Steven-Erikson.org is the new site, although they seem to be having certificate issues.

I note the Complete Published Works section lists a "Kharkanas Trilogy" ... :ermm:
"Hardcore porn has distorted nearly every aspect of my life. Whenever I put fuel in the car, I pull the nozzle out just before the tank is full and spray petrol all over the ground. Watering the garden means inviting some mates over and five of us hose the same plant. I don't fluff my pillows anymore, I motorboat them. I don't shop at Big W anymore, to me its BBW. Somebody please help me." - Howser, of BNE

"Obi wan was a bearded religious fanatic, living in a cave in the desert, who duped young men into blowing up a government installation. How is he different from Osama bin Laden?" - Joe Blow

"So half you lot want to free the nipple as not being able to walk around topless is demeaning. The other half want to ban all scantly clad women, as its also demeaning them. Then as a male if I don't want your junk hanging out in public Im a patriarchal misogynist, or if Im happy for you to have your junk on display Im a pervy creep." - Whatevs, of Perth

Ugh, that sure is a modern website.
"Here is light. You will say that it is not a living entity, but you miss the point that it is more, not less. Without occupying space, it fills the universe. It nourishes everything, yet itself feeds upon destruction. We claim to control it, but does it not perhaps cultivate us as a source of food? May it not be that all wood grows so that it can be set ablaze, and that men and women are born to kindle fires?"
―Gene Wolfe, The Citadel of the Autarch

The entry to bk 3 is 'coming soon'.
Wouldn't overthink it, they have to include something and 'tbd/not sure/hopeful' would be more odd.
CHASE: Paw Patrol is ready for action Mr Pust sir!
PUST: *pauses ranting* What does that mean?
ZUMA: It means let's dive in, dude!
PUST: What? What is a dude? WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?????

Feels exceptionally Squarespace-ish....without working entirely like Squarespace?

I can't find a design link, so it's hard to guess at it...but yes, it feels like a new corporate business portal, as opposed to an SFF author website.

I like how empty his calendar on there is because it means he's busy writing!
I bet if we could look at GRRM's calendar it'd be full of events and appearances.
Could be why one author's written tons of books over the last few years and the other has written one.

yeah but when your one book (and associated multimedia rights) makes you enough cash to do a reasonable impression of Scrooge McDuck swimming in his money bin, I'll bet you don't give a fuck. :p

And ugh, I just went visual on GRRM swimming in a huge bin full of money. Whales are graceful, dammit! :shock:
At least he still had his hat on. :doh:

HA thanks for that mental image...

You're right but there still should be some amount of respect and loyalty to the fans who made you so rich in the first place. You kind of owe them for your success and you'd think he'd get some joy out of giving the fans what they want.
I know he's old and probably doesn't care but still it's been years now.
