Donaldson, Stephen -- The Runes of the Earth
No mockery please. Donaldson has always been a good storyteller, and
his writing has gotten a lot better. Linden Avery is not a whiner. As
others note, this is more setup than anything else, but the series
should end up being a solid piece of work in, um, 2010 or so.
