Here ends the Tenth and Final Tale of the Malazan Book of the Fallen. What a ride!
Our worlds are so small. They only feel endless because our minds can gather thousands of them all at once. But if we stop moving, if we hold to one place, if we draw breath and look around...each one is the same. Barring a few details. Lost ages are neither more nor less profound than the one we live in right now. We think it's all some kind of forward momentum, endless leaving behind and reaching towards. But the truth is, wherever we find ourselves--with all its shiny gifts--we do little more than walk in circles. (Steven Erikson, The Crippled God, p. 786)Reading List 2015-06-01:
