Topics I've Started

  1. need rereaaaaaaaaaaddd

    Ever have this happen....? You're responding to another post and you go looking for a bit of information you forgot and you reread some old post and BANG... you need to reread the MBF series...

    To this day, having read everything Malazan written so far, DG still remains one of my all time fave books ever. I switch back and forth somewhat between DG and MoI as absolute fave Malazan book, but either way, DG is awesome and the Chain of Dogs one of the most unique and novel fantasy storylines i have read.

    Vathar Crossing is amazing. All of it, from the butterflies to the betrayal to Sorno's death to the marines to the part where the refugees go nuts and rush the archers in the forest, it blows me away every time i read it.


    Coltaine is a big part of why DG is so great. Without ever giving us his pov, SE shows us by the povs of Duiker and others around him just why the refugees, and even the enemy, start to believe that Coltaine can do the impossible.

    His death at the Fall, especially Squint having to make the shot, is shattering.

    I have a few others that have always stood out...

    On the Chain of Dogs...

    When the sappers pop up on the ramp from under their sheilds;
    When the Nobles' servants are enlisted in the Malazan army;
    When Coltain 'demotes' the sappers' Captain;

    Fiddler and co...

    Apsalar taking out the riders early on;
    When Fid's horse stays with him even as crazed shapeshifters are closing in;
    The run for Tremolor, everything's going nuts, shapeshifters everywhere, Icarium's losing it... and Pust calls for help... and the Hounds of Shadow respond;

    Felisin and Heboric...

    Fener being depigged when Baudin puts Heboric's green hand on his tattoos;
    Gryllen's wave of rats eating Kulp - in a holy fuck, did that just happen? sort of way;


    Everything about Kalam's run at Laseen particularly the Malaz island rat dog eating a Claw's face, and Minala's excellent ride to the rescue. GotM doesn't really show Kalam at his full potential - he spends a lot of time being foil to QB. But SE spends much of DG with other people reacting to the fact that this. Is. KALAM. And then after Pearl stabs him and pitches him over the side and things are looking bad, Kalam does his hide-body-heat thing, grabs a pair of pliars and a bag of tacks and starts killing Claws, and we see, we REALLY see, just why he's legendary.

    - Abyss, fan.

  2. THE LOST METAL a reading/listening thread

    21 November 2022 - 07:26 PM

    Halfway into Sanderson's Mistborn - Wax & Wayne 4 - THE LOST METAL and very enjoying the ride.

    Felt like doing one of these threads.

    You know the drill, spoilers for anything else Cosmere/Sanderson published to date are fair game, no blocks, no warnings.

    No spoilers beyond where i've read - start your own thread if you need to or wait til i'm done.

  3. Short story in HEROIC HEARTS anthology

    27 April 2022 - 07:16 PM

    Butcher has a short story in the upcoming HEROIC HEARTS anthology and this is the blurb and therefore i must buy this immediately...


    In number one New York Times best-selling author Jim Butcher’s “Little Things”, the pixie Toot-Toot discovers an invader unbeknownst to the wizard Harry Dresden...and in order to defeat it, he’ll have to team up with the dread cat Mister.

    Unbound Worlds now redirects to the PRH website, so that Top 100 fantasy link no longer works. Here's a very similar one though:

    Because some mobile browsers don't resize and it makes the thread unreadable.

    Just out of curiosity, why is it necessary to spoiler big pics on this forum? They go off the page and don't cause the text to unwrap, and they get resized in mobile browsers. I don't mind doing it; just asking.

    There is a word to describe that pic, I just found one in the depths of my convulsing brain. It's DISTURBING but in a funny way.

    If you're keeping score, I think my conversation (in a WoT thread, I think) with that one noob-troll about how to get banned from Malazan is worth a few. (i.e. "I recommend telling Malaclypse he's a douchebag.")

    When the new order rises, lazy posters will be among the first to be purged.

    Good call with the spoilers tags. I didn't want to add them because it makes it extra work to read posts :D
