I want to know more about Anklejelly Manor. I want to know why there are such odd statues in the garden, who those people were, and what their stories are.
I want to visit the Jungles of Plontst, although I suspect that I would not be able to bear breathing through my nose at all during that trip. I feel a need to learn more Troll poetry and to find out what happens when someone (no spoilers) returns there.
I also want to know about the woes of Shreve, although I suspect that would end up being just as dark a book as the Silmarillion. But dark can be beautiful and meaningful, as long as there is still some light showing through.
What stories do you want to know more about? Has something made you curious or started you wishing you had the whole story?

I am dying to read Squirrel Gets Away by Quarvue Cloodge. Just the title sweeps me up into this wonderful sehnsuchty autumnal feeling, an inconsolable ache.

I want to know about some of those places off the edges of the map, and whether they have maps of their own, and where their map edges get to, and what their stories are, what their cultures are like, and what they know (or don’t know) of the Maker.

Wow, so much comes to mind! I definitely agree with Miss Linda about the Woes of Shreve and Anklejelly Manor. I’m also very interested in how Miller’s Bridge came to be, or who Miller even was for that matter.
I’d also be interested to hear about the Torr Dynasty and their adventures. Or why they like kittens as much as they do?
And of course, Anyara. The Fane of Fire. Yurgen and the Sunken Mountains. Naturally the beginning is interesting to me.
I might come up with more later, but right now this is all I’ve got. 😀

Oh, yes, I want to know all about Miller’s bridge too! Who built that? HOW….that thing is huge? Why, why not just go farther up the river and build at a better spot? Was it called “Miller’s” bridge because it ran a mill, or maybe a whole series or mills? Who engineered that and did it have hydroelectric power or just mechanical? I want to know.

I’m curious about Skreean stories from the Clobidian Age.

I think I would love a short story on the kidnapping of Sarah Cobbler – you know, when she was taken to the fork factory and stuff. ?
I’d also like to read “The Age of Kindly Flabbits”
The Anneiran family history book at the Ban Rona library? Something Janner wrote? Peet’s journal?
There are so many possibilities. ?

I hope some of these stories end up in Wingfeather Tales. 🙂

I would love to read more about Oskar’s back story. He is a character often used for humour and light relief in the books, but I can also see a depth to Oskar. When most people in glipwood have given up hope and become content to live under Fang rule, he hasn’t – he stores the weapons in Anklejelly manor, he helps the wingfeathers escape – both very dangerous things to do. And he holds on to the written word, which in some ways I think is holding on to hope – hope that Anniera is real, hope that the Maker is still in control – if he had given up, I don’t think that he would value old books so much. I would love to hear more of Oskar’s story – what caused him to have this hope – in Anniera, in the Maker – to the point that he was was willing to fight for it when a lot of the people around him had given up.

Steph, thanks for this. You’re so right.

completely agree with Miss Linda, although I would think that a book about the Woes of Shreve would be more like as to Dune than the Silmarillion. (“He who controls the spice, controls the Universe!”) But personally I would really, really like the telling of the Eremiad that was referenced in North! or be Eaten. I already have an entire idea of what the entire story is and honestly am writing it down but I would still seriously like to hear Andrew’s version of that particular story.

Yes! I just read that footnote as I was reading through the series for the third time a while ago. Please write it, Mr. Peterson!
