Good piece of information indeed, Galin. And Rachel, I kind of knew the book wouldn't be to your liking. I, however, can't cease to love it for all that darkness and sadness it contains.
After all, I've my own darker thoughts that I inflict upon my works from time to time, though lately, I've been re-discovering my past writing interests and fantasy themes. But those thoughts only exist, 'cause I - in a way - believe to the darkness and the light and that those two must be kept in balance at all costs.
So, in order to keep the darkness at balance, I let it affect what I write. Lately, I've noticed that the method works quite well in writing of our band's lyrics.
But in the light of this new course of fantasy, I thought that I might pass on re-reading TCOH and go for The Unfinished Tales instead. It's been a while I read those through. And from what I remember, it's going to be a sweet read.
Though I'm still at the beginning of my journey towards Lovecraftian madness supreme, so I'll finish the task at hand in order to proceed further.
