    R. Scott Bakker's The Second Apocalypse

    Hi all, new here. I couldn't find a general thread that wasn't outdated. Any fans/haters that would be interested in discussing this fantastic series (my opinion might be biased)?

    R Scott Bakker - The Darkness that Comes Before

    Any R Scott Bakker fans here? I've just started reading The Darkness that comes before and am finding it difficult to get through. The opening sentence I find completely confusing and nonsensical: "One cannot raise walls against what has been forgotten" Say what? If it's been forgotten, why...

    Criticism of R. Scott Bakker's Prince of Nothing

    Hello. I just recently finished The Thousandfold Thought, the last book of R. Scott Bakker's Prince of Nothing series. The series was good, but had a number of flaws that detracted from my enjoyment of it. So I feel the need to make a thread a whine about it. Warning: Will contain story...

    R. Scott Bakker Update

    R. Scott Bakker has given a new interview here. He confirms several things: The Aspect-Emperor will indeed be a trilogy, not a duology as previously planned. The Great Ordeal was just a working title. The first two books are currently called The Judging Eye and The Shortest Path. The Judging...

    Release info: Martin, Bakker, Erikson, Keyes & Rothfuss

    Locus Online are now postulating a June 2008 release date for A Dance with Dragons (Book 5 of A Song of Ice and Fire) by George RR Martin. Locus only release dates, even tenuous ones, when they get information from the publisher, in this case probably Bantam US (remember that the UK publishers...

    From another thread: This comment made me so curious that I went out and bought "The Prince of Nothing" trilogy. The synopses on the book covers look quite intriquing, and the quotes by reviewers on the books make them look quite promising - as well as comments here, and reviews on amazon's...

    Favorite author among Jordan/Martin/Bakker/Erikson?

    I'm quite new to fantasy literature, been reading mostly technical stuff and wanted something completely different :) I've read Tolkien's books way in the past and was looking for fresh material, I've been recommended these 4 authors but I was curious who would come out on top in a poll. If you...

    R. Scott Bakker

    I noticed this author is missing from the list and have difficulty comprehending why? I've only just read his first novel; The Darkness that Comes Before, but it brings much to the table. The Dunyain are a concept I've been craving for a very long time, and Bakker does an excellent job. I...
