Quote of the Day

… conquered peoples live and die with the knowledge that survival does not suffer honour. They have chosen shame over the pyre, the slow flame for the quick.

- R. SCOTT BAKKER, The Judging Eye

I've decided to post a few quotes from Bakker's newest in the coming weeks. For more info about this title: Canada, USA, Europe

I just finished the first book of The Prince of Nothing series. I wish I would have known about Bakker sooner. Fantastic stuff.

Think of it this way: the later you discover an author, the more of their novels you can read without waiting over a year for them to publish a new one ;)

Yeah, just read the first trilogy all in a row, did the same thing last year with reading 8 Erikson books and 3 of his novellas within about 6 months - bliss!

I would like this comment more if it didn't sound something like Goodkind would say if he possessed poetic skills.

Hang on, maybe Scott based Kellhus on Goodkind?
