Paksenarrion, Elizabeth Moon - Ed's journal
Paksenarrion, Elizabeth Moon
Some of you may know that I'm a big fan of Elizabeth Moon's books.
Indeed, the 'Deed of Pakesennarrion' hold something of a unique distinction in my 'library' of being one of only a few books I've bought multiple copies of.
That stands it next to Dune (Frank Herbert), Player of Games (Iain M Banks) and ... erm. Actually, that's about it. (actually, now that I think on it, I do actually have Lord of the Rings a second time, too - paperbacks and hardback, but 'Deed' stands out because I own 3.5 copies - 2 trade paperbacks, one copy of the first in the series, and an ebook)

Anyway, if you haven't read it, go read it. It's a beautifully done high fantasy. Amazon Link

But that aside, whilst you may already know that, what you may not know, is that the illustrious Elizabeth Moon also has a Livejournal - e_moon60

Also, another book (series of books) set in the 'Paksennarion Universe is in progress'. Some of the interesting 'background' stuff is being fed via: http://www.paksworld.com/
(syndicated to LJ as paksworld)

The content is ... well, I'm finding it a fascinating insight into some of the characterisation. Even if the title does make me think a bit too much of Rimmerworld

I must look her up....

Sounds like a good read.

Unfortuantly now I don't have 1+1/2 hours of train travel to read in my reading time is a lot more limited

Always interested in books that come very highly recommended. Since you have so many copies, I may ask to borrow one sometime.

Read the series a few years ago when I was on crutches (broke leg larping, but I did fall really convincingly from being shot).

I'll investigate when I'm not at work.
