Each year in the tournament, 16 works of fiction battle each other in daily contests to win that vaunted literary prize, The Rooster. Along the way, victors advance and losers fall. But there’s a twist. During the semifinal match, called the Zombie Round, two books that were previously ousted—yet deemed the most popular by this very poll—are resurrected from the dead to fight the would-be finalists.
So, which one of our finalists was your blue-eyed title from 2012? Let us know by next Wednesday, and help give your favorite book an extra shot at reaching the championship.
Thanks again, and spread the word! We’ll see you in March.
