Seriously, Raistlin as everybody's favorite bad guy in all of fantasy literature? I know a lot of fantasy readers who've never even heard of him. I always thought of the TSR novels as a lower class of fantasy. (Don't reply on the list; flame me at ghoyle1_at_PJAcWXjb7iutbYKcQALt5XR4xXBRtTWfluOM9v6siyrz7KirMlX3Q6cqTDHeOmE_YHu50DJC8EIGbkqT_5I2.yahoo.invalid, but don't necessarily expect a reply.)
Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,
A medley of extemporanea;
And love is a thing that can never go wrong; And I am Marie of Romania.
