Ok...

If whomever voted for Deed wants to change their vote... let me know and I will change it.

I will trust that you are actually the one that did the vote. I forgot to tell it to make votes public and have no way to change that option.

I voted for His Magesty's Dragon as the other ones I would like to read I've actually read already (Game of Thrones is AMAZING). So I'd rather read and discuss a book I haven't read but heard many great things about. Plus, huge bonus for being legally free!

I've voted in The Sheepfarmer's Daughter

BTW, you can get it for free in Suvudu's Free Library: http://www.suvudu.com/freelibrary/#download_sheepfarmer

Deed of Paksenarrion
1. The Sheepfarmer's Daughter (1988)
2. Divided Allegiance (1988)
3. Oath of Gold (1988)
The Deed of Paksenarrion (omnibus) (1992)
Sigh. Didn't we already discuss it in the nominations thread?



The first book is in the Baen Free Library or you can buy the trilogy for $6 from Webscription. The whole trilogy is no longer than LotR and has been sold as one volume for over a decade.

Because it's from Subterranean Press. They do HC special editions for collectors.

That particular book is sold out at the publisher. They printed...
Limited: 500 signed numbered copies
Lettered: 52 signed deluxe bound copies, housed in a custom traycase, with art not in the Limited Edition

hi , first post for mi here , had to post after seeing that paks is almost taken out.

"The Deed of Paksenarrion" is a really good trilogy and shouldnt be miss. its unique in its own way in the way its written , different from other types of fantasy books.

the first book's free and the whole trilogy's is cheap , go for it !

Well, I could not propose any book, but I just voted for the Princess Bride, I have read it twice and it's so funny and delicious... I didn't mind to re-read again.
