Well Scott, you wanted some discussion of your Interviews ;) posted 02 October 2004 in Interviews and ReviewsWell Scott, you wanted some discussion of your Interviews ;) by Mithfânion, Didact

I'm surprised by the irritated and to some extent big-mouthed replies given on that board. It seems readily apparant that they feel genuinely intimidated and simply lash out. The tone of Stover's responses in particular was that of one looking for a row rather than one interested in debate or even some form of enlightenment. view post


There's a listing for the release posted 30 October 2004 in The Thousandfold ThoughtThere's a listing for the release by Mithfânion, Didact

on Amazon.ca

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.amazon.ca/exec/obidos/ASIN/0143015354/qid=1099175860/sr=1-4/ref=sr_1_3_4/702-8987608-9776806">http://www.amazon.ca/exec/obidos/ASIN/0 ... 08-9776806</a><!-- m -->

It's in April 2005.

Of course the real question is whether or not it will actually be released on that date but presumably amazon got this info from the publisher so.... view post


Time for that very annoying question that many of us have posted 30 October 2004 in Author Q &amp; ATime for that very annoying question that many of us have by Mithfânion, Didact

I see Amazon has listed TTT as an April 22nd release. It's a very recent addition. Any thoughts on that Scott? Could it be accurate? view post

Well presumably they'd get that info from the publisher (though you'd have to say that with Amazon you never know).

Do you think an April release is still likely? view post

Yes, TWP is being released in hardcover in January. view post


Scott, tell me this won't be your excuse for delaying TTT ;) posted 07 November 2004 in Author Q &amp; AScott, tell me this won't be your excuse for delaying TTT ;) by Mithfânion, Didact

Rest assured, though, the writing is going VERY well. I'm getting pretty damned excited!

Aaahh, now those are the words we're looking for! view post

On a more positive side, his latest updat reports that he hopes to have it finished by year's end. Now he may not actually succeed in doing that, but the fact that he thinks it's possible at all is most encouraging. view post

It's no longer accurate anyway, Scott has already mentioned that the book is slated for an October release. view post


This time I got a question... posted 22 November 2004 in Author Q &amp; AThis time I got a question... by Mithfânion, Didact



Well actually, they are. For instance, The Knight by Gene Wolfe is coming out in MMPB in January and De lint has mmpb's as well.

Overlook doing a trade version seems like a good option as long as no one is willing to do a pocket.

In any case, I also think that once the trilogy has been completed and there's been lots of word-of-mouth, than publishers might be more inclined.

On the other hand I don't really understand why no one in the US wants these rights. I just don't get it, but then I never understood why it took five years for a US publisher to decide they wanted Steven Erikson either.

On other but related news, I just read that Orbit UK has bought the British rights to Prince of Nothing from Simon &amp; Schuster and will start that off by releasing mass market paperbacks of the first two books in Summer 2005. view post

Aldarion

I want to vote but what isn't clear to me is whether I have to chose one of your site's picks for every category or whether I should simply list my own top 3 for each category.

Thoughts? view post

Art for TTT? posted 12 January 2005 in Author Q &amp; AArt for TTT? by Mithfânion, Didact

Hi Scott,

David Rankine states on his website that he has completed the artwork for TTT quite a while ago. Have you seen the finished article? If so, any chance of posting it?

Art for the UK Editions posted 14 January 2005 in Author Q &amp; AArt for the UK Editions by Mithfânion, Didact

The English covers aren't too bad IMO, they just don't rival the Canadian/US editions.

Cool btw that Orbit will be releasing TDTCB and TWP back-to-back within a month time. view post


A few questions . . . posted 18 January 2005 in Author Q &amp; AA few questions . . . by Mithfânion, Didact

If everything goes to plan, TTT will include a number of appendices, including additional maps and an 'Encyclopaedic Glossary.' It all depends on how much secondary material I can polish up before my deadline.


And this will still contain the Cunuroi-Inchoroi battles featuring Cujara Cinmoi, right?

Interesting to see which of WL's questions will be addressed (to some extent) In TTT btw.

Cil-Aujas a matter to be addressed in TTT as well Scott, or in later books? view post

Aengelas

I love that name. I hope we'll be seeing more of him. view post

As for Aengelas - well things don't look all that good for him at the end of TWP!

