  1. Dear Wilson, I remember only too well your regular updates about Robert Jordan and am greatly saddened to hear that you too have to face a terrible disease. I wish you all the very, very best. I am lucky; I have successfully (fingers crossed) fought off lymphoma in the past, twice.

  4. I'm afraid that I really did not like Bakker's work at all. I bought and read all three parts of the Prince of Nothing trilogy and my final conclusion was "what a waste of time, money and quite simply life". The prose was heavy, the plot overcooked, but most damningly of all there was not a single character about whom I cared. Bakker seems to believe that everything has to be dark, miserable and lacking in any degree of hope or joy. Perhaps others may enjoy the degree of cynicism and nastiness in these books, but for me this was a turn off. I tried, I really tried (hence the purchase of al
