I rarely eat at any of those, might be because my town is the only one in the world that has neither. view post

Erikson is awesome. Go Steve. Yhough I'm not saying that Bakker is bad, after a few chapters of tDtCb, I couldn't stop :) view post

I admit to hating GotM the first time I read, it, but that might have been because I came directly from books with much simpler plots, like Jordan and Eddings. I put it down and read aSoIaF instead. After that I had absolutely nothing good to read, and no money to buy more books for. So to make time pass I started GotM again, and after making my way through the first hundred pages I was hooked. I read all the books out at that time (Gardens, Gates, Memories and Chains), and after that went directly back to Gardens and read all of them again before doing Midnight Tides. Steven Erikson reigns supreme. view post

The end of Memories of Ice (Malazan book 3). The attack on Coral (I think that was the name). I was in a "WTF?!?" state for several chapters. Especially when [quote="spoiler":329r5dqe][color=black:329r5dqe]Whiskeyjack and the bridgeburners die.[/color:329r5dqe][/quote:329r5dqe] The end of Midnight Tides (Malazan book 5), in the throne room. And the red wedding, of course. view post

Asha will be in both books, and I'm pretty sure that Theon is no longer a PoV. The kingsguard in Dorne is Arys Oakheart. Arya is in Dance. view post

[quote="azdahak":3rwz5ugf]Erikson is my fave, but Martin and Bakker is not that far behind. All in all a dastardly trio! :P HOT[/quote:3rwz5ugf] They should team up and write the best book known to man :) view post

You should add "Have sex with tubgirl" to the list. view post

[quote="Deerow":391o1b4g][quote="Arkmam":391o1b4g]You should add "Have sex with tubgirl" to the list.[/quote:391o1b4g] God...why do the words "tub" and "girl" invariably remind me of one particularly disturbing picture. I can only assume it is the same one you are also thinking of. God bless the Internet.[/quote:391o1b4g] The one and only :) view post

Karsa all the way, he's macho enough to eat cars and crap chainsaws. view post


posted 04 Aug 2005, 11:08 in Off-Topic DiscussionMore about Erikson books... by Arkmam, Candidate

The Bone Hunters prologue, which takes place directly after the end of House of Chains, is set in the 22nd (I think) year of the empresses's rule, instead of 12th (again, I think) as it "should" be. Just add about ten years to every date given earlier than Midnight Tides, or better, just don't care about the dates and read on. :) view post

Steven Erikson. Steve, sweet Steve, you are the light at the end of the tunnel, we praise thy name, for thou art king and does not totally suck ass like some authors I could mention. view post

First fantasy I read, and I still reread it sometimes (even though I almost know it by heart nowadays). view post
