Reddit slow right now, link might not work.

Someone at the Fantasy subreddit has been in contact with Bakker about doing an AMA and he's apparently expressed some interest. They want to make sure there's enough subscribers ready to ask questions, so let them know you're down. "Ask Me Anything" can be a great promotional tool and would definitely open the series up to a larger swath of fantasy readers.

AWESOME! this is actually some of the best news i have heared in a while.
“The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before?”

I find the format of Reddit completely unreadable, but I'll try to make an account and post something.
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasűrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

I once tried to make an account and post, but failed. I'll have to Google reddit for dummies and watch a YouTube clip lol.

I love this quote from that link "God save us from those who think fiction is the primary means by which people are oppressed."

It seems a simple matter of scheduling.

Is it this hard to schedule an AMA ?

Its not about reddit or the AMA, its about Bakker and his inability to do things outside of writing awesome books.
