Yep, it’s that time of year again–the silly season–and BSC is taking advantage with the ole book tourney. Does it make any sense? No. That’s what makes it fun?
Tomorrow, among others, they’ve got my Finch going up against Ajvaz’s The Other City–a book only me and three other people seemed to know about last year. Go vote early and often–for the book you think, if personified as a human being, would beat the living crap out of the other book-as-person.
Me, I think of Finch the Book as being a little like the Giant-made-of-people in Barker’s “In the Hills, the Cities”: huge and rotting and enormous and as likely to come crashing to earth as not.
Seriously, though, I don’t care who you vote for–I’m more interested in anything that highlights good books. The Ajvaz is a very good book.
