More shameless self-promotion... posted 24 May 2004, 16:05 by Cu'jara Cinmoi, Author of Prince of Nothing

I just found an interview with some joker named Ray Scott Bakker at [url:8wtk7b17]http://members.lycos.co.uk/falcatatimes/siteindex.html[/url:8wtk7b17]... Just for the record, the 'R' stands for 'Richard' - or as my fiancee likes to remind me from time to time, 'Dick.' view post

Interesting that you mentioned Dune as the book you would most like to rewrite. That is one of the few books that i feel would not need changing all that much if you were given the opporunity to have a crack at redoing it. I know what you mean about seeing possibilites in books that the author missed though. There are quite a few i would love to get my hands on and be able to rewrite. The WOT series probably being at the top of that list. Even though it has its flaws (and quite a lot of them), it does have a lot of promise that the author never really lived up to. I think you could cut out alot of the crap and run off on different tangents with some parts and still condense the series in half. Then again, perhaps it wouldnt work. Im not sure i could work with a series that had some much duality in it (creator/darkone, male/female halfs of the source etc) without pulling the foundations of it apart :) view post

You mention the Online Writers Workshop, but a google search comes up with a fair few of those. Which one, specifically, are you on about? view post

I wouldn't touch [i:mdxdgzum]Dune[/i:mdxdgzum] either, Replay! It's the sequels I mentioned. The workshop I referred to is [url:mdxdgzum]http://sff.onlinewritingworkshop.com/[/url:mdxdgzum]... view post
