Thanks for your answer.

If it's not too much to ask, can you clarify anything about Kellhus' vision on the circumfix? The monk and the beast inverted, the woman's hip, the tree, etc., what do those things mean? And was it actually the No-God that spoke to Kellhus on the circumfix or Ajokli?

According to a Google search the epub of the unholy consult was posted on a certain forum on July 7th around 2pm. So yeah, at this point any remotely known book will be pirated on release pretty much. There is really no point trying to stop that.

Wait, the Mutilated are the sons of Imimorul? Also, such a bummer about the lost posts...

What's the significance of his answer about the tapestry?

Is Meppa going to show up in the next series or is his story over?

Also, can you confirm that Kellhus actually failed in the end and didn't pull off some trick to fool Ajokli and the Consult?

Why would he destroy the Hundred to stop damnation? Assuming that he could? He saw himself descending as hunger in the outside and he was quite fine with that...

Wasn't that Bakker's point from the beginning?  The anti-trope fantasy epic?  There is no satisfying end.  Nothing is wrapped up neatly.  It's the anti-LotR.  Everything just falls apart.

Ah... So it's bad on purpose? :P

Just kidding. I think the story picks up some decades after the end of TUC. Remember that Bakker said a long time ago that TUC is the book that ends the arcs of all characters introduced in PoN. That means that, presumably, Achamian should have died of old age after preparing people for the No-God somehow, Esmenet dies of old age too, Mimara is either dead or a very old woman. The main characters are Mimara's son, MoŽnghus, Crabhand, etc who have all grown up.

Well, the glossary says that they want to close the world to the outside "in case they ever die". (Don't have the book now but I remember that in there, possibly in the IF entry.)

Weird that during the "Moenghus is behind it all" discussions some people used Kellhus's mistakes/near deaths throughout PoN as evidence that the Dunyain are fallible and that Moenghus simply fucked up and died. Now some of those same people won't accept that Kellhus could have failed. No, he must have planned it all, he is infallible after all...

in fact rereading the books there is almost never an example of a character looking like their mother, they always resemble their father.

Currently reading TUC, I came across this,

There is talk in earlier books about how "when the seed is strong" the womb acts as a mere vessel. I doubt it applies to everyone, though.

Where is it said that Esmenet's father forced himself on her?

I think he may have read last year's excerpt by accident.  ;)

Try using a different browser and going fullscreen by pressing F11 if you're on Chrome makes the box a lot bigger. To be clear the WHCB section ends with,

Actually, Kalbear made this comment on Westeros,

On the first two chapters: the second one is cut pretty short (like 10 pages) and even in the middle of a subchapter, so those of you who have read the thing be careful of spoiling what isn't in there yet. (The WHCB and chapter 1 appear to be intact however).

The what comes before actually goes to the end of TGO. Chapter 1 seemed a bit short to me for a Bakker chapter but I don't see any reason to think that it's cut off. Chapter 2 ends fine except for a missing " at the end.
