So, after hearing about Knaak supposedly being this god awful writer, i sat down and read a couple of his books. To be honest, i was surprised to see so much rage come from them. they really aren't that bad unless you're just getting knit-picky over the WOW lore. BUT if that's your problem then i say take it up with Blizz, cause they change the lore ALL THE TIME.As for the quality of writing? it's not LOTR , but they're fun reads and enjoyable. He's not my favorite author or anything either. I guess i'm just saying that if you haven't read the books and still are raging, give 'em a try. Maybe you'll find they aren't half as bad. And if you read them and are still raging, oh well? Be happy that Blizz is branching out their authors i guess.

I've always found people complaining about him playing hard and fast with lore is kind of stupid. He doesn't write these things and then give them to blizzard to work into their world. He gets directives from Blizzard, bounces ideas off Metzen, and then writes a book. If you don't like what he does with lore, it's not his fault, at least not entirely. He's also responsible for a good deal of the lore in the game. The different dragonflights and the aspects that have been such a big part of the WoW storyline was an idea at least partly came from him, and was entirely fleshed out by him. Before Day of the Dragon, Alexstrasza was simply the Queen of the Dragons, and Deathwing was just some douchey dragon.