Hmm. Is that a hint towards not expecting too much from him anymore? view post


A few questions . . . posted 28 January 2005 in Author Q &amp; AA few questions . . . by Mithfânion, Didact

Good question WL, I'd like to know the difference as well. view post


A few questions . . . posted 29 January 2005 in Author Q &amp; AA few questions . . . by Mithfânion, Didact

Interesting. I wonder if Jiricet would be widely cursed by the Nonmen themselves as well.

I also wonder what the exodus of the Nonmen would have looked like in reality. Would they have been cast out violently by Men or did it go rather peacefully (or perhaps they were too unassailable) (rhetorical question btw Scott). Or why Nil&#8217;giccas didn't return Jiricet (he must have foreseen major trouble yet still...)

Interesting that " twoheart" lived for over 200 years, proof that he did indeed have a " special " father.

Scott, is this then the main reason for the breach of contact between Men and Nonmen, or are there other reasons as well? Also, all of this begs the ineviatble question, do the Siqu still have a role, now that they are no longer councillors?

And on a related note, how high would you rate the chances of your average human warrior being able to take out a Nonman (warrior)? view post


What are you most looking forward to? posted 31 January 2005 in Author Q &amp; AWhat are you most looking forward to? by Mithfânion, Didact

Update:

*Seeing more of the Cunuroi and the Inchoroi

*Finding out who Moenghus is and what he can do (is the TTT his for instance?)

*Kellhus learning the Gnosis and putting it to use.

*Meeting some Consult members

*Seeing Cnaiur's story tied up, encountering Moenghus perhaps.

Scott, how likely is it that I'll be seeing these things? <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> view post

That one was just too easy wasn't it? <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

Without needing to go into anything specific, could you just say if we will see more of the Cunuroi as well as the Inchoroi in TTT ? view post


Character heights in Earwa posted 02 February 2005 in Author Q &amp; ACharacter heights in Earwa by Mithfânion, Didact

Scott,

Tolkien and Martin seem to have this fascination for their character's heights, not just describing it but even attributing certain characteristics or standings to people of great height. I've always wondered about the various heights in the PoN books as well, so it would be informative if you could indicate some figures <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

I'm curious about what you had imagined for the following:

-Kellhus
-Cnaiur
-Achamian
-Cunuroi as a race, their average height
-Inchoroi as a race, their average height
-The Sranc
-Mallahet
-Conphas
-Proyas
-Yalgrota

Perhaps you don't have any figures in mind? If so, what height would the above generally be?

Maybe other posters could state their impressions as well? view post


Okay - I just have to ask posted 03 February 2005 in Author Q &amp; AOkay - I just have to ask by Mithfânion, Didact

How does one go about eating a stiletto heel Annabel?

btw are all women truly shoe-obsessed or just 90% of them? It sometimes seems as if twenty pairs is nothing special. view post


Character heights in Earwa posted 03 February 2005 in Author Q &amp; ACharacter heights in Earwa by Mithfânion, Didact

Hey, that's very interesting!

Kellhus and Cnaiur are obviously tall men, as I had expected. Hadn't expected Achamian quite so short, but certainly short. The women's heights feel right as well.

I don't really know why but I had imagined the Cunuroi's average height as taller than men ( I guess it comes from their general " superiority " in terms of innate power) . Of course, the average height of the race of men (probably) isn't 6 ft, but the difference is still quite small. The Inchoroi are gigantic.

You forgot Mallahet btw. What about him? Or Skayelt?

I'd ask about Moenghus but since we haven't actually met him yet that's a bit premature. How about your namesake? Average height Cunuroi? view post


Character heights in Earwa posted 03 February 2005 in Author Q &amp; ACharacter heights in Earwa by Mithfânion, Didact

Re;Mallahet

I figured <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) --> There was discussion about him possibly being Moenghus so a height estimate could be indicative there.

What about Cujara Cinmoi (seems odd to ask since we haven't seen him yet but in case the text doesn't mention it it's good to know)? view post


Character heights in Earwa posted 03 February 2005 in Author Q &amp; ACharacter heights in Earwa by Mithfânion, Didact

Earwa Related babble... posted 03 February 2005 in Author Q &amp; AEarwa Related babble... by Mithfânion, Didact

Hmm, I've seen the complaint at Westeros a couple of times, What is usually meant is that they can't root for any of the characters. Not for Kellhus, because he's so manipulative and in some people's eyes, so alien. He is an anti-hero in their opinion, because of his ideals/goals. Not for Cnaiur, because of the things he does. Achamian is usually considered alright, but not strong enough a draw to root for (perhaps because he is not the main character in the way that Kellhus comes across as being). view post
