Welcome to Round Four of A Game of Four Categories. After collecting 300 entries, I have broken the total down into 15 qualifying rounds, each having 20 works. For each round, the 4 works having the highest scores will advance to the Semi-Finals.

Rules of the Road:

1. You may vote once daily.

2. When you vote, you will have 10 points to distribute as you wish except that no work may receive more than 6 points.

3. The Half-Time Adjustment is in play. With the first work to garner 50 points, the 8 with the lowest scores will be eliminated from the game; this number could rise if there are ties toward the bottom of the board.

4. Qualifying Round Four ends with the first work to reach 100 points.
