] I actually think there is a little more more meat & slightly better prose in the later work,
No, no, no! That couldn't be so: no one can equal my Lymond :) Nevah!
but according to the web site, the 6 volumes currently out aren't the end of it, and you may prefer to wait a few years for the last 2 to make it. Of course, the darn thing is so long, if you start now you might be in the perfect position by the time they do (-:
True. It would be good to wait for all of them, but you know about the road to hell...
] Still, it's hard to know what to follow up the chronicles with--I just finished them the first weekend in Nov. I've got
Quiet flows the Don & Mason & Dixon on tap, but it sort of feels like Faulkner time of year. (Austen time of year, OTOH, is late spring to early summer (-: )
I'd think Faulkner time is during midsummer. Or maybe it's all that heat in "As I lay dying". But certainly, if you read it in winter, it won't feel as cold :)
But I can't think of anything to follow Lymond Chronicles. They are so diff. from anything else, and I loved them so much. Maybe another reread is in order...
