A Message From Stephen: Best Novel of All Time

Posted: August 23rd, 2012 9:58:41 am

Dear Constant Readers: This is fun, if you're into "bracketology," or even if you're not. If you go to Best Novels of All Time on the Huffington Post, you'll see a series of face-offs (To Kill a Mockingbird versus The Great Gatsby, for instance). I urge you not only to vote, but to use Twitter and Facebook to spread the word.

BUT.

Uncle Stevie says YOU MUST NOT VOTE FOR A BOOK YOU HAVEN'T READ. Which was why I couldn't vote for Moby Dick. Everyone says it's great and blah-blah-blah, but I drown in whale-oil every time I try it. My bad, people, I admit it. So…you may have to leave some brackets entirely blank. But this way it's fair.

And no, you can't vote for one of my books, 'cause I didn't make the cut. Still…happy voting, and spread the word. I'm guessing the champ might be Great Expectations, but I've been wrong before. Once in 1972, and once…mmm…no, that time I was right.

Vote! It's a great warm-up for November!
