Though, to be honest, Dave's quote was pretty much a given.  He promised he'd give one.

The real question will be to see if anyone else quotes for me.

All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Quote Number Two!


While every new fantasy author is hailed as unique, new, and different, Brandon Sanderson's ELANTRIS does indeed provide an absorbing adventure in a unique, different, and well-thought-out fantasy world, with a few nifty twists as well.

Excellent. You passed your own definition for the test.  ;)

This new quote is a little weird--saying something is done a lot and then doing it again is always awkward--but it's definitely not a bad thing.

well, he's not sayign "it's done a lot" he's saying, unfortunately, it's said a lot, but this time it's TRUE.

Plus he said "nifty"

You want a Russian copy of ELANTRIS as your reward for inspiring a character in MISTBORN?  Or, do you want to wait for MISTBORN to be published?

One passion of life: Completed.

What I mean EUOL, is that why are you offering me Mistborn now, when that most likely won't be out until 06, or 07? And Elantris will be out by 05.
