For some life became a bit brighter a few days ago with the release of Megan Whalen Turner‘s A Conspiracy of Kings. I was one of the fortunate ones to read this book early, but now that it is out it is great fun to read the commentary about it, especially at the fan site, sounis. And I just noticed a spoilerish post asking for theories about what would happen next. You mean it won’t all end on a train station twenty years later with a bunch of kids? Let me phrase that again, “It won’t all end on a train station twenty years later with a bunch of kids? Please?” Seriously — for those who are into this series, some fun speculations.
