    Itís certainly Whelan but it already has a large black mark on it featuring that head case Shallen which has to be my single most least favorite character in any series Iíve ever read. Lovely coloring though.


    Maybe it's Veil or Radiant on the cover. :killingme: Not exactly an improvement to Shallan, though.

    Well, I'm one of the sixty three fans he mentions and look forward to the book. :thumbup:

    Got A LITTLE HATRED by Abercrombie and the Complete Illustrated Earthsea by Le Guin for Xmas, and Iím using some Xmas money to buy ANARCH BY Abnett. Thatís not a bad haul!


    I've seen some reviews on Amazon(.de) that the quality of the paper and binding suck, which has made ma wary about buying the book. Sometimes those problems are real (like that Dune edition with print running into the inside margins so far that you had to open the book really wide and crack the spine). Can you say something about the quality of the Earthsea book?


    Seems fine to me. My only complaint so far is that itís HEAVY AF. Which means reading it anywhere but at home...is a no go. The paper quality seems fine, even quality. No other print issues that Iíve found. Binding seems solid.


    Thanks for the info.

    No surprise about Heavy. ;) But I got some non-fiction books in the 5-6 pound range, so I'm used to dealing with monsters.

    The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski - Really interesting collection of short stories about The Witcher. Definitely worth checking out, though I'd add that I'd beyond book 1 and 2, the series is disappointing.


    I like the novels. But they are very different from the short stories, which may be one of the reasons a number of readers have a problem with them. I've come at the Witcher books from a different angle; I read Sapkowski's historical fiction trilogy first and got used to his approach to writing novels. That is alas, not a door open to English readers, since that trilogy has not been translated into English (it is avaliable in a German translation, though).
