    Does it follow that I reject all authority? Perish the thought. In the matter of boots, I defer to the authority of the boot-maker.

        Hmm, conclusion to a trilogy vs the start of a trilogy...

        I actually think that Knight is the weakest of the Swords Trilogy and about on par with Masters so since I scored them both a 7/10 in my reviews on this site I'm going to go with Masters a) because as an ending it's more satisfying and b) I suspect everyone else will vote for Knight.
        _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
        _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."

              TKotS got my vote. One of the very first MM books I read (which explains my love of Corum) and how good to see Arioch get some.
              You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.
