After a couple years obsessing over the series, it seems time to join the real discussion. Occasional lurker, first time poster.

I've been an occasional presence at /r/bakker (I'm the one who narrated The False Sun), but analysis never seems to run very deep over there, nor do the threads last very long.

Ah well,  the discussions here tend to be deep, if not a bit passionate, and sometimes they gone on for years.

Glad to have you numbered among the horde  :)

Thanks, it's good to be here!  :) I just finished The Unholy Consult, and I'm really enjoying what everyone's posted so far

That's right, and I could hardly be more hyped for it!  ;D
Just meeting people who have actually read Bakker would be awesome enough, but with the man himself coming, and the fact that TUC is finally out ... it's the perfect storm of an event.

Welcome HoY.

Say hi to the Phyrexia for me.

I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

The Father of Machines sends his regards. He's feeling a bit jealous of good old Mog and the whole Resumption business.

Welcome HoY. I enjoyed your narration of False Sun.
“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?”
