  1. I'm glad I stopped keeping up with Cage Match after the first one. Crippled Jaime winning? Come on now.
  2. Yeah I read them in publication order along with the books. The short stories are decent but not required reading. Though The Ghosts if Tristain Basin would serve as a good intro to Sins of Empire. That’s probably the story most likely to enhance the novels. Haven’t read the latest short story yet.
  3. That keyboard. I used to have the same one like 20 years ago.
  4. My productivity has skyrocketed since I put self imposed limitations on my internet usage a couple of months ago. I was at a stress management training, and they said that the most productive people work for 52 minutes, then take a 17 minute break. So I set a timer and I only get on the internet while on break. Rothfuss should try this.
  5. I'm about halfway through book 2. Sometimes I'm bored, sometimes I love it. Right now it's actually the Red Knight's thread that I'm least interested in....I'm really enjoying some of the side threads that develop at a much faster pace.
  6. I haven't noticed "obviously," but I definitely notice "fortunately/unfortunately".
  7. The first 3 sentences could be lifted straight from a GRRM Not a Blog post. Then the fourth sentence turns it on its head.
  8. My shitpost could not have been any lazier
  9. Mistborn: The Final Empire
  10. Blade of Tyshalle is divisive. Some people absolute love it, and others were disappointed. It's unfortunate that you just saw those who love it. I like BoT and all of the Caine books, but I went in knowing it was not going to be a fast read. Heroes Die is still my favorite, and it's certainly the least divisive.
  11. https://coppermind.net/wiki/Oathbringer/Statistical_analysis This has Oathbringer closer to 450k words.
  12. Favorite one so far? In the past year I read King Rat and Perdido Street Station. I thought PSS was fantastic.
  13. Same. I've only read the dramatis personae so far but it got me excited again.
  14. Words of Radiance is the highest rated book on my Goodreads and the highest rated I've seen on Amazon. But that doesn't surprise me at all. It was one of my favorite books of all time, and Brandon has mass appeal. I don't agree with Oathbringer having a rating that high, but Brandon is just one of those authors who will always get a high rating, even if the quality varies. There are some other authors in the same boat. Michael Sullivan, Peter Brett, Brent Weeks, Jim Butcher off the top of my head.
  15. 1. Grace of Kings by Ken Liu 2. Perdido Street Station by China Mieville 3. The Unholy Consult by R. Scott Bakker All three of those were strong enough to be my #1 in most years. Even TUC which is admittedly uneven and possibly frustrating.
