Well isn't this just fan-f'n-tastic

I always had my suspicions. It was always subtle and just beneath the surface. I expected better craft than this.

I'm about three chapters in to book 7 of the Malazan series and Erikson has given up on playing it straight. He'd descended into full-on Canadian Twat Lefty Wet-Dream Political Allegory Theater. A group of Letherii calling themselves the "Patriotists" is running rough-shod over the local populous searching for political dissidents and torturing/disappearing academics and intellectuals.

This better improve quickly or I'll burn the fucking thing in effigy. Christ, how many people have I recommended this to by now? I'm going to have a lot of apologies to write.

1 I started that one today. (OTOH, we're talking about a series where there are hot and cold running unstoppable-barbarian-forces-of-nature. I'm holding out for more Karsa.)

2 Yeah. Whatever comes to pass between Rhulad, Karsa and Icarium should (should) be epic.

I'm hoping for a lot more Tehol and Bugg. Those two crack me up. Their relationship is even more amusing after the revelation at the end of 5.

3 About halfway through the book now. Ho ho ho!

Tehol and Bugg, indeed. And more Malazan marines, which always makes a book better.

4 I'm only about 240 pages in at this point. I tend to read just before bed, and now I get Pavlovian drowsiness whenever I try to sit down and chew through a big chunk of pages.
