Z Mgy Zrodzony Br?

Z Mgy Zrodzony Br

Ummm....What? Anyone have any brilliant ideas on this one? Apparently it's by Brandon, and published by Polish books. And, apparently, the title isn't polish. So my question is: How did it get on amazon? Or does it actually exist?

I guess we could always do like way of kings and just make up a plot for it and review it...

I don't think it's by OUR Brandon.  I found the title again somewhere else under 'Nanotechnology.'

Well, then obviously it is a hybrid sci-fi/fantasy set in an alternate universe of Earth slightly after the present day where nanotechnology gives people the power of magic. Or Allomancy. The Allomancy part was mistranslated out of the Polish, lol.

I thought that much was clear! :P

I may just write a fake review of it...

Oh SNAP, I'm an Allomancer.

Of course, I was just googling it, and it came up with this article about parks in peril right after the title...

I think I'm just going to wait like a week, see if any new information or reviews appear, and if not, I'll probably write a fake review.

I don't know...Maybe Brandon's taken an interest in Nanotechnology and National Parks Recently and decided to write a book.

no, the title is obviously a hidden clue! Unscramble the words and you get...Z Ymg Rodzonz Rb. It definitely means "Hero of Ages" in Swahili.

Um, Swahili sounds nothing like that.  Little do you know about Bantu language phonetics! :)

I would wager my mud and grass hut that I know more about Bantu languages than anyone else on this board.

I'm beginning to "dought" you're spelling skills, green. Spellcheck is your friend.

Sarah: Seeing as I don't even know what classifies a language as being a Bantu language, I would guess you definitely know more than me.

Green: You know...Master ditch diggers shouldn't challenge brave peasants. I mean, all too often, those brave peasants end up having axes, and all you've got to defend yourself with your shovel...not pretty.

I'm pretty sure that the code is in Hungarian. I have no knowledge of the Hungarian language, but I'd wager I could spot Hungarian code a mile away. . . I'm pretty sure the translation is something more like "Hero of Ages pushed back to Spring 2009"

*Stabs Dangerbutton*

I feel better now...yes. Although it's interesting that the other amazon page and brandon's website don't reflect the change.

You know your right. My spelling abilities do lack every now and then. I was honestly confused for a second there. I read you'r post and didn't remember writing that stuff. Good move.
