Legend of Huma was the first fantasy book I read and a huge part of why I got into fantasy to that end I'll always apprecate Mr. Knaak

Indeed. His warcraft work is scattershot, but Legend of Huma is damn near flawless.

I think his earlier dragonlance work was more inspired, as he was actually part of the worldcrafting process. Huma & Khaz actually fleshed out aspects of Krynn mentioned in passing or spoken about in other sources as mere afterthought.I think the big difference is with WoW he doesn't have much of an emotional/intelectual tie to the Warcraft Lore as he did to the Dragonlance Lore, and has less invested in it on a personal level. If he were writing about Krynn and he tweaked the lore to write a book, most people would be like "well allright", but as soon as he steps on people's toes by taking liberties with WoW lore and you get the KNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAK!!that everyone likes to scream. I honestly don't think he thought it would be a very big deal, but then I don't think he understood alot of things. like the demographic of his target audience, for one. feh.
