  13. Blurb: Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman return to the unforgettable world of the New York Times bestselling Dragonlance series as a new heroine—desperate to restore her beloved father to life—sets off on a quest to change time. Destina Rosethorn—as her name implies—believes herself to be a favored child of destiny. But when her father dies in the War of the Lance, she watches her carefully constructed world come crashing down. She loses not only her beloved father but also the legacy he has left her: the family lands and castle. To save her father, she hatches a bold plan—to go back in time and prevent his death. First, she has to secure the Device of Time Journeying, last known to be in the possession of the spirited kender Tasslehoff Burrfoot. But to change time, she’ll need another magical artifact—the most powerful and dangerous artifact ever created. Destina’s quest takes her from the dwarven kingdom of Thorbardin to the town of Solace and beyond, setting in motion a chain of disastrous events that threaten to divert the course of the River of Time, alter the past, and forever change the future. "Key Selling Points" from the Edelweiss catalog: https://www.edelweiss.plus/#sku=9781984819321 ICONIC AND HISTORIC BRAND: Dragonlance was first created in 1984, when the gaming company that made Dungeons & Dragons began publishing a series of novels that were inspired by a D&D campaign. Since its inception, this brand and the original visionaries behind it—Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman—have sold millions of copies worldwide and brought generations of new readers to the genre. A PROVEN FRANCHISE WITH A LOYAL FAN BASE: Dungeons & Dragons has been the number one tabletop role-playing game worldwide since its creation in the 1970s. In 2020 alone, the franchise grew by 26%—their 8th consecutive year of growth. UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO APPEAL TO READERS: These new Dragonlance novels will appeal to not only those readers who grew up loving Dragonlance but also a whole new generation of readers and D&D gamers who did not. A NEW TWIST ON BELOVED CHARACTERS AND SETTINGS: These novels return to the fan-favorite characters that appeared in the two trilogies that formed the core of the Dragonlance phenomenon, Dragonlance Chronicles and Dragonlance Legends, allowing dedicated fans to revisit everything that made the books so special to them. ALL NEW ENDPAPER MAPS: We will be creating all-new maps of the Dragonlance world, which will appear for the first time in this series. Also: "She [Weis] and Hickman are working on future novels in this series."

  17. It is an interesting fact that the Soviet 44th Rifle Division destroyed by Finns in the Winter War (in the Battle of Raate Road) in January 1940 was actually a Ukrainian division. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/44th_Rifle_Division https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Raate_Road Ukrainians have their own monument at the former battlefield: https://www.suomussalmi.fi/en/tourism/see-and-feel/memorials-and-statues/ukrainian-memorial/ The main monument has 17,000 stones representing the number of soldiers who died in the battle of Suomussalmi. Finnish losses were less than one thousand men killed, but Soviets lost according to Finnish estimations 16,000 men. The Battle of Raate Road was a part of the greater Battle of Suomussalmi. https://suomussalmenkunta.kuvat.fi/kuvat/Nähtävyydet ja käyntikohteet - Attractions/Raate/Talvisodan Monumentti.JPG?img=img2048

  24. It's funny that Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell won Hugo Award, World Fantasy Award, Mythopoeic Fantasy Award and Locus Award despite having a "terrible" pacing in the second half... I haven't watched the TV adaption, but I don't think Clarke's novel needs any tightening.
