Question posted 13 July 2006 in The Thousandfold ThoughtQuestion by Deornoth, Candidate

I've only just started my re-read so I can't remember where in the book this bit is...

Maithenet is about to leave Sumna and join the Holy War. We are shown the procession through the eyes of two street children, one of whom is taken by the slave traders. Does this piece have any bearing on the story as a whole or is it just a one off? Bakker seems to like to tie everything together but I can't work out where and how this bit fits in... <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? -->

'The Great Ordeal' or 'Horns of Golgotterath'? posted 08 October 2007 in The Great Ordeal [supposed]'The Great Ordeal' or 'Horns of Golgotterath'? by Deornoth, Candidate

This new instalment is one of the books that I'm particularly looking forward to, next year, but can anyone give me a definite title? I've heard it go by two different titles and was wondering if it just has a different title depending where it's being released. If I had to pick, I'd go for 'The Great Ordeal'... <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

What subgroup of speculative fiction do you prefer? posted 08 October 2007 in Literature DiscussionWhat subgroup of speculative fiction do you prefer? by Deornoth, Candidate

It's always been fantasy for me but these days I'm finding that I go for military fantasy (Erikson, Cook) or High Fantasy (Martin, Williams, Keyes in particular). I'm not sure where Bakker fits in sub-genre wise... <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? --> view post


dark tower? posted 08 October 2007 in Literature Discussiondark tower? by Deornoth, Candidate

Quote: &quot;Anonymous&quot;:3o6yhlh2
The books sort of lose their power towards the end. (as in the last 2 or three books) Don't get me wrong it's still King, so it's still readable, but they lost the dream-like, surreal, quality that was so strong in &quot;The Gunslinger&quot;. [/quote:3o6yhlh2]

Right there with you, 'Wolves of the Calla' was ok but I just did not see the point of 'Song of Susannah' at all <!-- s:roll: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt=":roll:" title="Rolling Eyes" /><!-- s:roll: -->
I for one loved the ending of 'The Dark Tower', seemed to be the only way it could possibly go. However, I would like to see a fan-fic alternate ending where Roland gets to the top of the tower and has a big party with all his mates <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post


great reads in fantasy? posted 08 October 2007 in Literature Discussiongreat reads in fantasy? by Deornoth, Candidate

Also some people love Greg Keyes (Blood Knight, etc.)[/quote:7jxrbyqg]#

Including me! <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> 'The Kingdoms of Thorn &amp; Bone' have been described as 'Martin Lite' which I think is a compliment (I think <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? --> ) and they're good fun to get into.
If you haven't read it already then Tad Williams' 'Memory, Sorrow and Thorn' is another good series as well <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post

OK, that makes more sense...
