Would I be wrong in assuming that the majority of players that know who Knaak is think he's a no-talent? I'm kind of surprised he'll be at BlizzCon, and I wonder what kind of reaction he'll receive.I'm trying really hard to sludge my way through 'Day of the Dragon' but it's just really boring so far. I didn't realize he was responsible for the 'Huma' trilogy of Dragonlance books, which also happen to be some of the only books in that series that I didn't like. It's just my opinion, I'm sure some people think he's great, but I wasn't surprised to find out just how many people feel the same way I do about his 'talent.'

Actually, you are quite right, he has no talent and I can't believe they allowed him to even write for Blizzard. With all that money they make from the 10 million players you would think they would be willing to shell out a bit more for a writer with some skill at writing. Knaak's only skill is to kill characterization, plot and excitement.Even his original work is horrible. I read the Janus Mask - oh boy, was that a waste of time. The characters spent more time going back and forth because they couldn't make up their minds where they wanted to be. No proper characterization, no real motivation, everything is a paper cutout stretched tightly over stereotypes... Ugh.This is why, even though I'd like to read some of the WoW stories, I don't bother. Talentless hack writers are not worth the time to read as they butcher any and everything they touch.

I don't know if Knaak's work is disliked by a majority of people, but the people who don't like him are certainly vocal.

I think Christie Golden will be at BlizzCon as well for the book signing event that Knaak's also attending. I like her writing much better than Knaak's.
