Lady Maelin I was looking over some of the amazing artwork you have posted in the Exhibit Hall. Are you a professional artist?

Re: The last book of the ninth pass

I would like to see the storylines finished up. Skies ended in a way that left so much open ended that it really does need a sequel. What happens to F'lessan and Golianth? Toric? Etc.?

Re: New book

I really was hoping there would be at least one more after SoP - just to complete that story, if nothing else. There were too many loose threads (no pun intended). I do not like an incomplete story!

Re: Larsdahl

I just finished rereading. In my book he is only referred to as Lars, Lars Dahl (with space) and GuildMaster.

Guess it really was just a typo.

It was an interesting theory though.
