This is it bro. If you want to read Malazan read this first then go back and read the first book, it was written ten years before it was published and completely incomprehensible to newfags

Commercial fiction has produced absolutely nothing of value, and its transition into a trailer park for faggots is probably an improvement.

The Broken Sword
>>20794599
I doubt you read much of anything if that's your grand analysis of literature and "commercial fiction" which is funny considering the majority of the so-called "canon(s)" are shilled by the Big Five and academia to make you buy their books and critical introductions, monographs, as well as companions.

Lyonesse trilogy is probs the only good fantasy I've found so far, and I've tried BotNS and Gormenghast. BotNS is an overrated meme and Gormenghast is just alright.
