I gives points for completing stuff.
And nothing in Rothfuss, as much as I enjoyed his (only) two books, beats “Going Postal” and “The Wee Free Men”.

I'm going Pratchett simply because I have read him and liked the little I've read.
Slow and steady wins the race.

No one holds a candle to Sir Terry!
It's the silence that scares me. It’s the blank page on which I can write my own fears.

This contest looks like it may go the same way the last one did with Pratchett taking out the crown again, but he deserves it.
I will expand your TBR pile.

Gosh you're right, it seems it's going to mirror the Best Series final! :o
Even the semi-finals, although 3 years ago we had George RR Martin there with ASOIAF, and here now we have Rothfuss.

Goes to show how loved the authors and their works are, and how timeless.
