Literary March Madness Round 1 - Part 5

OK! Mushing right into the Third Region of our bracket, we are confronted with several intriguing new match-ups. So far, no #16 has received even a single vote against a #1; will Louise Erdrich (Love Medicine) reverse that trend against James Joyce (Ulysses)? Terry Pratchett earned an upset in the first round - will his co-author of Good Omens, Neil Gaiman, do likewise against Somerset Maugham (Of Human Bondage)? Lots of excitement still to come!

In other news, polls have officially closed on our first batch of matches. No upsets so far: #1 Jane Austen, #8 Emily Bronte, #4 Mikhail Bulgakov, and #5 Willa Cather have all secured victories and will advance to the second rounds.

Keep voting! Tell your friends to vote! Vote early, vote often!
