-SB interview.

Assumptions & guesses look like all we gunna get.[/quote:27zm7ff9]

Or perhaps not. Remember that Scott is notoriously afraid of spoilers, so he may simply be unwilling to say more. view post

Kellhus vs Whiteluck -<SPOILERS>- posted 05 February 2009 in The Judging EyeKellhus vs Whiteluck -<SPOILERS>- by lfex, Peralogue

It was my impression that the demon heads Kellhus sports on his belt were those of skin spies. Certainly the skin spies are absolutely terrifying (Kellhus no doubt animates them) but they are not demonic.[/quote:1t9cbnc2]

No, they are specificaly referred to as 'Ciphrang heads'.[/quote:1t9cbnc2]
Who refers to them as such? Sometimes Scott switches between describing the world as author and describing the world as seen by a character, without much differentiation in between.[/quote:1t9cbnc2]

I don't have book at hand, but IIRC it was definitely a character. I read it as Ciphrang being just generic term for monster. Sorweel does call Kellhus himself Ciphrang after all. view post

Oddities in The Judging Eye posted 21 March 2009 in The Judging EyeOddities in The Judging Eye by lfex, Peralogue

I loved the LotR meets Blood Meridian aspect. I guess I am just a sucker for po-mo literary games. Besides, it also means that Cleric is both Gandalf and Judge Holden - something I would never believed to be possible.

Also, Scott mentioned in some interview that he reduced number of POVs in TJE after reading A Feast for Crows, since he feared falling into the never ending series trap, which harmed so many fantasy series. view post

The Doomed Ordeal? posted 03 April 2009 in The Judging EyeThe Doomed Ordeal? by lfex, Peralogue

Quote: "BobbyR":5dpav3ph

Maybe the answer to the original question is similar to "Why not just fly the Eagles straight to Mount Doom, and drop the Ring in?" Because then you wouldn't have a story.[/quote:5dpav3ph]

Well, as someone noticed last week on the answer for this question is &quot;Gwaihir the Ringlord&quot; <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> I don't see why eagles should be immune to one ring's lure. As for the fate of Great Ordeal, the many similarities with Napoleon's army trip to Moscow seem to be foreshadowing what will happen next. This is going to end badly. The question is: did Kellhus made a huge mistake or is it precisely what he wants? view post

Incariol, what does it mean? posted 28 September 2009 in The Judging EyeIncariol, what does it mean? by lfex, Peralogue

...remember that Aurang admitted that the Consult created Nonmen skin-spies.[/quote:37n8n7cf]

Where did this occur? I don't remember him saying anything of the sort. It would revise my assumptions about a few things were this true. I was under the impression that skin-spies were invented ca. 3800 YotT, when the Consult &quot;disappeared&quot; from the three-seas. &quot;A new artifact of the Old Science,&quot; I think Achamian said.[/quote:37n8n7cf]

Aurang does mention that the Consult has spies in Ishterebinth, but I always assumed they are Non-Men secretly working for them. view post

Disciple of the Dog posted 02 November 2009 in General DiscusssionDisciple of the Dog by lfex, Peralogue

There is a little more info about this book here:

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=";no2=2"> ... o1=2&amp;no2=2</a><!-- m -->

Bakker, R. Scott
Pages: e-ms 187 pp

DISCIPLE has the audacity of Neuropath, and the same unflinching social commentary, but it’s on very different ground. It’s a detective story, and the main character is Disciple Manning, a hardboiled private investigator with Hyperthymestic Syndrome, a rare mental condition that does not allow him to forget. Disciple is hired to find a teenage girl who he is sure is already dead, and the trail leads him through backward small-town America and right into the midst of two rival religious cults, either -- or neither -- of which could have cut off the girl’s fingers and toes and strewn them around town. It’s an open question whether Disciple’s anarchic tendencies, scabrous behavior and subversive observations will derail the investigation, or whether in the end he’ll discover some species of the truth.» view post
