This guy is great. If you haven't considered reading his stuff, you should do. If you have considered it, get a move on and READ!!!

Here's an interview to whet your apetite in the mean time :)

He has some very interesting views on modern fantasy in general, and towards the end theres a very long answer about prejudices in and towards fantasy which is enlightening to read, even if you have no intention of reading the Prince of Nothing series...

Oddly I've interacted with him elsewhere (it all started with me calling him a Nazi:eek: ) and he certainly seems a very intelligent and knowledgable man with some intriguing ideas about the nature of fantasy as a reaction against modernity. Really ought to read his stuff too!

Hmmm, I would never have expected that, Knivesout. :D
