Long Live Mother Dark!

The Forge of Darkness by Steven Erikson.

I talk about Forge of Darkness as Erikson's thought experiment over at Tor.com because I really do think that is what it is. I mentioned a while ago that I'd read it for Tor.com & I finally finished chewing on my thoughts. Erikson is an interesting case. Malazan is his roleplaying setting, so as some one deeply invested in his own campaign setting I feel a certain kinship; similarly, Erikson studied to be an anthropologist, which is what I studied in college. We go in widely different directions, but I have a certain sympathetic eye for what he's doing. Forge of Darkness is his Silmarillion-esque trilogy. I'm curious what he does with it.
