The Price of Our Sins

And here's yet another trailer, this one called "The Price of Our Sins."

(I told you I'd fallen way behind).

For more, do visit the HBO website. You'll find all these trailers there, along with all sorts of other cool behind-the-scenes videos, and character profile pieces on Robb, Joffrey, Renly, and other characters.

The Other
George, I have come to bring your attention to a matter of some importance. Rothfuss is good, but can't compete with you yet. We both know that. We indulge the idea as we would a young child.

There is one who can.

Steven Erikson's Malazan Series is ranked #2 on bestfantasybooks.com. You're #1. Rothfuss is #3.

Erikson is the one you need to watch out for. Rothfuss is still a young upstart. Erikson writes with your maturity. And I dare say there is nothing he wants more than your crown. While you are of necessity distracted by your own successes, he toils in a bare room perfecting his craft.

If there was a "crown," Jack Vance would be wearing it. The greatest living fantasist and science fiction writer.

But the great thing about literature is that there is room for many princes (and princesses). This is a golden age for epic fantasy, Rothfuss, Erikson, Abercrombie, Abraham, Scott Lynch, Robin Hobb, so many more... there are riches all around, and good books coming out every week.

Re: The Other
If I should start reading Jack Vance, where should I begin? Considering that I loved Rothfuss and GRRM, I think we have common groud, and I am probably going to love Jack Vance but he has a couple of series - The Dying Earth, Lyonesse, The Demon Princes Series, The Cadwal Chronicles, etc. or some of his non-series books ?

Re: The Other
Depends on whether you enjoy both fantasy and science fiction, or just fantasy, or just SF, or...

The Demon Prince series (five books) is a great great read. The Planet of Adventure series (four books) is also terrific. Both of those are SF, however.

For fantasy, the Dying Earth sequence is marvelous, although it begins with a short story collection (THE DYING EARTH) that is not to everyone's taste (though I think it's bloody gorgeous myself). The Lyonesse trilogy is a more classic fantasy trilogy, and also first rate.

Re: The Other
Thank you for the advice.

Now thinking about it, I just realized that I've never read sci-fi. I like watching science fiction (tv shows or movies) but I've not tried any sci-fi book. Will I like it? Will I not? The Demon Prince would be my next fiction series. Hmm, yes.

And Dying Earth sounds different enough from what I've read that I am probably going to like it.
Anyway, my point was ... thanks.
