Looks like David Eddings is dead.

I didn't really read too much of his after the Malloreon series -- I got through the first couple of Sparhawk books before giving up, but I remember loving the Belgariad and reading my copies of those books near to death.

Joel Furr is never going to live that down.

I don't recall ever reading the Malloreon series; however, I think I read some high fantasy with Orcs books that he co-authored with someone else.

Joel Furr should never live that down. It was one of the dickiest on-topic things I ever read on rasfw.

I didn't say it was a bad thing, mind you. Just that it wasn't going to happen.

The Malloreon was (as best I remember it) pretty much the Belgariad with the serial numbers mostly filed off.

As were the Sparhawk books.

It was that point that I pretty much quit reading Eddings -- between that and his "each nation's people are all stereotypes" (these are the traders and spies. And here's the Norse pastiche. And the Romans. And....) I just lost interest.

Still, the Belgariad was one of the first fantasy series that I started with, and read repeatedly (that, and the original Dragonlance trilogy). I've no idea if I'd enjoy the series if I did a reread now -- I think that I'll leave that series up in the attic and just enjoy the fond memories.....
