I'll use my last nomination on Twenty-Six And One And Other Stories, and with that nominations are now closed.

The final nominations are:

The short stories of Saki [4]
The Remains Of The Day by Kazuo Ishiguro [3]
Twenty-Six And One And Other Stories by Maxim Gorky [4]
The Last Temptation Of Christ by Nicos Kazantzakis [1]
The Daughter Of Time by Josephine Tey [4]
The Stranger by Albert Camus [3]
The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark [4]
Death In Venice by Thomas Mann [2]

Here's a part of what I wrote previously:

Quote:
....If no nominees make it to five nominations, then the nominees with the most nominations will be our de facto nominees for the vote.....
So, we will have four de facto official nominees (that received four nominations each) going into the poll:

-The short stories of Saki
-The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie
-The Daughter Of Time
-Twenty-Six And One And Other Stories

The poll will be up later today.

I'm sorry, I was travelling, and waiting to see if somebody really nominated Lolita after the other vote closed to second it

I guess it'll be a vote rather than a nomination!

I'll definitely third Death in Venice. Studied it a long time ago and would love to re-read and discuss again.

Oh - oops. Missed that at the end. I'll have to look into those that made it as I don't know any of them.

Ok, Gorky and Saki are readily available to me so I'll vote for one or the other.

In the initial post of the vote thread, I've made spoilers for each of them that give information, so it's all in one place if that helps.
