Meme: Best review post according to reviewers

John Ottinger's latest invention (at Grasping for the Wind) - he seems to be good at designing intelligent memes: "Find a favorite book, movie, or videogame review (Science fiction and fantasy related) that you have written, no matter where it was posted, and add it to the following list. Make sure to repost the whole list, because in doing so, we accumulate what the reviewers themselves think is their best work, and give each other some linkages, increasing everyone's rankings."

"Use the format of [Blog /Website Name] - [Book Name in CAPS w/ Link] by [Book Author Name]".
