Does this reviewer's comment scare you, Scott? posted 30 Nov 2004, 12:11 by Aldarion, Sorcerer-of-Rank

From a Nov. 29th comment on Amazon in regards to TWP: [i:2gabxgnf]Very ambitious scale for this particular novel. Reminds me quite a bit of Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth novels with a bit more character development.[/i:2gabxgnf] view post

LOL! I liked it better when they wanted to burn it... :roll: view post

Could be worse. The reviewer could have said that the story reminded him of Robert Jordan's characterization skills in the last few WoT books ;) view post

At some point you're going to have to start calling your forum the 'Other (Better) Fantasy' forum... :wink: view post

That, or maybe the BEM show (Bakker, Erikson, and Martin) ;) That reminds me, I forgot to send you a link to a Quickpoll we ran Thanksgiving weekend about what we were most thankful for this past year. The choices were rather amusing. Here's a copy of the titles: [i:1bb5izy0]Goodkind announcing end to SoT soon (11.28%) Jordan announcing "Two more books!" (20.35%) Martin to finish AFFC before Bush leaves (27.43%) Shatner starring in new TV series, CD (4.87%) Firefly has been pushed back 5 months (0.88%) Erikson still not fat, no beard in sight (12.83%) Bakker doesn't need pimp cane at signing (2.88%) Bonaduce working hard for his money (0.88%) Roast goat (4.20%) Dude... isn't it Christmas time already? (14.38%)[/i:1bb5izy0] You [i:1bb5izy0]almost[/i:1bb5izy0] were more popular than roast goat, but the goat wins in a shocking upset. Kinda puts things in (silly) perspective, yes? :D And before you ask, the comments about you and Erikson were digs at Martin and Jordan's big bellies and bushy beard, as well as the pimp cane Jordan poses with in the photo that goes with his later books :P view post

Hell, even I voted for the goat. Think of their powers of digestion. Simply amazing... view post

:D Power the power of the goat! Ah, that's a nice one. Too bad I'm stuck with a college nickname of The Lord of the Llamas, after I jokingly closed an email many years ago by quoting the Sesame Street song, "Me and My Llama" and then saying that I guess I'd just be their lord or something :P view post
