    Have anyone here mayhap read any of these brilliant books of Steven Erikson?
    This is a place to discuss them, or simply brainlessly praise them, or even give critics!

    I've had the pleasure of reading them, and they are fantastic! My three favorite character is Anomander Rake, the son of darkness, Quick Ben, and Whiskeyjack. They are awesome!

    Wow, that's awesome! I wish you good luck in putting it together my friend :)

    Kruppe rocks, I'll be sure to put his sketch here once we get to him and finish him, just for your enjoyment ;)

    *sigh* Sen has. She keeps bugging me to finish the series. I'll get around to it one day. But yeah, from what I remember of the first book... was pretty good. :p

    I've read 1-5 (Midnight something or other) a few years ago but haven't read the later books ... yet

    They were pretty good ~ trouble is too many good books & too little time to read them all :(

    You're right Elladan my friend, there's just not enough hours in a day to read all of the good books out there ;)

    Oh don't forget to check out the sketch of the T'lan Imass Onos T'oolan in my other thread ;)

    What did you think about the Onos T'oolan sketch that I put on the thread "George R.R. Martin, Steven Erikson, Roger Zelazny"?

    I read the first book and enjoyed it, though I really like to understand what is happening, and I couldn't with his style of writing. Tried to read the second one, but with those two new characters (can't remember their name/race) it was hard to get into it. I plan on tackling it once final exams are done or maybe I'll just switch to the third book.

    Yeah, he writes... Phoetic. :p I kinda like his style, though I haven't read more than the first book (I know, geez :p), so perhaps I'll just give up in the middle of the second ^^;

    And Khan, that's a brilliant scetch! :eek: :cool: truly wonderful!

    True = book 2 does catch you off guard - but persavear, some of the characters from book 1 make a reappearance - and you know that idea of good and bad? Well good luck working out who is what - infact I don't think there are any at this stage

    Wonderful piece of art! Just how I picture them! Looks even better than those on the cover of the british version(?) of "house of chains"! Brilliant!
