Hi Akrasi. The stories are nested within a greater narrative. What I mean is that each trilogy (as opposed to each book within the trilogy) will have a complete story to tell. At the same time, each trilogy will also tell part of a much, much larger story. Though most everything happens within Earwa, so things do spill in from the outside. I actually think 'global world-building' is something of a mistake in creating fantasy worlds. One of the primary features of ancient understandings of the world, I think, is the incompleteness of that understanding. This is one of the things Tolkien does so well - even in the name 'Middle-earth': he conjures the sense of civilization encircled by mystery and darkness. view post
