First thing I did at the airport when I got out of basic was to buy The Wise Man's Fear, absolutely fabulous so far.

The majority of the books I've been waiting for are being released right after I ship out for basic :( I'll have to wait two months after everyone else. On the plus side though, The crippled god is released two weeks after I get out :)

I was about to say read Erickson, heh. His stuff has a hell of a plot but is very world heavy, which you would expect from an archeologist. However to read his books you better adore complex plots and everything that comes with them, including the parts that seem to drag a bit. One of my favorite series but it isn't everyone's cup of tea by far.

Servant of a Dark God was rather well done, however I put the book down a couple of occasions when I found Talen a little too petty and self-righteous.

Everything Else / Re: Mistborn vs. Asha'man

A smart mistborn could win in a ranged fight, they are more mobile and a repeated burst of coins shot like a shotgun hits a rather large area. Hurt someone channeling badly enough and they lose the source. Then one well place shot finishes the deal. However without knowing the opponents abilities in a first time meeting, the mistborn doesn't stand a chance. And even in a ranged fight every Ashaman has a few tricks up their sleeves.

The problem with all of Card's novels is he never learned to write a convincing child. The children reason to well for their age, it doesn't match reality (and before any comes in and starts mentioning oh well Ender was a super-genius, your point? He could regurgitate information but not reason at that age his reasoning skills would still be minimal.)

Anyways I'm reading Poe's short stories and poetry right now and I must say Raven isn't near his best work.

The theory itself isn't entirely absurd the assumption that it is fact, and the amount of certainty that the people supporting it make it seem as if they believe it is fact, IS absurd. Fabrials are powered by spren? Please give me a quote from the book that says this or even remotely supports it. I may have a poor recollection but i can't think of ANY evidence to support that claim, less in fact than the theory that Szeth has an honor spren (which is contrary to everything we know of him and his homeland).

Just bought This Crooked Way (James Enge) and The Epic of Gilgamesh (the Assyrian creation myth that Genesis is argued to have it's roots in)
