    Question Book 17

    I know that a few months after taggerung (or something like that) we knew about Triss and Loamhedge. What do you think will be the seventeenth novel (let rumors abound)
    Get out of my mind, idea! I already have another idea in my head that I am working on!
    Don't you just hate it when you have an idea, don't write it down, and you lose it?
    Why does advertising use Mac OS "Classic" on most displays and or computers that are sometimes Windows?
    I need to get my web site back up.

    Actually, we knew about Triss and Loamhedge months prior to the release Taggerung. Brian revealed them during a webcast promoting the (then) new book, Castaways of the Flying Dutchman.

    As for book #17-- no comment.

    Well, if he had written "Loamhedge" prior to the release of "(The) Taggerung" then he is quite possibly planning or even writing #18 right now, though he may be a year behind due to his stroke. With this in mind we should soon get some official information regarding #17, especially if the thread at Terrouge is correct that he is talking about it while on tour.

    Well, if you hear anything, will you tell me. He is not touring to any cities near mine, and I don't want to travel far to see him.

    Book Seventeen, according to things I've read in the terrouge post, will be exiting in my opinion; A squirrel warrior selling his sword (?mercenary?) ... Who knows about more details other than Brian Jacques himself?

    (after reading {skimming?} all of the terrouge forum about the 17th book)

    thr....three blades! the main character is going to carry three blades! How insane is that!?

    Racatetan?...and I thought the name Taggerung was weird...
    It sounds like a fairly interesting book, a warrior mercenary squirrel from the Northlands and whatnot...

    Question

    The one thing I'm not sure of is what is meant by "sells his sword", though taking it literally would seem very odd indeed. If he is a mercenary it should be good, though I wonder whether he'll be bad, which I think is unlikely, live in a bad situation, like Deyna in "(The) Taggerung", or simply be a mercenary but only fighting for good, though the fact that he would appear to demand payment suggests he is not some Martin or Janglur, just helping goodbeasts purely out of the good of his heart. When considering this we should remember that the only mercenary t here has been, that I can remember, is Bane and his band, most definately on the side of evil. Either way it is interesting to see Brian playing around with his own boundaries.

    The freebooters in Triss were also mercinaries, as well as Patchcoat. I know there must me more mercinaries somewhere, most of them being bad guys.

    Just to clear things up, he hadn't finished Loamhedge at that time. If anything, it was little more than a bare outline or a few chapters at the time. Brian traditionally works two books ahead, so I'd say he's finishing up with #18 and is starting the groundwork for #19-- assuming, of course, A Divvil of a Lad, Liver Jack, and Sergeant Mugworth haven't eaten up too much time and that he hasn't begun a third Castaways novel.

    And he said he was taking it easy after the stroke. Mind you he may be writing just one Redwall and one other each year, though it seems like more as we hear about the books years before they come out.

    Having a few books written in advance doesn't mean he's overworking. I'd say the man can handle his time better than me. *realizes she has homework*
    I say, is that a jellyfish?

    Okay, now I'll comment on it. It's not "Racatetan", but Rackety Tam. "Selling his sword" does, indeed, equal "mercenary", and Rackety is accompanied by his friend, Wild Dougie Plum.

    For more information, see the latest Newsline post: http://forums.longpatrolclub.com/sho...=&threadid=665

    There are still a few bits I'm not revealing, but I'll see what I can do.

    *Cheers* I'm glad it's a mercenary. Mind you it could just be two warriors going about and the only price they demand for their services is a bit of shelter, food and water. Wild Dougie Plum is an interesting name. For all those who are not British it is a very northern British name, sounding quite Scotish, not to say that there are no southern Dougies, of course. This gives no real clue as to the storyline, though you can most likely bet your granny they get to Redwall somehow.
