Tom, you need to update your template. The poll wasn't open for five days and the poll close date doesn't show up in the post unless you log on.

Please, not another Russian work!


But we're a long way from November.


You know my first instinct was to line up a nomination that was not only Russian but also a sci-fi novel. Anyone heard of Roadside Picnic?

I would have been stoned to death.

So I need to come up with something different.

This category could throw up some interesting works. For instance, there are a number of works written originally in the Irish Language such as An t-Oileánach {The Islandman} by Tomás Ó Criomhthain {Tomas O'Crohan--1856–1937} which is a masterpiece--and well translated by Robin Flower who frequently visited The Great Blasket Islands and was a good friend of Ó Criomhthain.
