The difference was 1 vote, but Pancake advances. So far advancing is Larry Brown's Big Bad Love, both Dorothy Allison's Bastard out of Carolina and David Joy's The Weight of This World, and now Pancake. The next round 1 vote will be posted later today.

Donald Ray Pollock has a healthy lead over Breece D'J Pancake. With 21 hours left in the vote though, still any writer's game.

The overlap of fiction and pro-wrestling isn't huge, so I love to find it when I can. Go check out the story "Getting Ready" by Michael Chin at and the rest of the stories on their "Jobbers" page.

The last one was 50-50 so we'll have to advance Dorothy Allison and David Joy to the next round. Here's a damned hard one, but you only get to pick one. .
