The winner, by one vote, is Sly Mongoose by Tobias S. Buckell. I'm happy about that choice (although I'd likely say that for any choice you all made), because I love Buckell's work and have been looking forward to this book for a while. So after I finish the book I'm on, I'm going to that book.
Now, to a new poll to choose the next book I read after Sly Mongoose. I used a new poll program for the poll. If you cannot see the poll, please leave a comment here.
Edit: The direct link to the poll is here.
Thanks and good luck voting.
(Edit: Sorry, for some reason this didn't get posting, but it is now.)
