    It's time for another tournament. The competitors: novels. In order to avoid suffering the fate of the last movie tournament, you may nominate a series, saga, cycle, duology, or trilogy (and so forth) as a single entry. Nominations for standalone novels are still welcome, and any nominations for a novel that is part of a series will be counted as a nomination for the series. The rules are the same usual:

  2. Maximum of four novel or series nominations per post, with no back-to-back (or back-to-back-to-back) posts.

  3. Star Wars novels had their own tournament, and are all off-limits for this one.

  4. Note that nominations will not be counted more than once for each novel or series, so there's no need to name one that's already been nominated. Also, please provide links to descriptions of the novels and series you nominate (using Wikipedia if possible) in order to expedite the process.
