I‘m still very much on the fence about The Stars are Legion and therefore need some help deciding if I should buy The Light Brigade.

I've now begun The Vorrh, by Brian Catling. There's a foreword by Alan Moore which I didn't read because, as you might expect, it's half the size of the book
That's an interesting approach, I'll keep it in the back of my mind! I'm nearly halfway and am enjoying it far more than the first time and definitely more than The Dispossessed. It's a very different style from the trendy doorstoppers of today (more Broken Sword than LOTR), but it's sort of a perfect contrast to the Tad Williams I just finished.I've always felt, when reading A Wizard of Earthsea, which by the way I love, is that the main character is not Ged so much as it is Earthsea itself.
Even when not sequential, the idea of jumping into the middle of series gives me the shivers. I'm still annoyed that they re-numbered the Narnia books!It might pay to star with the first one, then (Raise the Titanic). I found that the subsequent books get weaker and stuck on jingoistic BS, so I stopped reading them after a few.
Yeah you're correct, Daniel H Wilson wrote it, allegedly based on notes left by Michael CrichtonSurely someone else finished it for him since he has passed away years ago, maybe that's why it's bad?
I felt much the same way when I saw 1917 several weeks back. The real star of the movie wasn't one of those two guys sent on that mission, it was No Man's Land. I felt like I was watching high quality video from another world.It was actually Tad Williams who told me (not me personally, he was teaching a one day class on writing the fantasy novel and I was part of the class) that in fantasy sometimes the setting is one of the main characters. It made so much sense, fit a number of books so perfectly, that I remembered it, and later came to the conclusion that with some books the setting is THE main character.
