Theorizing about upcoming work from announced authors - fine
Showing your approval or disapproval of announced releases - fine, though I advise to avoid excesses
Talking (yet again!) about already released stuff, especially Guymer and his treatment of the Iron Hands & the Lion as well as Thorpe and the Dark Angels is not part of an upcoming stuff discussion. We had plenty of that in more threads than I can remember. Especially Guymer and his take on Ferrus Manus and the Lion. It is not the first time and the first thread I am pointing at this.
Either go back and continue the discussion in the respective threads or (in recently announced case) start a new one.
That is my advice as a member of the community, who likes to avoid skipping through pages (generally speaking) of off-topic discussions.
Can I just check - it was not ok/off topic for me to ask about Guymer writing a SoT novella (ie thought there was an upcoming book I missed but @DC now explained)?
