I didnt see a thread on this one , and the injustice of that fact left me haunted. Like many of his previous works it begins with an introduction of characters , though not in the fashion to which we have been made acustom. It then descends into a beautiful, catastrophe, of sex, violence, and deeply disturbing humour. I loved it . Simultaneous stimulation to both funny bone, and gag reflex, with a lesson. No I didnt say moral, morals have no place in this long winded , if all too short telling. If it seems like I'm gushing over this novella, this writer, and his talent, Iam and thats part of the lesson.

I dont believe sequence to be crucial, at least as far as these novellas go. I would dig right in.

I was looking at this the other day, while browsing in B&N with Xar. I haven't read the other collection of novellas about those guys, so didn't get it yet. But does it say who the Sisters are? I was skimming through, hoping to see.

Ive enjoyed these novellas very much. My only regret is that the characters of Bauchelain, and Korbal Broach only made a brief appearance in the main story line. However it sounds as though there will be more novellas to come. Their particular brand of evil is just so much fun, as for the Sisters , their identity remains a mystery at least to me.

Enjoyed it even more on the second read. Avas Diddion Flicker deserves a spot in the main storyline. I'm hoping for something in Eriksons upcoming works.
