    Thanks for the recommendation! Esselmont's writing style initially put me off, so I never really got into any of his stuff. Glad to hear he's improved. I'll keep an eye out for Dancer's Lament and Deadhouse Landing.

    I know you're a fan of Malazan... have you read anything outside of the main series?

    I tried Ian C. Esselmont's companion series. I liked the first entry, but couldn't get through the next book.

    He's now writing a separate trilogy focusing on Cotillion and Shadowthrone, called 'Path to Ascendancy.'

    He's improved his writing greatly, and has learned that his best style is just a linear narrative. I highly recommend you give 'Dancer's Lament' and 'Deadhouse Landing' a try if you have any time for leisure reading. They are quick and enjoyable, and do a good job of building on the Malazan universe. It's also fun to read about Kellanved and Cotillion before they became what they are in Erikson's main series.

    (The trilogy finale, 'Kellanved's Reach,' drops on April 2.)

    Erikson is also writing a Karsa Orlong trilogy right now. Hype.
