I'm gonna ask since someone has to.

Who do you guys think he would have elected for the wild night of passion?

That was my second thought... I suppose every heterosexual man would be attracted by Masan Gilani, but the narrator of this books seems to have a soft spot for bigger women like Tattersail or Silverfox.
Of course, he can be playing unreliable narrator...

You know I thought the same thing and thought of Rumjuggs and Sweetlard when I did but maybe he's being faithful to archeological proof that bigger women were far more sought after in general history. I thought this preference in those days was largely due to birthing being easier for wider women although that too might not be entirely accurate. It's bone structure more than body weight there.

Anyways SE is a masterful writer and plays up his narration with careful perspective opinion and appreciation. That doesn't mean he doesn't drink from the same well of interest, just that i imagine it's done more for accuracy than personal interest.

I do think the high priestess of shadow in TtH, Sordiko Qualm?, and Iskarals commentary on her...charms spoke directly to what SE might appreciate in a woman...but that's just my opinion. :p

TCB: The introductions to the chapters, like poems, excerpt and fragments are a special meta-narrative experience where there is a student (the reader) that is browsing “The Book of the Fallen” in a hypothetical library?
Or the introductions represent something more simple and don’t have a meta-narrative function?
Speaking of “The Book of the Fallen” there is some debate here about who is the author: Kaminsod, Fiddler or someone else?


SE: There is a strong hint towards the meta-narrative in the entire series, in its manner of telling, in its purpose behind the telling, in its manifold answers to a whole host of needs. The idea of course is to leave the interpretation open, allowing for as many possibilities as you might consider. Whose story is it? Who is telling this tale? Kruppe? Fisher? Kaminsod? Take your pick and in each choice you make, you will be right. The Book of the Fallen is a compilation, with purpose.


I really need to focus on this aspect on my next reread.

On my second reread I was pretty aware this book of the fallen might be recorded by a potential acolyte of the Crippled God, it occurs to me the scene with Koryk watching Cottilions final act may have impressed him hard enough to feel he owed a retelling? Something about him at that final scene just suits.
