    Bakker LII: Ol' Golgotterath Blues

    LotR is a safe bet. They re going to get back what they paid in doubles, as sure as the sun is going to set tomorrow. That is not the case with Bakker ( Or any other fantasy author ) .
  2. This is all kinds of wrong.

    The Return of JV Jones

  4. It's obvious that when Koringhus "died" he was transferred to this world. Kellhus for example, is Trump. Both are blonde and are ultra stupid.

    Malazan: High House Shadow edition

    The first Karsa book have a name. "The God is not Willing" which hilariously sounds more like a Crusades book than a Malazan one.

    Malazan: High House Shadow edition

    Walk in Shadow is "put on hold". Erikson begins Toblakai trilogy soon. Source : His Facebook page: Steven Erikson- Author I am really meh about this. Disappointing news.
  7. I am thinking of changing one of my Goodreads reviews of the books to this, just to see how many people would unfriend me.
  8. It's as clear as the holy shining truth how serious I was.
  9. To be fair, you have to have a very, very high IQ to understand Bakker's books.The story is extremely subtle and without a solid grasp on philosophy and literature, most of the story will go over the typical reader's head. There is also Bakker's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into the characterization and prose. The prose for example, drew heavily from Greek literature. The fans understand this stuff, they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of Bakker's choice of words. To realize that it's not just hard, it says something deep about LIFE. As a consequence, people who dislike Bakker's books truly ARE idiots. Of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the MEANING in Kellhus's existential cataphrase, "Truth Shines." which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic " Fathers and Sons". I am smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Bakker's genius wit unfolds itself on their e readers or physical copies.What fools... How I pity them... And yes, by the way, I DO have a Bakker tattoo in certain private parts, and no, you can not see it unless you demonstrate your Bakker faith. Nothing personal.

    What Are You Reading: September 2017

    That book... Ugh. Good for you, that you enjoy it though.
  12. No. Akka the Younger is not Kellhus. Just a tool for Akka's character development in TNG. Bet ?
