    Okay! Gwendy's Button Box is out and Sleeping Beauties is out. We've got more fuel for the fire.

    Last Year's competition went down and was fairly popular. I'm hoping the same for this one.

    Last year's game - Stephen King book popularity contest | The StephenKing.com Message Board

    Last Year winner: The Stand


    Rules for newcomers and for folks who forgot - I'll list two works by King or a member of the King family and the first to five votes wins over the other. We will do it tournament style with rounds and the last thing standing by Stephen King will be the winner. Hopefully, we have enough people for this and also I use the word 'thing' because we aren't just going by books. You should judge all pieces listed based on the book first and foremost but if you haven't read the book you have permission to use the movie or miniseries in its place while voting. I'd of usually just made it the book but King has a large LARGE body of work and wanted everyone included who could be even you hadn't read the book.

    Changes from last year - Notice I said, King or King family ;;D (You may find more than Stephen's work in this tourney) - also, DT will be viewed as one book in this go around - unless any objections?

    osnafrank, your post was blank, did you mean to say something or were just saying you hadn't read Gwendy either by pulling up my comment?
