Stephen R. Donaldson
March 2017 News
The following is a copy of the newsletter I received from Stephen R. Donaldson.
When I first launched my newsletter project, I intended to put out three a year, or possibly four. But that hasn't happened. Readers of my previous "blast" know what occurred last year: my publisher, Berkley, instructed me not to announce their decision to publish my new trilogy, The Great God's War, until they had issued their own press release--a process that took several months. (During that time, Gollancz also came on board; but they haven't imposed any "gag orders.") And now the same thing has happened again. I approved Berkley's cover art and design for Book One, SEVENTH DECIMATE, almost three months ago; but …
Hey what's up it's me, I can take credit for the in depth, editing of the Thomas Covenant, Linden Avery, Roger Covenant and Joan articles. I hope you like them. I can't wait for the last book, I have already read a piece of the third chapter and it's excellent. I don't want to give anything away the link is on SRD website. I've also added the cover of the last dark to the website hope you like that too. It's a little big so someone get a smaller pic. Just so you are aware i'm eighteen years old and love the chronicles I've read them all so far.
Just a friendly reminder, the Final Dark comes out sometime in October of 2013, this year. I suppose it would be courteous to hold off a few weeks before posting any spoilers.
Unless there is a mircale and someone starts to take charge of this wiki then nothing much will be happening for the next week or so.
I have an exam at Uni on friday the 11th of May and until then I will be refraining from editing or adding pages to the wiki to concentrate on revision.
See you on the 12th. :)
I would like to know peoples thoughts on a how to create a new version of the homepage.
I have just uploadeed a new background images courtesy of the art of from http://darthiggy.deviantart.com/ which i have been given permission to use.
I you have any ideas on what to include on the homepage please let me know as currently I am struggling to come up with ideas as the wiki is very lacking in most areas at this moment in time.
I am currently re-working my way through the first book and hopefully soon we can come up with some ideas for the HomePage
Thankyou. --Tomrowley 00:03, December 13, 2011 (UTC)
There are a number of different Character Templates such as one specifically just for Giants or Haruchai.
They all give different information and leave other information out and so I recomened we use the Template:Character or Template:Character2 for all Characters as I will change it slightly so it can be incorporated into all Character pages.

I just stumbled upon your wiki project today and after a brief look, I feel like I can help expand the articles you've got so far.
I've been a fan of Stephen Donaldson's writing since 1991 when I was given a copy of Daughter of Regals and Lord Foul's Bane, which were assuredly advanced reading for someone my age at the time. I rose to the level of his literary style and began consuming his books enmass (Thanks to the Chamblain Used Bookstore in Jacksonville, Fl.). At first, I'll admit that Thomas Covenant took some getting used to, having been inundated with unrealistically heroic main character-driven stories in popular media. Today, I'm just working on finishing up the last quarter of Against All Things Ending.
I'll not drag this out into ramb…
There has been alot of spam on the Wanted Pages however I think I have managed to delete it all.
If you notice any please delete it, or inform me and I shall do it.
Just an uodate to say that all the spam pages have now gone and all the Wanted Pages once again relate to the Books and are not spamming our wiki by trying to sell us things or spread hate messages.

Hi Guys I have just recieved rights to the wiki and I am hoping to make it THE source of information for the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant and I can't do it without your help.
Anything you can think to add, however big or small the addition would be very grateful.
