Good morning to all in the Malazan Empire. I have the pleasure of announcing that I have finally joined this amazing community of like minded fantasy enthusiasts. As much as I say I am a fan of Steven Erikson, I must admit, I was naďve to the fact that there was another amazing person who was part of this creation, this wonderful world of the Malazan Empire. Ian C. Esslemont. I feel so blessed right now to have finally made this discovery, though I understand now that this is common knowledge to anyone who has done any research on the series or about Steven Erikson. For myself I must admit, finding this out has brought me such immense joy, I cannot really express the excitement I feel at this moment. I just purchased “Night of Knives”, and I cannot wait to start down this road of new discoveries. As my first post here, I would like to thank this community for being here, what a wonderful place to be a part of.

Welcome to the forum and have fun!

Just for info, the initial six Esslemont novels sit in the Malazan Book of the Fallen timeline as such:

Night of Knives - after Midnight Tides
Return of the Crimson Guard - after Reaper's Gale
Stonewielder - after Toll the Hounds

'Orb, Sceptre, Throne' and 'Blood and Bone' are a tad contentious. Technically speaking the events they cover take place around the same time as Dust of Dreams and the Crippled God. Obviously for you it doesn't matter as long as you read them in order (SW - OST - BnB), but for a first time mixed read or a re-read you can do TtH - SW - DoD - OST - tCG, or TtH - DoD - SW - OST - tCG, or even TtH - SW - DoD - tCG - OST - BnB. Then finish with Assail. Followed by the fantastic and highly recommendable Esslemont prequel trilogy. And by then the next ICE prequel trilogy will probably be ready!
She went and she left me like litter. She took all future summers with her. I lost all my money cuz I tried to bribe her. Now I can only afford an amateur sniper.

Hi everyone!
I started reading Gardens of the Moon during school, but now that I've graduated, I'm up to the middle of Memories of Ice.
I can't believe I didn't discover Malazan before! I now know that I was reading subpar fantasy at best up to this point. Perhaps it's due to not being in school anymore, but I haven't read as consistently like this in a DECADE. I've barely cracked the surface, but this series has already changed fantasy literature for me. There's no going back, and I love it.

As for my username/screen name -- Confused Azath -- I thought it Apt (ha) here because not only am I often confused, but it seems that sometimes even the ascendants haven't a clue what's going on!

I'm looking forward to talking with you all!
