Introduce Yourself / Re: Fresh from the SRD-forum

Hi, thanks. SRD stands for Stephen R. Donaldson. Author, well known for The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. His superb Gap series is criminally underread.

Ah, I have never read any of those, so you are probably somewhat right at the least.

Certainly the Chronicles were a dark dark take on fantasy before that became trendy. The Gap, ahem, quite dark as well, in my recollection making use of the POV per chapter before I saw that again in a Game of Thrones. Plotwise and characterwise still among the most exciting things I've ever read.

Hullo there,

After a long time lurking, after having read all the PON and TAS released so far, I'd like to join in the conversation.

Welcome, I have no idea what SRD is, but feel free to jump in, don't be intimidated, most of us are pretty aware that we are probably wrong (on a number of things).

The Great Ordeal / Re: [TGO SPOILERS] Momemn

What I wondered about the setup with demon-Malowebi being sent forth by Kellhus is, how will that be relevant? Will we really get chapters of events in Zem, in the middle of the siege of Golgotterath? Or will this be a longplay and will we see payoffs in the third series?

The Great Ordeal / Re: [TGO Spoilers] Overall thoughts on the book?

After a couple of weeks, what my impression is of the writing is that it seems to me to become more obscure the more it reveals. Which I find interesting. Still trying to maintain mystery and or ambiguity, I guess.
