Fans of epic fantasy are master’s of patience. They have to be. There’s something in the nature of the genre that forces its masters — Tolkein, of course, George RR Martin, and, for a long time, Robert Jordan — to create worlds and plot lines of jaw-dropping proportions. But I am not a master of patience and, to a certain extent, I resent the genre for its 20 year production cycles. That’s why, for the past ten years, I’ve been avoiding Steven Erikson, the latest and possibly greatest to enter the fray.
