I completely forget that the new Guy Gavriel Kay was being released this month. Official release date is January 8th but my local store already has it out. How could I have missed it in the store today? Maybe they’re keeping it on the down low until the Boxing Week 30% off all hardcovers sale ends. That better not be it because I’ll be there tomorrow demanding a copy.
Screw contextualist criticism, I need Ysabel! I highly recommend the interview: the interviewer focuses on Kay’s work rather than dumb questions on his pets or whether he writes with pen & paper or computer. Guy Gavriel Kay is an intelligent author, able to explore his ideas elegantly with a distinctive style that makes him one of the premiere fantasy writers (although most of his work isn’t “fantasy” per se, as is explained in the interview).
