Memories Of Ice by Stephen Erikson (about 1/3 in), third book of Malazan series. I like it more than previous two so far.

Yes, yes there is:

Interestingly, King also changed the time it was set in for the re-release as well.

I do love that book in all its sprawling glory. Best read with a cold, as I did the first time.

I kind of wish he hadn't. The date references changed, but few, if any, of the cultural touchstones did. It led to the 90s feeling a lot like the 70s in several major ways.
