Me too, but it saddens / maddens me to have nothing from Olaf Stapledon, R. A. Lafferty or Clifford Simak in the "top" 100 to choose from!!!

Simak is in there for "Way Station."

Lots of my favorites missing, too. I voted in the original balloting, and some of the ones I voted for are there. My favorite Simak's missing, but I did vote for Way Station this time.

Rick Ollerman: Thanks! My aged eyes must have glazed over toward the end of the list. I feel 1/3 better about the list now 8-)

You know, they had Zelazny's "Lord of Light" on there so I can forgive a lot. I'd much rather see a Robert Charles Wilson included instead of all the Neal Stephenson stuff, but again:

"His followers called him Mahasmatman and said he was a god. He preferred to drop the Maha- and the -atman, however, and called himself Sam. He never claimed to be a god. But then, he never claimed not to be...."

So they got at least one right, IMO.

I agree.
