Erikson? posted 18 May 2005 in Off-Topic DiscussionErikson? by SEF, Candidate

Steven Erikson blows me away. This is not your mother's standard D&D, ooh boy that grates the nerves when people make such ill shortened anal retentive observances. There is purpose and prefabrication flowing through these books, what appears to be an errant thread is soon woven into the growing tapestry. As you progress through the series, the links begin to mend and take shape.

IMO, Erikson surpasses even the master Tolkien in this regard. Tolkien was elaborate but ... straightforward. And the characterizations are topnotch too, each drama touching and always engaging.

Steven Erikson beyond doubt is my current favorite even toppling my previous favorite George R R Martin. view post
