Topic: Question about Eternity / The Way of All Ghosts

I just got Far Horizons finally and read The Way of All Ghosts after reading Eternity a few months ago. I was wondering , is this story supposed to be separate from the rest of the Eon universe ? Was that the same Final Mind the avatars came from in eternity ?


It was very good and thank you :)

GHOSTS and LEGACY precede EON and ETERNITY. Take a look at LEGACY for more details. Thanks for the kind words, Matt!

Hello again, greg.
I've never read The way of all ghosts. I'd like to. I've heard tell of such beast, but never had the good fortune to happen across it on my travels. Various places have spoken of it as being a 4th venture into the universe of The Way. Or maybe it's more of a pit-stop into The Way (being a short story) compared to the mind expending giants that are the other three books? Anyway, my question is, why have I never heard anyone make mention of another other short story called Wind From A Burning Woman when referencing this whole series? I mean I know it's not directly interwoven into the other stories, but it surely has more things in common than not. ie: it has an asteroid, naderites, geshels, hexamon nexus. Surely it deserves at least a footnote in The Way credits?

Clarification:

In *our* world, the sequence was Eon, Eternity, Legacy, The Way of all Ghosts.

In that universe (I'm not going to remind that we could very well be in the Way...oh, um, I guess I just did....), the sequence was Ghosts, Legacy, Eon, Eternity.

But what is time anyway? (City, City, City.....)

Creation often takes place in reverse time, no?

I've read Eon and Eternity(engrossed). And just finished
Forge of God and Anvil of Stars(love). Whats wrong with
Hollywood or do you shun them which I highly understand.
Thank you and Issac for helping me expand my mind beyond
this realm of existence and helping me forget about the bills
for a couple of hours. Sorry to get off the subject.

Thanks, Antonio! No shunning of Hollywood at all--in fact, take a look at the CGSociety's EON Challenge for some amazing young filmmakers and their visions... (Bing or Google that exact phrase, CGSociety EON Challenge, and let me know what you think.) And FORGE/ANVIL have just had their options renewed...
