    Not being stabbed, finding my car keys, Shiny things, starring at stuff, finding money on the street, and ugly kittens.
  1. *Full Disclosure, I have bashed Goodkind so many times I can not count them.* My friend and I were discussing genre writing in general the other day, we eventual got around to Goodkind, I immediately launched into a hate speech. But my friend had another theory which proved interesting. Here goes: Terry Goodkind is a master Satirist. Stephen Colbert has nothing on him and like Andy Kauffman he refuse to break character. No person in this world could possibly be as obtuse as Terry. Goodkind established Wizards first rule in the first book, "people fear what they believe to be true" Good
  2. Its a good possibility that no one will have this "Memory". With RJ's use of ambiguous titles it could be an obscure reference to passage from a book, or saying (tPoD CoT).
  3. I have to wonder if he is feeling a bit daunted. I know the man is an absolute professional and has worked in the business for 40 some odd years, and IMO he is the best fantasy cover artist in the genre, but I don't know if he has ever made a cover for such a well established fan base or had to try to please a fan base as rabid as ours is, not to mention having to sit in DKS's shadow for this book.
  4. Its nice to have a date and all, but I cant be too happy we still have 11 months to go, color me nonplussed.
  5. Oh no the ISAM link is back, now I have to go read it all again.
  6. That gives me an idea for a promotional campaign. One free beer with every copy of tEotW. I know I would buy one.
  7. Well I have been dieing for new wot covers for a long time now. So on that note, yay! But the art for TEOTW is the most under whelming of all the ebook covers, and now that the art is just a thumbnail. If tor wants to release all of the books again that's fine, but they dropped the ball here IMO, for some of the ebook covers this layout will work fine (tDR for example) but it wont work for some of the other one's (LoC). Also why only release the first 3, in the summer, tor should be releasing all of these books in a span of a couple months. Year of the Dragon my but, more like Year of the unde
  8. In regards to the Horn. I remember reading somewhere (don't ask me where I cant remember)that the horn was actually made to call musicians and during one age it was changed so that it called the Hero's in T'a'r. I agree with Majsju and Tom, that it is not need for the confrontation between the Dragon and the Dark One.
  9. Yhea, I can not even begin to broach that subject with you. But rest assured she has something important to do.
  10. I have a Wheel of Time sticker on my bumper, I have gotten a few honks and waves from it, one guy shouted "For the Golden Crane" at me at a stop light once.
  11. While I agree Mangin's death was well done. I remember what I took away form this was that Rand orders this mans death for breaking the laws he set down. But when the Cara'carn's justice was handed out he did not have the guts to witness the execution himself. I was very disappointed in Rand by this in-action, for me it was one of the first signs that Rand was not ready for the responsibility of leadership. All things being equal it was a brilliant piece of story telling.
  12. Well Ivory usually comes from elephants, but it doesn't have to, many animals tusks are Ivory. Also I figure if the Ivory came from anywhere it came from Shara.
  13. Congratulations on catching up, now you really get to find out how awesome RJ was. Go back and reread each book and you will literally be blown away by how much you missed the first time through. Heck just go back and reread the prologue to the Eye of the World, and you will see what I mean. If you do the reread whats also funny is your opinions on each character will change (except Mat, post dagger Mat is always awesome on any reread)
  14. Well my opinion of Fain is that he will be the deciding factor in resealing the bore. I think he will be (or at least his power) what Rand needs to use to touch the Dark One without re-tainting Saidin. The thing I find most frightening about him has nothing to do with the story itself but from what Harriet said about him. I have no idea where the quote is (I just looked couldn't find it)but what she said was that she could always tell when RJ had been writing him because his demeanor changed. Thats a bit frightening IMO. The reason he does not get discussed much anymore, is because he has
