For the record, I did mean Serwa. I assumed she was responsible for all those Surillic Points floating up near the ceiling... ;)

A personalized The Court of Broken Knives from Anna Smith Spark presented to Bakker at Zaudunyanicon.

What's the significance of Bakker signing that particular book, is the author a forum member? Also should i be reading the book?

Facebook member, and yes you should read it. 1st in a trilogy, I enjoyed it.
“No. I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me,

Just MG's terrible angle on reality - The J.J. Abrams of Zaudunyanicon Photographers ;).

I was going to say, I know that Redeagl and MSJ enjoyed it and H didn't so much.

The author is a member of the Grimdark Fiction Readers & Writers group on Facebook, apparently has industry connections from heaven as her recent appearances with a variety of Fantasy icons at Worldcon suggests, and counts Bakker a primary influences regarding her own writing.

Bakker and me! Gall, do I look stupid clean-shaven and without my requisite "Who Are The Dunyain?" snap-back..

Bakker talking on the Friday night, Tim Horton's in hand. A good portion of the video will be from Friday, no doubt.

Bakker is such a big silly Canadian. His "eh" game could use some work, but the Tim Hortons makes up for it.
To know is to have power over the world. To believe is to have power over men.

I'll admit her book wasn't revolutionary, and had many plot holes and armour. That being said, it has potential. And, when it comes to fantasy I'm not hard to please and think the story has alot of room to grow. Its nothing like Bakker if that's what people are wondering. But, it's got potential and her writing wasn't jarring and kept me interested. 3 1/2 out of 5.

Was the audio/video of this uploaded somewhere? Or any of the responses for the Q and A?

Not yet, or not that I'm aware of. Sorry Wolfdrop, the world conspires against us currently.

We're waiting on audio transcripts to be approved by Bakker. It'll likely be some more weeks at this rate. Straight up audio is likely a no-go, unless the Nascenti want to share their private recordings at their own discretion. Bakker the Brother has basically shelved any video for the time being...

I still have more pictures to share and, while MG, Wilshire, and I seem more busy than "usual," there are six other Nascenti to ping and quiz if you're curious about their Erratic recollections.

"Next year," whenever that may be...

I'm sure the Ishoiya crowd and now the Nascenti of Zaudunyanicon will try and get together in 2018. Whether than includes Bakker or not, I couldn't be sure. I was literally after him as far back as Sep 2016 for August 2017 and it wasn't until a week or two beforehand that he confirmed publicly.

I dunno if the economics, let alone everything else, will work out such that we can do it that often - both for the planers and the attendees.

If I were being honest, I'd say hoping for something the next time there is a book release wouldn't be totally outlandish but still perhaps not necessarily a distinct possibility.

Good rule of thumb.
