I always felt Niles needed more time in the Realms, as I enjoyed most of his books. And his DRAGONLANCE titles too.

It would be interesting to see a book by Niles written for the Heartlands. A small scale Harper novel or something in that direction. Although I must admit that some of his later (by that I mean nearly ten years ago of course) Dragonlance books did little for me personally.

A small scale story on anything realms related would be nice.

Maybe a monthly Web Novella? ( i know......it'll never happen, but it cannot hurt to wish;))

Is there a criteria for whether a scroll is created for a particular novel or not? I noticed that there aren't scrolls for every novel/trilogy. Do we just ask for them to be created? Just wondering!

The only real criteria, usually, is that the novel has just been released. That's when I'll open the discussion scrolls. This has been the practice since about 2005, so Book Club scrolls for older [pre-2005] novels, simply don't exist.

The Book Club functions on the premise that most Realms fans will be reading the recently released novel, around the same time, so discussion will be readily apparent.

No book club for Gauntlgrym?? I suspect it is due to Candlekeep having more anti-Salvatore/Drizzt than fans...I just finished part 1 and it's not a "remake" of Streams of Silver as some people think. I enjoy it.

No, it's more a thing of simply not having created one yet. There are a lot more RAS fans on this forum than there are non-RAS fans, thinks I.

Errr... no. The lack of Book Club scrolls for RAS's latest is simply due to the fact that I've neither had the time to open the scrolls, nor the gold pieces necessary to purchase the book.

However, if you could provide me with the number of chapters and whether there is prologue and/or epilogue, I'll see toward open the requisite scrolls over the weekend.

Mods, will we ever see the old (1E to 3E) novels in these halls?

There's nothing stopping someone who wants to discuss the older novels... But the current Book Club format is designed for the newest novels, because those are the ones most readily available to everyone, and most likely to be read at the time the scroll is started.

Older novels suffer from a lack of availability, and with more people reading the newest novels at any given time, even those of us that love the older novels may not have read any given one recently.

A good example is Cormyr -- I'm currently re-reading that one, for the first time in at least a couple of years, possibly as many as 4 or 5. I'd imagine that of all our currently active scribes, less than half own that novel, and of them, there's prolly fewer than a handful reading it right now.

I reread a lot of books today, FR and non-FR, and read two new ones. 'Tis what usually happens when my insomnia strikes!

'Tis true. And Alibris, and Abebooks, and Half.com, and Nobleknight... But some people have limited funds, or they don't want to do online transactions, or they live in places where shipping is prohibitively costly.

Wooly is entirely on the mark, for this.

Though, I've been considering either re-opening or opening [as the case my be], past Book Club scrolls as part of expanding the notion of scribes all reading the same point at the same time -- so we can all discuss it at the same time. You know, like how a Book Club usually works.
