Here at Ice Moon Prison we have strong opinions about what constitutes a fantasy novel. One aspect that is non-negotiable is that it has to have a map. So we were disappointed while rereading Stephen Donaldson’s Mordant’s Need that it does not ship with a map. This omission is peculiar, because clearly the author had a map while he was writing the story: there are many often quite detailed descriptions of the land’s geography. So we set ourselves the task of annotating every geographic statement in the novel.
