I am in the midst of Memories of Ice (the third time I have tried reading this book). I am finally starting to figure this series out a little. I found it very frustrating, but the disparate pieces are finally coming together enough that I am getting an outline of the Malazan universe. One day, I will re-read, and I am sure it will make much more sense.
Martin and Wurts are waaaaay easier to comprehend, and for that reason, I like them better, but Erikson is really starting to get interesting.
Now back to our regular programming...
Okay, I appreciate that GRRM is underselling. From my personal perspective, and notwithstanding the howling of the impatient masses, I'd rather not hear anything from him until he says "Manuscript submitted to publisher". Just my own preference. I can ignore the lack of ADWD until then.
