More about Erikson books... posted 04 June 2005 in Off-Topic DiscussionMore about Erikson books... by Kidruhil Lancer, Auditor

Q: "How would you compare your writing style to that of Steve's?"

ICE says "Oh man – this is the big thing I’ve been dreading the most. Firstly, let me say that in my opinion (unbiased as it is) there is no one writing today in fantasy who can be compared to Steve. Period. It was his
undeniable talent that pushed Malaz through all the barriers that stood
in its way and made it real. "

Obviously this guy hasn't read any of Scott's books. While the Malazen books are unquestionably more complex and on a larger scale than PoN, Mr Bakker is still a better writer than Mr. Erikson. Granted I haven't read books 3 and 4 of Erikson's series... but so far Deadhouse Gates is the only one that can compare to TDtCB or WP for style, ability, and pacing. view post
