  1. In Topic: Is Erikson your favourite author?

    07 February 2020 - 11:05 PM

    Can't say Steve Erikson is my favourite favourite, but he's warming on me.... Other favourites of mine include (the usual) George R. R. Martin, Brandon Sanderson, Glen Cook, and (the unusual) Bent Weeks, David Webber, Neal Stephenson, Isaac Asimov, Phillip Pullman, and Pierce Brown. Gotta mention Ray Bradbury and Richard Matheson for Fahrenheit 451 and I Am Legend, respectively. Those are two books I won't ever forget :) Is sci-fi off-topic for a fantasy forum? :p

    Hi. My name is Uhzna Twfu. I'm new here, and I am here to assert my superiority ... or something. I suffer from delusions of grandeur. I will do lurking and stalking :) My first target is Abyss.

    GotM was written a long time before the other books, so be prepared for inconsistencies with the rest of the series.
    The Rhivi Plain is the whole flat area bordered by the Tahlyn Mountains, IIRC. Pale is located on the Rhivi Plain and surrounded by it.

    There are a couple of tips to keep in mind as you read:
    1. Characters will generally not explain things which are either common knowledge or shared knowledge between them for the reader's benefit.
    2. Not every interaction between important characters happens "on screen" as it were.
    3. Remember, always, that every narrator is unreliable. All of the series is written from the points of view of various characters, and no character is omniscient or a 100% source on anything.


    Of course! I have read many books in my time; I know all about perspective, asymmetric information, unreliable narrators, and the like. I was thinking more along the lines of abiogenesis of information: knowing something that isn't common knowledge. But I digress...

    Some of the typos got fixed in later editions, so it may depend on what edition you're reading, though it also might be that not all typos ever got fixed.


    It has an author's foreword from 2007, so published sometime after that. The book doesn't say. I'm not too concerned about typos, anyway. It's a part of my meta-reading to log things like that.

    May the Seven Holies preserve us.
  4. In Topic: How fast do you read?

    07 February 2020 - 08:54 PM

    My reading speed is proportional to how engaged I am in what I am reading. So the test is probably skewed a bit. 191 WPM, 91% comprehension.
  5. In Topic: COVID-19 (aka Coronavirus, aka 2019-nCoV)

    Is good news. Solve population problem, one fell swoop :) No?

    You know how it goes - so many books, so little time. It's like having Netflix, HBO, Amazon etc all at once.
    But nice pickup ;)
