I was going to post some more detailed comments, but I decided I don't want to rag on any individual people or books. But Holy FSM, could this list make any less sense?

I had a similar reaction (though I have no idea what FSM stands for). And what's up with the authors who voted for their own books?

FSM.

And I suspect nobody told the authors their votes would be made public!

FSM - who knew??? Here I thought it was a clever Batman & Robin reference, but this is *much*, *MUCH* better. Must get T-shirt. Thanks Ernest!

I liked it better as a corrupted Batman reference. Foo.

The books or the selected authors?

I guess I didn't scrutinize the list of authors too much. Seems like a pretty random assortment, too.
