    His music's rubbish and he's a ginger.

    YES! Another convert! He does the bittersweet ending better than anyone, among his many gifts. He's a wonderful storyteller.

    I really enjoyed that one. It doesn't often get mentioned among his better works

    I also know Deadhouse Gates is most people's favorite, but by the time I read it, I had become absolutely sick of the Horrible Desert Crossing trope. Given it happens several times throughout the series it's a miracle I stayed with it all the way through.

    Blood and Bone was a slog, as was Assail, which I finally gave up on halfway into it. Worth finishing?

    Haven't looked at Fall of Light yet. I thought Dancer's Lament was Esslemont's best book since Stonewielder, which I think is his apex.

    The Road left me quite the blubbering heap.

    I think River of Stars is criminally underrated if we're talking Kay's output in general. The Sarantine Mosaic remains one of my favorite pieces of genre fiction maybe ever. The settings, the writing, the characterization is vintage Kay, who is one of my favorite authors of any genre of fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed this latest book, I'd put it up as a top 5 book of the year. For some reason I stopped reading it because the Great Ordeal arrived in the middle of my reading this book, but I wouldn't have put it down for any other reason. I think it odd he won his World Fantasy Award for Ysabel, which I really enjoyed, but compared with his other output isn't his best.

    Man, the people who are doing his latest cover art for his reissues and this latest one are really killing it.

    Saratine Mosaic is fantastic as is River of Stars. Those would be my top 2. I feel A Song for Arbonne is often overlooked though.
  13. Stop worrying about facebook charging. Its a myth. They make enough money off slanging your info and ad clicks anyhow
