Ok.. I made my choice, Deed of Pak. and if it wins I will be springing for the $6 at webscriptions even though it can be had for free at the Bane CD archive site to support DRM free books and the Author.

It is an absolutely superb book. Even though I nominated LOTR, I voted for Paksinnarion. It has a "prequel", "The Legacy of Gird", which personally I didn't enjoy nearly as much.

Yes. The 1913 edition of EB is at PG. Not yet complete - it's up to the letter "E" in volume 9.
Ok... then it's off the table. If the full book (all the volumes) aren't available right. Phew...

Yeah, I didn't like the prequel stuff as much either. Haven't read the first of the new sequel books that are out yet.

Well, yeah,okay, I can see that. Still, I'd think anyone who'd looked up the series must have noticed there were more than three books (and a series with three books is not necessarily a trilogy - says the pedant in me). I think it's sloppy

Unfortunately Moon hasn't published anything with Baen for quite some time (IIRC they had some kind of disagreement and she left for a new publisher).

The first new "Paks World" book is Oath of Fealty and came out from Del Rey as a Hardcover in March...
http://www.amazon.com/Oath-of-Fealty...=AG56TWVU5XWC2


She's one of those authors who I'll pretty much automatically buy anything she puts out.
