Recommended Posts

A colleague of mind who sits directly opposite to me has Sword of Truth as her favorite fantasy saga.

What should I say to her?

"I understand you have only ever read one fantasy saga. Allow me to introduce you to Steven Erikson. He also has evil chickens."

I don’t remember evil chickens in MBotF... but I’m sure they are at least 30,000 years old.

Reaper's Gale (or maybe Midnight Tides), Tehol starts ranting about some chickens because he thinks they are evil and Bugg is like "WTF?" in response. IIRC, Abercrombie also had an evil chicken interlude in one of the First Law stand-alones.

Didn't Cosca have a noble goat at one point too?

I would love if those were intentional riffs on Goodkind. But lets be honest, chickens ARE evil looking assholes :)

Erikson and Abercrombie were both very, very well aware of the Goodkind Kerfuffle back in the day (as was GRRM, but I don't think he's put in a dig in any of his books yet), so yes, I'd consider it were very likely that both were deliberate.

I remember the noble goat from Best Served Cold, but I don't remember an evil chicken in the series.

In the last thread, I dissected Lex Luthor as the perfect example of an objectivist character and how they behave when they don't have the narrative on their side, including directly connecting their villainy to several beliefs they hold that come straight out of objectivist works. I promised last thread that the next target would be Walter White, found that someone else had already done it, then moved on to Light Yagami from Death Note. Objectivists are a unique brand of evil so the only other character I can think of who is one without being meant to critique Objectivism like Andrew Ryan is Eric Cartman who thinks that what heroes do is make the world a better place for themselves.
