In writing “A Throne of Bones,” I had two objectives of modest ambition. The first was to write a better epic fantasy than George R. R. Martin, or at least a better one than “A Dance with Dragons” turned out to be. The second is to demonstrate that by relying upon historical verisimilitude, conventional literary archetypes and traditional patterns of human behavior instead of modern secular ideologies and the current assumptions of the cultural zeitgeist, an author can expect to produce a work of literary quality that is observably superior to the vast quantity of sewage being published today.
I've read Summa Elvetica which is thoroughly entertaining but ends too soon. I'm glad to see that more books, set in the same world, will follow. I do wonder, is Vox writing a trilogy or does he have a greater series in mind?
