  1. I’m glad I introduced you to it:) It really is a fantastic series; a great story, wonderful characters and most importantly some absolutely fantastic writing.

    Wheel of Time, in comparison, fits the other extreme; unbalanced, poor writing, labourious, childish and utterly unoriginal (and I say all that, despite having read and bought every book in the series as yet). It’s a fun read but I wouldn’t even really mention them in the same breath.

    Robin Hobb probably comes closest but the two are really as different as orange and apples.

    I guess Mr Martin has set the bar too high.

    Sadly I agree; the series has really spoilt me. Maybe I should write something on this…

  2. I only mentioned the Wheel of Time series because it’s another example of epic fantasy that I’ve read. I enjoyed the it to start with but it seems to have lost it’s way in the more recent books, the same goes for the Sword of Truth series actually.

    Thanks for the congrats – I noticed Css Thesis in my referrer logs the other day. I think someone has submitted me to Unmatched Style as well, since I got about 100 hits from them at the weekend and can only assume I was on their ‘recently submitted’ list. FWIW I was on Screenspire a couple of days ago as well πŸ™‚

    Now that you’re in there, you can let us in on the big secret: who did you have to bribe to get in there? I’ve got a sack full of money here ready to grease someone’s palms:)

    Seriously speaking now, you deserve it 100%. this is a lovely, elegant and individual design; an inspiration to us all!

  4. I didn’t bribe no-one πŸ™‚

    I’ve always held back from submitting this site to design showcases but when I noticed unmatched style in my referrer logs I figured I’d see if anyone was interested so submitted it to screenspire. A few days later I appeared in cssthesis. I guess they visited screenspire and liked what they saw.

    Just noticed I’m on design shack as well – never even heard of that site before…

  5. It sounds like a good read, I’ll shall try it. I’ve been into the Dan Brown’s. The strories are terribly repetitive but I just can’t ecape them. They haunt me while I sleep, the forcw my tears to weep. Actually, the only time opn of them has made me cry was when I thought I saw Silas at my door *shudders*.
