and i'm not entirely sure how i feel about it.

i think i'm more sad that it's finished and i can;t read it anymore. this is the first book(s) that i've truly fallen in love with the characters. they are so like real people to me, that i just want to know more, i want to know everything that heppens to them for the rest of their lives.

i miss them already. view post

If the two of you haven't read Erickson's work I highly recommend the Malazan book of the Fallen series beginning with Gardens of the Moon. He's another epic fantasy author and a fellow Canadian. His background is in archeology and as such his world has a real feeling of depth (the history often spans 100,000 years or more of ancient and fallen civilizations. The world is very &quot;layered&quot; in that sense.) It is primarily a militaristic series sort of like the Black Company series (but better), fairly dark and gritty but not as dark as Scott's stuff. Anyway it's an excellent read, 5 books out currently with the 6th coming out in Canada next month. view post

I would highly recommend Erikson's series. It is an incredible read. Very detailed and complex and still Erikson hasn't revealed most of his world. Book 6 &quot;The Bonehunters&quot; comes out in Canada on April 25th. Those lucky to live in the UK and Europe have been reading it since March 1st.

I actually learned about Erikson and Bakker through a newspaper ad with Erikson praising Bakker. view post

Edge, pick up the first too, the third or fourth is just coming out in the US soon. The publishing schedules should be synced up by book 7 I think. (The UK is ahead of Canada...they already have Book 6) and order the rest online from Chapters.ca or Amazon.ca if you like them.

Gierra, Although I'm a fellow Torontonian I've only lived here since September and so haven't been to Bakka-Pheonix, but since they are the pre-eminent SF&amp;F retailer in Canada and Erickson is Canadian I should think they do. view post

For the record, it's easy to obtain books available only in Europe, just use Amazon.uk. After I read &quot;Gardens of the Moon&quot; for the first time and was completely blown away by it, I was absolutely astounded to discover that Erikson, an author I was unfamiliar with, had already had five complete Malazan books published in the UK - in paperback no less! I ordered them all, and I'm happy to say that every book in the Malazan series is as good or better than GoTM. Easily worth the shipping costs. I'm waiting right now for a relative to get back from England with a copy of &quot;The Bonehunters&quot; for me.

The publishing industry is totally screwed up in the USA. There are just so many really deserving books that either don't get published here at all, or are only published much later - sometimes many years later - than in the UK. view post

Yea, I've been considering ordering the Bonehunters from Amazon.uk but I really don't have the time to devote to it right now, and it IS more expensive with the shipping and handling. Almost as much for the paperback as if I wait and get the trade paperback or hardcover here in Canada in a little over a month. view post
