I don't get it why does it to be "fantasy" ? We voted before on Reality vs Fantasy, but no one said back then it will be fantasy like Dwarfes and Witches or Harry Potter. Even Sci-Fi is going to be mixed with fantasy?! In which of the upper categories get space ships, lasers and EMP bombs? If You're gonna mix that with fantasy, this thread is wrong from the start.

I disagree. Fantasy has many different categories to it. In the first poll, the question was reality versus fantasy. As fantasy won that poll, we now have to decide which style of fantasy should be used.

This part is just examples of what can be done. Not what will be done. You have miss read what Jane asked for. She wanted examples of literature so some of the players who may not be acquainted with fantasy would understand a lot easier what each one does.
Science fiction can come in to main parts, Star Wars is purely science fiction all the way, Star Trek has elements of science fact about it. But both are science fantasy.
Many of the books and stories listed will not sit into one category alone.

Unfortunately it is misleading. I notice the votes for High Fantasy have pulled ahead again since you inserted "Lord of the Lings", but we are obviously not going to be making an LOTR map.

The categories were clear enough as they were, they didn't need "examples" which just serve to prejudice the vote.

The votes are and have been pretty close all along. Still only Tuesday and 5 days to go. But when you consider that low fantasy has game of thrones, another map that has been asked for countless times, even attempted to be made a few times as well, that only has two votes. So I do not see them being overly influential in the voting. With them now being on the previous page, I have not removed the examples but placed it into a spoiler to make them less noticeable. Seems a pretty good compromise.

Nice collection. I have read most of these, and will likely fill in the rest (apart from Twilight -- holds no appeal at all).

Science fantasy was a toss up between A wrinkle in the skin and Starship Troopers. Both are fantastic books and probably rank in my best books of all time list.
