I don't trust that book. Looks too much like Book of Mormon. Not that I have anything against those particular religionists, I just don't like the idea of giving Lord Foul's Bane a Biblefeel to it. Th ...

They will come to Kiril Threndor, and I will teach them things to darken their souls. It is fitting. There Kevin met and dared me in his despair. And I accepted. The fool! I could hardly speak the wor ...

Lots of people wearing camp masks and a ton of gun violence.
Plenty of American navel-gazing.
Loved the graphic novel, but I don't think I'll be able to persist with the Lindelof show.

As the son of a Missionary Man, Donaldson's relationship with religion has seemingly taken an ambivalent if not outright skeptical stance since early in his writing career.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books, as lurch mentioned the writing is quite pared down, and yet it is still unmistakably Donaldson.

Estie will simply replicate them and let them out into the world to be ...
