Damn... I might end up abstaining on this one.
Slow and steady wins the race.

Joe's great, but Scott created Locke and Camorr.
I will expand your TBR pile.

I don't want to abstain as I've read both, but after 7 Joe books and just 2 from Scott, I have to go with Joe.

Why haven’t you read the third one from  Scott?

Yeah, but then he probably also steals my wallet and, for some reason, my favourite armchair.

I mean, I did vote for Scott, because however much I appreciate Joe's work, it's not the wild love I have for the Gentleman Bastard. But still.

I presume because they needed a comfy armchair at their lair. I, too was torn, but cast my vote for Scott, much for the same reasons as you.
