Erikson Neophyte posted 26 June 2008 in Literature DiscussionErikson Neophyte by anor277, Didact

Just wanted to add that Return of the Crimson Guard by Ian Cameron Esslemont has now been published and will be shortly available from Amazon. (The current hardback edition by a small UK publisher is riddled with proofing errors and a bit pricey.) Both Esslemont and Erikson share (and co-conceived) the world that is depicted in the Malazan novels, and the new novel details events in Quon Tali after Erikson's Reaper's Gale, and covers the return (duh!) of that infamous mercenary company that opposed Kellanved 100 years previously to their homeland. Further novels by ICE will include places that Erikson has so far ignored (i.e. Assail).

One thing I liked about Esslemont's novel was that it explained straight off (or at least attempted to explain) things that Erikson should have explained 25,000 words ago (warrens, decks of dragons, we're still ignorant of ascendancy). view post
