Speculative Fiction Reviews, Interviews, Art and Whatever Else!
During my recent re-reading (or audiobooking) of the Malazan Book of The Fallen series, I've been rediscovering some of my all time favourite fantasy characters. And, my favourite Malazan, is Fiddler (aka Strings)! I found this image, which almost exactly portrays the conjuring of Fiddler I have in my head, and felt the need to share..
How to shoot a cusser according to Fiddler:
Fiddler: "Well, the idea is to aim and shoot, then bite a mouthful of dirt."
Cuttle: "I can see the wisdom in that, Fid. Now, you let us all know when you’re firing, right?"
Fiddler: "Nice and loud, aye."
Cuttle: "And what word should we listen for?"
Fiddler: "Duck. Or sometimes what Hedge used to use."
Cuttle: "Which was?"
Fiddler: "A scream of terror."
