Taltos

Taltos cover

 

Another novel about Vlad Taltos, the assassin-hero of Jhereg and some others. This one was fun and scary to write, because I was working with three different time lines, and I wanted them to all make oblique comments on each other, and to all come together at the end, and I had no idea if they were going to. I was very relieved when it worked out. I’m pretty happy with it.

  1. Nobody’s commented on this one? Terrible.

    Taltos is the first of your books I owned, because all the others were available in the local library system, but this was not. Young Vlad has an anger and accompanying chutzpah that his older self seems to have gotten better at restraining or reining in, but which I very much related to at the time (well, the anger. The chutzpah i mostly just wished for…).
