Steven Erikson missed the boat on this one: posted 27 April 2006 in Literature DiscussionSteven Erikson missed the boat on this one: by StegoKing, Candidate

Steven Erikson was a huge proponent of The Darkness That Comes Before, and indeed all of Bakkers work, and so when he got behind In The Eye of Heaven by David Keck in a similar manner, I raced to my local bookstore to snatch it up.

What a dissapointment. I guess one out of two isn't so bad, but I have to wonder what Erikson was thinking. Perhaps they're old friends. Perhaps Erikson owes Keck some money.

ITEoH is one of the worst books I have ever read in any genre. I have a full review blasting it [url=http://speculativereviews.blogspot.com/:3mhnnm0g]here,[/url:3mhnnm0g] if anyone is interested. view post

Yea, they get stuff to review all the time, but they aren't always willing to provide a review for publication. Erickson has actually said he will only give a review for the cover/press if the book does something for him, otherwise if he thinks it is just more of the same he won't bother. He said in an interview that he really liked Keck's work so it's probably just a matter of differing opinion. I haven't read it so I don't know <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post
