all the votes for The Wizard and The Knight along with those who voted for the book as a single book together. The total tally for The WizardKnight was 15, The Knight – 20, and The Wizard – 14. If you want to remove my calculations for TWK then the list looks something like this:

1. The Warrior Prophet by R. Scott Bakker
2. A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin
3. Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman
4. Shaman's Crossing by Robin Hobb
5. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
6. Knife of Dreams by Robert Jordan
7. Spin by Robert Charles Wilson
8. Olympos by Dan Simmons
9. Memories of Ice by Steven Erikson & The Knight by Gene Wolfe
10. Vellum by Hal Duncan, The Carpet Makers & JS&MN
