I started up SRD's new series last month. So far I've been enjoying it. The whole idea of magic + rifles is kinda cool. And I love that the pacing is so much better than the Last Chronicles. I'm waiting for some interesting characters though. So far everyone has been pretty boring, minus the prince.

Sad that there's so little discussion for the series here. I guess online book discussion is dead? Oh well, I guess the Watch had a pretty good 20 year run. Wink

Don't sell us short, Jay.

Yes, discussion and dissection of earlier series is not as broadly participatory as it once was, but you will see a fair amount of commentary about The War Within, which the book totally deserves. There is lots of anticipation for The Last Repository and the culmination of the tale SRD is telling.

Meanwhile, Cord Hurn has relentlessly moved forward the long-stalled dissection of the Gap series, completing the chapters of Forbidden Knowledge and planning for the dissection of A Dark and Hungry God Arises.

Consider also how certain Watchers lurk in Facebook groups that draw SRD fans and those susceptible to SRD's themes, and guide those folks to visit here.

We are trying to keep it alive. Your positivity can help.

Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

Sorry, good point. Not trying to be negative. Just my tongue-in-cheek humor.

After the way "negativity" was treated during the LC discussion, I have absolutely no intention of joining a discussion about this book here. You guys wanted lively participation? You shouldn't have chased away people who disagreed with you.

Jay can't even joke about this without being chastised about "negativity." The Positive Comments Only Police are too zealous in their enforcement and personal attacks for my taste.

Have fun talking to yourselves! I hope the series is good. I might give it a try someday, if I can find it in a bargain bin somewhere. I haven't read a single comment by anyone here that makes me want to rush out and buy it.

Lead back to the earth the virtue that flew away, as I do-back to the body, back to life, that it may give the earth a meaning, a human meaning. -Nietzsche

To be fair, it's people like you that make me never want to go in the Tank again. Big Grin It's all relative.
