Great read as usual. No spoilers, I suppose, though he references something explicitly from the Achamian/Mimara complete chapter excerpt and that certain places are explored and/or under siege in forthcoming volumes.

EDIT: Looks like both my questions made it :).

He also names delavagus the authorial successor should the worst happen.

Writing-Conglomerate stand down. We have one buffer between us and Herb-dersoning TSTSNBN 8).

I really wish delavagus still engaged here.

I don't pretend to know what he means by "ending any other way would be a betrayal." It's just nice to have new words from the man to parse (and the rest is just a great quote):

Quote
The way I see it, fantastic literature is the dirge of our civilization, a final retelling of our most ancient and primordial songs. The song ends when our voices fall silent. No one knows what follows the song. We can only hope that we’re somehow stronger for the singing.

This is what the best storytelling does, I think: arms us against what we cannot understand. Given my themes, ending any other way would be a betrayal.

It's full of good news, and I found it hilarious.

But this rich, and now good looking, fans that keep getting mentioned, someone needs to send them this way.

Couple of mine made too, I think  8)

Right?

Affluent twenty-somethings who are also rich and good looking?

Well know we know about Eanna. I do hope we get a couple more hints, though.

He's returned!

Read a sample of Roger Eichorn's Three Roses, Bk. 1 here and provide feedback either on his blog or in our own dedicated thread :).

The July 2017 date is heartening, and somewhat expected, I thought it would be a year after release.

Well, let's get one book out to the masses ;).

You know more than many others that the path is long, Mith.

I think it means he's not finishing with some thematic dogma people can apply to the real world. No neat moral, perhaps. Expect a plot finished, but questions the plot raises about life to be left way open ended.

Indeed. May all the Nonmen lost return.

Yeah, I was talking with profgrape awhile ago and I can't imagine what Bakker readerly catharsis could possibly look like.
