Hello, does anyone else have this book. I consider it a must have to fully immerse yourself in The Land.
Saying that, I am halfway through TWL and only just discovered the 'pathway tables' showing the battles and routes. I think the whole book is really well done.
Are there really new maps for the LC and if so, where can I find them.

I have the book club hardback one. It was not available here in the UK probably and got into TCTC after it was released in 1985 so got it on eBay.

Thank you in advance and sorry if this has been talked about before. Wink

I own a paperback copy. It's absolutely brilliant.

I've not gotten around to purchasing her Altlas of the Land, though I often wish I had.

Cord Hurn, I would say that the map in the novels are essential but to get the full enjoyment and to track where on the map they are, with corresponding page index's for the Del Rey novels, a really good way of completely immersing yourself.

Also the pictures of the buildings and layouts, etc., all done with SJD's help and authorisation (correct UK spelling), all the confusion about heights, where stairs are, etc. are all there in black and white.

I just wish there was more for the LC novels. I read somewhere there are new maps but no one one here seems to have the knowledge as to where they are. I might contaci KWF herself.

Thanks. Cool

I appreciate your feedback on this, darthbuzz! I think I would especially appreciate the detailed illustrations about building layouts and heights.

However, I don't think that Karen Wynn Fonstad did any new maps for the Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. Sadly, Fonstad died on March 11 in the year 2005, just a few months after the publication of The Runes Of The Earth. Crying or Very sad If she did any new maps relating to the world of the Land in the time of the Last Chronicles, it would only be for events told in the ROTE book. But, I really, REALLY, don't believe that Karen Wynn Fonstad made any maps for the Last Chronicles at all. (I would be pleased to discover I'm wrong about that!)

I do enjoy these maps in the Laborium (one must be logged in to see them):

Crikey, that is sad indeed. Lucky I didn't try and ask her as to any new maps. Crying or Very sad Embarassed Crying or Very sad
Thank you for letting me know. I will try and find where I read it.

There was a post in the art section, I do believe, with all the important pictures in it but none of the pics were accessible.

I think a lot of the heights and dimensions are described in the books but will do a few photos of the pages in the future if that would help.

I like to share to people that either cannot afford or cannot find things. I have the audio books and have been 'sharing' them. The more that get into TCTC the better imo.
