Pequena biografia
Steven Erikson se ve skutečnosti jmenuje Steve Rune Lundin. Pseudonym si zvolil podle rodného jména své matky, milovnice dobrodružných románů. Narodil se v kanadském Torontu v roce 1959. Vystudoval paleontologii a 18 let jezdil po vykopávkách v Jižní a Střední Americe. Tak poznal i svou ženu. Spolu se přestěhovali do Anglie, kde však nemohl najít odpovídající místo, takže byl nucen vykonávat různé kancelářské práce. S těmi mohl praštit až ve chvíli, kdy jeho Měsíční zahrady sklidily obrovský úspěch. Autorova popularita má i svou příjemnou stranu – patří k nejlépe placeným autorům tohoto žánru. Nyní se věnuje pouze psaní, jeho cyklus Malazská Kniha padlých má už osm dílů (z plánovaných deseti). Napsal i humornou novelu Potoky krve, popisující dobrodružství nekromantů Korbala a Bauchelaina a jejich lokaje.
Jeho oblíbenými autory jsou například Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum, Stephen King, Glen Cook a Ursula Le Guinová. V oblibě má i RPG hry, vycházející ze systému GURPS. (Fantasy Planet)

Reread of Malazan on Tor.com em FantasyFans (Agosto 2010)


I don't think I have ever suffered through my reading like with this book. It's not like I wasn't warned. I went in fully invested and finally gave in to my FOMO of not reading Erikson before.

Some moments were great, some insane imagery, and unforgettable scenes that only great fantasy can achieve. There is a larger-than-life story here, many interesting characters, and an incredible, detailed world full of magic.

But, for a reader to enjoy these elements they need to be measured, introduced at the right time and be meaningful to the plot. This novel goes heavily in medias res, as the reader is observing whats going on through the eyes of the characters. This is not a problem in itself, but there is so much redundancy in this novel. I'd even call it bad editing.

I am very well aware that many fantasy readers love this approach, the same way many people like their food with "everything on it". I just don't.

I came across a sort of companion/guide somewhere on forums that had some maps and chapter summaries. It was incredibly helpful because many things you really don't get merely by reading the text. At least not chronologically on your first read. This is a red flag for me. You shouldn't need to have a companion or even take extensive notes in order to understand what is going on. But, in a weird way, it felt satisfying, just very exhausting.

I've been told that this book is the worst in the series and that I shouldn't give up just yet. I may read the second one when I feel patient enough. It better be good!

This series is a lot of work. I stuck with it through the end because I don’t believe in not finishing a book once I start, even if it is 10 books in one. But I hated the process with a vengeance. I usually enjoy large series and have read Wheel of Time or Sword of Truth in about three months each. This series, which is shorter than WoT, took me an entire six months because I really had to force myself to even read a couple of pages. It is really hard to feel anything for the characters, if you don’t read regularly and all in one go you will lose track of all of the different characters and time frames going on and it is incredibly dark. For most of the books, I found the first three quarters tough going and then enjoyed the ending when some plot lines usually cleared up. I also enjoyed the end of the entire series which I thought was well done. But I cannot for the life of me understand all the raving reviews for these books.… (mais)

Two years, and a lot of falling asleep, I'm finally done this book. I only finished it so I could say I'd done it. Happy now, Dan?
