Back in that golden age when Bakker was interacting with readers while creating The Prince of Nothing, he gave credit to certain particular persons.

From TWP Acknowledgments:
"Wil Horsley and Jack Brown at [3seas?] for their tremendous and talented support.
Ur-Lord, Mithfanion, and Loosecannon for putting the virus in viral marketing!"

From TTT Acknowledgments:
"But the people I most need to thank are the fans of the series.  This includes everyone at www.three-seas.com and the "other author" forum at sffworld.com.  The names that come immediately to mind are: Jack Brown, Wil Horsely, Gary Wassner, White Lord, Dylanfanatic, Ainulindale, Mithfanion, Leiali, Texmex, and, of course, Saintjon."

So, are you here?  Where are ye?

I believe Wil was Sovin's Wilshire (weird notation, that). Sovin hosts our beloved noosphere now.

Mithfanion posts by Calibander at Westeros and has registered here following Bakker's blog about my having read the Unmentionable (Bakker's been cited many times as suggesting that Mithfanion has the closest speculative vision to what happens in the series overall).

White-Lord has been sadly MIA for much time and I wish would resurface. Saintjon, I believe, is unJon at Westeros and here but I'm not positive about that one.

But if anyone else is here they can answer for themselves ;).

I think he is saying that you are the lamb to his tuna fish, or spaghetti to his meatball if you are more comfortable with that analogy.

Lamb to tuna fish? Protein to meat? You people are miserable at analogies. How about dancing monkey to trainer?

Thought this might happen...

Edit:  What do you mean, "you people"?

It won't do you much good. Mithfanion doesn't post much in the Bakker threads there. Better to read their back and forth on Zombie Three-Seas and in the comments on The False Sun and The Four Revelations of Cinial'jin.

Lol.

From TWP Acknowledgments:
"Wil Horsley and Jack Brown at [3seas?] for their tremendous and talented support.

Jack is Sovin. He was like the anti-me in that he participated very little in the Three-Seas (mostly because he was affecting change by participating in the Peace Corps and running three or four different .coms during and after university at the same time).

Wil (and Harrol, to be clear) were Sovin's Wilshires (or Duncan Idahos, Watsons, etc, etc ;)). Wil and Wilshire were and are the right hand/mad dogs of the powers that be of BakkerWorld.

Dylanfanatic was a poster at Wotmania, Larry is his username at Westeros i believe. He runs a blog as well. It was him that suggested i read the darkness that comes before.

Don't know him beyond he gives good book recommendations lol
