Voted! I also added the Abject God by the way. It's somewhere near the bottom of the list now, but still.
I really don't understand some additions to this list. There's lots of stuff there for example by Hobbs which no one in his/her right mind would qualify as Grimdark. Numerous other examples abound. Anyways, the top spots are pretty much all Grimdark or Grimdark-ish (and proto-Grimdark).
I think we should at leats be able to pushSteel, Blood & Fire to place 50, where it will stand besides some of the Black Company books. It only needs about 12 votes for that (we're at 7 now).
Wow. This guy gets it. The big names have nothing on you. You're one of them.
"As for the writing itself, it was equal to anything being put out by traditionally published grimdark writers. In fact, Allan Batchelder surpasses many a dark fantasy writer, especially in his ability to tell an entertaining story with a fluid plot and non-stop character development."
Way to go Allan. About time. If the reviewers would just read it. Another big step forward.
