  1. https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/8y82wl/im_joe_abercrombie_ask_me_anything/ Abercrombie did an AMA with several good smartass answers, but he did confirm that Glotka will be significant in the upcoming trilogy.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    Hey I just remembered why Cold Iron sounds familiar. It was a recurring theme in Malazan, and the name of one of the sub-books...in House of Chains I believe. Cameron really likes Erikson.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    Cameron is an Erikson fan. Did he just forget that there's already a book called Forge of Darkness? Granted he does forget a lot.

    June '18 Reading - Something something witty.

    It's a much different kind of book than Heroes Die. There are some excellent moments but the pacing mostly stays the same throughout.

    May - Reading 2018 - Have another?

    I agree but I thought LPQ had the better ending.

    Bakker LIV - Soul Sphincter

    Same here. I finished TGO not long before TUC came out and didn't really get a chance to catch up on all of the speculation. I thought TUC was excellent, one of the best in TSA.

    The Richard Morgan Thread III

    I've read Altered Carbon, and now I'm halfway through The Steel Remains. So far I'm enjoying TSR more. I really enjoy the asshole protagonists Ringil and Egar, but then I liked Kovacs as well. I guess I just enjoy fantasy worldbuilding more than sci fi.

    Bakker LIV - Soul Sphincter

    I personally thought this chapter was weird as fuck and just dragged on and on. Loved the rest of Isrerebenth and TUC though.
  9. He has said the upcoming trilogy is written like a trilogy of trilogies. It's going to be a nightmare trying to figure out the reading order.

    Bakker LIV - Soul Sphincter

    While I definitely think the first series is better, the second series has more moments that really stick with me. I'll definitely be rereading these books some day.

    is the WoT series worth reading

    I don't know but it was posted by Terez, who is probably like a top 5 WoT superfan. I got the link from the Malazan forums.

    is the WoT series worth reading

    I actually agree that the final WoT book could have been shortened significantly. A good chunk of the book was just Trollocs and more Trollocs. But I thought the other 2 Sanderson books were excellent. I was always confused by Pat's dislike of these and how he could think they're filler, but our opinions diverge quite a bit.

    Book series with best character development?

    Honestly when it comes to character development for a large cast, I think ASoIaF wins.

    The books coming out in 2018

    Same. I'm still on Shadows of the Apt. He has way more books out that I haven't read now than he did when I started this series.
