Mr. Bakker, Thanks for sharing your imagination with us. I have enjoyed The Judging Eye and the Prince of Nothing series very much. Can't wait for the next one. Two questions: Do you listen to Rush? (Are you a Neil Peart fan?) What did Kellhus do with his heart after he pulled it from his chest in The Warrior-Prophet (pg 589)? I was hoping I would understand more after reading the whole series but I keep thinking of the Indiana Jones movie (Temple of Doom). Did he just put it back in when he was done holding it up to everyone? Am I taking this too literally? Jnanically submitted, Kurt view post

I don't even remember that thing with the heart happening, or wait, maybe it was Serwe's? I think I kinda remember it like that. It's been a while since I've reread that book however. view post

I think that's answered in a thread here somewhere - that area of the book got alot of rewriting, so things are kind of odd for that reason. I think it was serwe's, but the ambiguity left (both deliberately and because of the rewrite) lets you kind of feel what it would be like for other people to see him pull his own heart from his chest. And squeeze it like a stress ball...just joking :) view post
