most impressive thing about this novella Korbal Broach on this story is the best so far although he appeared on fewer pages than on The Lees of Laughter s End where he was also amazing On this story he is pictured as a childish person I got one little surprise from one of is action at near the end of the story For otheres who hasn t read this series I suggest to read the previous stories At least the first one Blood Follows to understandof some dialog between Bauchelain and Reese and the grasp the unspoken warm hearted master servant relationship Mr Erikson shows his great writing style by bring out the drama implicitly and The Lees of Laughter s End , there are some reappearance characters from The Lees When tyrants collide they have dinnerThis is just getting better and better I m actually tempted to finish all short stories, regardless the chronological reading order Tehol and Bugg Kruppe and Iskaral Pust Telorast and Curdle These are names that will be instantly familiar to readers of Malazan Book of the Fallenand which bring an immediate smile to the face It s almost unfair that an author with such a flair for complex, densely woven epic fantasy can also pull off witty banter and darkly madcap humor, but Steven Erikson used those duos exceptionally well to lighten the overall tension and contrast the often crushing sense despair.In a sense, his Tehol and Bugg Kruppe and Iskaral Pust Telorast and Curdle These are names that will be instantly familiar to readers of Malazan Book of the Fallenand which bring an immediate smile to the face It s almost unfair that an author with such a flair for complex, densely woven epic fantasy can also pull off witty banter and darkly madcap humor, but Steven Erikson used those duos exceptionally well to lighten the overall tension and contrast the often crushing sense despair.In a sense, his Tales of Bauchelain and Korbal Broach are almost like excised chapters, removed from the overall saga, and allowed to stand on their own More importantly, as much as they are still connected to the overall saga, they can be read as standalone tales, providing new readers with a taste of Erikson s literary magic They re probably not the best place to start, lest they create an unfair expectation of the series, but you cannot deny their appeal.The Wurms of Blearmouth is actually the fifth novella to feature Bauchelain and Korbal Broach, the first three of which were conveniently collected in a single volume a few years ago Originally released as a limited edition back in 2012, Wurms is just making its mass market debut now.I d be doing you a huge disservice to try and deconstruct the plot you really have to experience it to appreciate it , so I ll just settle for highlighting a few favorite elements Lord Fangatooth Claw the Render is the perfect parody of the over the top, scene chewing villain he s a pompous, arrogant sorcerer, given to making grandiose speeches, but completely inept at saying anything of substance He insist that Coingood, his poor scribe, document his every wordbut revise, reinvent, and rewrite it to sound betterFind the clever things he said, Scribe, and change them around Felittle and her mother, Feloovil, are another awkward pairing the virgin seductress who only wants the chance to be a whore, and the brothel owner who clings to illusion of her daughter s innocence I tell you, I nearly lost it when long suffering Emancipor Reese cursed manservant to Bauchelain and Broach gets flashed by Feloovil s miraculously enhanced breasts, and nearly driven mad by the sight of those hungry, slavering nipple mouths So much horrible fun Her breasts had no nipples Instead, in place of them, were mouths, with soft, feminine lips painted bright red As he stared, both tits blew him a kiss.Spilgit Purrble, the self nominated tax collector Ackle, the once dead gravedigger and Hordilo Stinq, the pirate turned lawman these three men have some of the best dialogue in the entire story, with bewildering conversations about everything from muddy buckets to shovels attaining a level of wit and cleverness that Erikson somehow pulls off effortlessly They re largely responsible for driving the story forward, with everybody else really just along for the ride, and our heroes really just having a jolly time baiting their pompous foe in anticipation of an end game that s as bloody as it is bloody fun Spilgit shrugged I doubt anyone d ever claim renting shovels was a profit making enterprise It s a crazy, madcap tale, and one that will have you laughing out loud on a regular basis It s a story that bears close reading, however, as much of the magic is contained in the words both dialogue and narrative At just over 200 pages, The Wurms of Blearmouth is a perfect sort of literary desert for fans of the Malazan Book of the Fallen Originally reviewed at Beauty in Ruins A clever and well written, but forgettable, novella.The Bauchelain and Korbal stories showcase a different part of the Malazan universe than the main series It s true that both are dark and rich with magic, but whereas the main books tell dense stories with lots of subtext and, sure, some humor thrown in these novellas abandon density altogether in favor of some clever quips.But it s not as if the novellas are also light hearted They often feature lots of violence and gore Often, it i A clever and well written, but forgettable, novella.The Bauchelain and Korbal stories showcase a different part of the Malazan universe than the main series It s true that both are dark and rich

if the novellas are also light hearted They often feature lots of violence and gore Often, it isn t that the narrators or characters jokes are funny it s that the jokes are paired with, or playing off, the darkness of what s happening around them.And while Erikson does a good job making what might otherwise be a tension between funny moments and really dark contexts into a situation where both are enhancing each other, the stories very frequently feel empty or cheap.It s hard to feel like the reader witnessed anything of meaning or consequence here Both the plot and characters serve some jokes and maybe one or two Deep Thoughts about, say, the nature of tyranny.So, there s not really much here to comment on The book really is an enjoyable read, especially if you liked the characters from the earlier novellas or their short appearance in the main series, but it s hardly a satisfying or meaningful one It s hard not to be disappointed by this the Malazan books are appreciated contributions to the fantasy genre precisely because they try to be insightful While these are horror stories, I find them amusing mostly for the interaction between Mancy the Luckless, Bauchelain and Korbal Not to mention the pearls of wisdom dropped throughout the story.
