    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.

      Absolutely VG!
      I love the way it comes together in the end.

        Tough. Really Tough. But I had to go for pure MIND BLOWING (ala King of the Swords) over gorgeously reimagined Celtic myth.

          Oak & Ram. En route to voting a straight Corum ticket, here.

            Corum, for the same reason as match 7.

              Had to go with The Quest for Tanelorn, something really, really special about it.

              Corum still incredible! (just liked the other a fraction more)

                Gone for Corum, as I found QfT, Sailor on the Seas, etc all a bit samey, and probably betraying the speed with which they were written.

                  For that big scene at the end (and yes, ignoring some less-than-ideal build-up work), the Quest continues...

                    Having just voted for the final book of the second Corum trilogy over the first book of the Castle Brass trilogy, it's time to turn the tables and vote for the final volume of the CB trilogy over the first volume of the Corum 2 trilogy.

                    _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."
