Um, just wanted to point out that on the TOB page it lists "Homeland by Mark Sarvas" as the winner.

venkmann, you're still bitter that neil gaiman got knocked out in the first round. the conflict-of-interest question is weird. why would they let that happen? on the other hand - and this is no knock on the tournament of books (which i like a lot, in spirit) - it's not as if winning the rooster will instigate a hollywood bidding war for the rights.

Hey, Bridget -- I think Steve Almond wrote one, too. ;-)

wrote a pretty illuminating piece on Mr. Sarvas for Salon.com a while ago. What is it with Sarvas -- he always uses teh royal "we." drives me crazy. This Tournament is driving me a little crazy too. Very hipster.

Bad news for Georgie. According to Mark Sarvas's
is "a wicked, heartfelt delight, and you???ll read it in a sitting if you have an ounce of soul." No soul for Georgie!! Is this the same Mark Sarvas who gushes about
? It certainly must be the very same one who writes, in the TOB
, "It turns out my agent and I are looking to option some of Sam Lipsyte's work." Well, no conflict of interest there! I like how it "turns out" he and his agent are trying to option Lipsyte's work -- as if Sarvas had no idea he was going to do this until the Magical Super Optioning Fairy appeared to him and declared, "Ye shall attempt to option Sam Lipsyte's work!" Well, who can argue with the Magical Super Optioning Fairy?!
