In Northern Genabackis, a raiding celebration of savage tribal warriors descends from the mountains into the southern flatlands. Their purpose is to wreak havoc among the despised lowlanders, yet for the only named Karsa Orlong it marks the start of what is going to end up to be a rare destiny.
            a few years later, it's the aftermath of the Chain of canine. Tavore, the Adjunct to the Empress, has arrived within the final final Malazan stronghold of 7 towns. New to command, she needs to hone twelve thousand infantrymen, more often than not uncooked recruits yet for a handful of veterans of Coltaine's mythical march, right into a strength able to tough the massed hordes of Sha'ik's Whirlwind who lie in wait within the middle of the Holy Desert.
But ready is rarely effortless. The seer's warlords are locked right into a energy fight that threatens the very soul of the uprising, whereas Sha'ik herself suffers, haunted through the information of her nemesis: her personal sister, Tavore.
            And so starts this impressive new bankruptcy in Steven Erikson's acclaimed Malazan booklet of the Fallen . . .

He looked again at the pictures. “First-ever observations of a live giant squid in the wild” the paper was called, as if ten-year-olds had taken control of the Proceedings of the Royal Society B. First ever. More than one of his colleagues had printouts of those pictures above their desks. When the images were released, Billy himself had turned up at the office with two bottles of Cava, and had proposed that the anniversary should henceforth be an annual holiday, Squid-day.

I’d be grateful if you’d show me around. ” Billy saw that the young female officer had gone. ” he said. ” Mulholland looked at him kindly, as if Billy were slow. ” Evidence. Billy ran his hand through his hair. He imagined marks on the floor where some huge perfidious pulley system might have been. Drying puddles of preserver in a trail as telltale as crumbs.
