    Read the Dosadi experiment:

    A *large* fraction of the book deals with legal niceties. Some of the best parts of the book are the legal issues whic are *not* boring.

  2. I have my quibbles with The Wise Man’s Fear (mostly relating to pacing), but it was indeed a fantastic read. I would have loved to have seen Pat’s portrayal of the trial in more depth, but the book was already long and I can understand how that probably would have been inadvisable.

    By the way, how about the recent announcement from GRRM? Let the countdown begin. Plus this spring brings The White Luck Warrior, and I think The Republic of Thieves is supposed to be out some time this spring, though I keep reading contradictory information. It’s a good time to be reading fantasy.

    As with the shipwreck scene, I think he has written those scenes, and that they perhaps would surface in short story form.
