|12:54 pm - More amusement !|
(from msagara) Apparently, Eric Idle was fined $5000 for using the F word on air in the US. Go here to hear his response. (Errr, very blatantly not safe for work or polite company)
Meanwhile, the sheep are getting cleverer.
And finally, I am boggled. Stephen Donaldson has apparently caved in, and there will be more Covenant books ("The Runes of the Earth" is the first, coming out in October).
(and my curious brain prompts me to wonder . o O ( Is there any Thomas Covenant fan-fic ? Slash, even ? ). Bad brain :-)
Current Mood: amused
Gotta love Eric Idle :)
Thanks for the link!

Ahem. So you missed my post about Donaldson from a while back?
Apparently I did. *blush*

He got better!
Covenant could come back in any number of ways. I'd presume in this case that someone -- Linden, maybe his son, etc -- ends up in the Land and Covenant either somehow remanifests or at least is a sort of guiding spirit.
It's also not so much that Donaldson CAVED. It's a matter of he always said he COULD do another, but he also made clear he hated being BOTHERED about it, so he basically just refused until people gave up, and then decided to do it on his own terms, which was what he wanted all along.
I'm not sure I want to read the next ones -- Mordant's Need was the best thing Donaldson ever wrote, and I suspect a new Covenant sequence (not trilogy, I think it's 4-5 books) will be a lot grimmer.

Re: He got better!
I looked at his webpage, and as my biggest o_O was the fact that I didn't really think there was much he could do after the Second Chronicles, and he seems to be saying that he'd planned it all along and had left all the leads he needed to write the Last Chronicles throughout the Second ones, but had just waited until he was capable of writing it.
I've absolutely loved everything he's written, so I'll jump up and down and read it anyway. The prologue hooked me almost straight away (oddly enough, most of the Covenant series was like that for me. I didn't so much LIKE it, instead I was hooked on it and couldn't stop reading to find out more) so now I'm all excited.
