Well this isn't SF, it's Epic Fantasy that strives to feel real. It is an overtly fantastic world, but it is meant to feel like real history, much in the way Tolkien attempted with the Lord of the Rings... except this is Lord of the Rings on a really twisted and scary trip so to speak <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

The FF9 comparisons are interesting, but I think that the world Bakker has given us is much, much more sophisticated and metaphysically complex. After all Scott is a philosopher as well as an author, and his world is built upon some pretty heavy philosophical ideas. view post
