Faelcind - Absolutely in agreement with you. To draw an analogy to sci-fi and fantasy (and bring it round to the theme of this particular board), Tolkein spawned generations of derivative work which, frankly, became progressively formulaic and unimaginative. Too bad for readers, like us, and all the more reason to applaud Scott Bakker for putting some originals twists and ideas in a (nearly) exhausted genre. Or others like Guy Gavriel Kay who write so feelingly of human experience that old stories become new and fresh again. view post
