Re: Typhon Pact: Plagues of Night by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)

For those interested, my local Barnes and Noble had this on the shelves today. Picked it up. I'm still in the Worlds of DS9 so I have a bit to go before getting to it.

Suggestion: If you're the type who flips to the back of the book to try and glean a hint of what's going on, do yourself a favor and DON'T. ;-)

Talking of Sisko's behaviour, I just re-read Fearfull Symetry and The Soulkey, and both novels already start Sisko on his new path. He is appereantly given a vision by the Prophets of things to come, atleast that how it is comes across to me. And judging from what we know, it was probably a vision of the Trouble with the Ascendents.

[. . .]

So, if anyone wants to blame anyone for Sisko's path, please realize that it was all part of a bigger plan for the DS9 story arc already laid out, one that ultimatly never came to fruition.
I hadn't thought of tracing Sisko's behaviour back before RBOE, into the last books of the DS9 relaunch. This puts it into better perspective for me.

Agreed that the arc wasn't concluded in the context of the DS9 relaunch, but I wonder if it--or something like it--might be in the process of being completed in George's duology.

Yeah that spoiler tag sure looks tempting, doesn't it.
But I can wait till I get there on my own. Just a few more days.

I had a healthy dislike for Rough Beasts, mainly for what it did to Sisko so this will not be an automatic buy for me. I might have to really sit down and give it a read through before I buy it. Plus if I see a lot of good reviews, and especially if I read that Sisko's character has been redeemed, I'll pick it up. So far the Typhon Pact books haven't lived up to their potential but hope springs eternal.

My memory is a bit sketchy, but didn't DRGIII throw a childish hissy fit and rage quit the forums rather than listen to the legitimate criticism of Rough Beasts?

So Plagues of Night will be more of the same. Pass.

I love these kinds of rants. DRG threw a hissy fit, but of course every bit if the criticism levied against him was reasoned, even-handed, and, most hilariously, legitimate. Because that's, you know, not a subjective viewpoint at all.

You're right -- your memory is indeed sketchy.
