The Winner of the 2014 Undead Poll Is…
So was this year’s Undead Winner a dark horse? Did a scientist come along and cause his or her favorite to win? Or did perhaps a certain famous conservative radio commentator-and-now-best-selling-children’s-author get his followers to vote often and well for his favorite? (Sorry, couldn’t resist.) Nope, not to worry. This year’s winner started out in front and pretty much stayed there ending up with a hefty 25.5% of the final vote. Coming in second was Rose Under Fire with Doll Bones rounding out at third. Close behind these top three were Far Far Away, True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp, All the Truth That’s in Me, and Flora & Ulysses. And, so here you are, the 2014 winner of the Undead Poll is….
Congratulations, Eleanor & Park!
