  • Help! Quick question: information needed re Runestaff

    Can anyone provide me with the name of the 'brother' of the Warrior in Jet and Gold? I'm writing a review up of 'The History of the Runestaff' (for posting later) and because I don't actually have the book(s) to hand, I'm unable to establish if it's Orlando Flack as I seem to recall or whether I'm mis-remembering it (very probably, knowing me :)).

    Cheers,
    David

    PS Where should reviews ideally be posted? Here or Tanelorn?

    _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
    _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
    _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

      Thanks, Ant.

      (Well, I was close, but no wonder I couldn't Google him. :D)

        I just wanted to point out that Orland of the Staff exiled Nuin Who Knew All in ELRIC OF MELNIBONE.
        The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

          That from memory, Berry? I'm impressed!

          Book Three, Chapter 2: "In the City of Ameeron". I just rifled through to find it!

          It occurs to me that Orland Fank may be an anagram... Frank <something>... :?: :?: :?:
