re: Sci-Fi/Fantasy Recommendation & Discussion Thread - auyushu
[quote]this may be weird, but it is no way surprising.[/quote] My surprise was more due to him not having Karsa front and center more due to his last book being a huge flop and his publisher not letting him finish that series (and forcing him to start the Karsa series instead). Not including Kars...

[quote]am reading book 1 of Spellslinger and I like it a lot. I hope it doesn't suffer the same fate. [/quote] It doesn't really suffer the same way. While I liked the greatcoat series start to finish, it definitely becomes more grim and has less of the wonderful humor as the series goes on. ...

[quote]about Karsa but Karsa is not in book 1)[/quote] Hmm, weird choice. Hopefully he gets it back together with this series, his last Malazan book (second book of the tiste andii prequel series) was straight garbage. One of the few books I've quit on half way through it was so bad (so bad his p...
