I made a facebook group called The Prince of Nothing. Anyone on facebook and want to join? view post

As an English Grad student I am very familiar with this work. In fact, it is my message stamp! (Look down.) John Milton kicks ass. view post


Harold Lamb posted 04 Jan 2007, 23:01 in Literature DiscussionHarold Lamb by borfalkian, Candidate

R. Scott Bakker mentioned Harold Lamb in one of his interviews and now I am a Harold Lamb freak. His books rock and I totally see how they could be inpirational, especially "The Crusades: Iron Men and Saints". Lamb's stuff is mostly out of print though, so you have to go digging through used bookstores. view post

Few seem to know of it for some strange reason. view post

Yeah, I bought it on Amazon, and then ended up buying a whole slew of Lamb stuff off of abe-books. There is a guy who is slowly re-publishing Lamb's adventure fiction as well, through the University of Nebraska's Bison Press. It's good stuff and I can't believe Lamb has been so forgotten by most. view post

Of course. Mr. Bakker has a PhD. You can read his dissertation "brief" on the web if you have access to a university library's information network...or you can buy it through one of the sites that sell dissertation. I think he said he went to Vanderbilt in one of his interviews. Be prepared for dense philosophy. Academic writing is not at all like prose fiction. view post


posted 10 Jan 2007, 15:01 in Literature DiscussionOk so I feel like ive read every good author in existence. by borfalkian, Candidate

Another Canadian author is Guy Gavriel Kay who wrote "The Fionavar Tapestry". Aside from that is the obvious solution of widening one's reading scope beyond the realm of tradisional fantasy novels. "Fantasy" is a great genre, but there are many many more authors "in existence" who are good in their own rights. view post

I already made one... view post


posted 20 Jan 2007, 12:01 in Literature DiscussionA Song of Ice and Fire to Become TV Series by borfalkian, Candidate

Jordan is way faster than Martin. Jordon pounds out mediocre narration at a high rate. I think he is of the type of writer that writes a word quota per day. view post

Try march of Muskovy, or his Cossack stories. His style is very narrative based and sweeping. view post
