Dragons of Summer Flame[edit]

Shouldn't "Dragons of Summer Flame" be listed as seperate after the Legends trilogy?
The title is confusing (an other season..), but it's the finishing volume of the original series.

So I advise:

  • Chronicles trio
  • Legends trio
  • Dragons of Summer flame
  • ...
Uh no it isn't it comes 20 years after the original trilogy and is the sequel to the second generation. Jamhaw 16:33, 22 September 2006 (UTC)jamhaw

Him being mistaken for a girl[edit]

It's happened a lot look at this "Tracy Hickman did a wonderful job with it, and I plan to read more of her books for sure!" a reveweron Amazon said that we should mention it I think. Jamhaw 16:42, 8 June 2006 (UTC)jamhaw

Not really, that may happen because Tracy is associated with a female name. Unless in english (I don't speak that natively) the gender is also confused when hearing about someone named "Tracy", it should not be included. -- ReyBrujo 17:09, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

I also mistook him for a woman, up until yesterday (thanks to wiki). And that's 12 years after i read my first book by Tracy / Hickman (and a LOT after that i might add). It is as ReyBrujo says, the name Tracy that put me off.

if you take a look at the alt.fan.dragonlance faq (http://www.cs.uu.nl/wais/html/na-dir/books/dragonlance-faq.html) it's actually listed as a common question of the newsgroup. though the FAQ is fairly tongue in cheek (Was Lord Soth a potted plant?) it's quite probable that Tracy's gender is a common mistake. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 208.38.59.90 (talkcontribs) .

My Mom was buying me one of the books as a present and when looking at the back saw that he was a guy it suprised her.plus he even mentioned it the annoted legends or something Jamhaw 16:32, 22 September 2006 (UTC)jamhaw

While at DragonCon 2006 I mentioned to Tracy I thought he was a woman. He told me that he has been invited twice to speak at a NOW (National Organization for Women) convention and said if they asked a third time he just might take them up! Obviously there is no reference for this based on my quick chat while getting a book signed, but if someone wanted to I'm sure they could track down something. The inclusion of a section just like this is what makes WikiPedia great, tidbits you don't find elsewhere.71.236.52.186 21:22, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
For now, it will stay here as a "trivia", because we need to verify our information. Hopefully a reference will appear someday. -- ReyBrujo 23:46, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

Daystar West[edit]

I would like to see some info on his company Daystar West that published 2 D&D modules before they were latter republished by TSR. The article currently implies that TSR offered him a job instead of buying his modules, where as possibly they did this as well. Anyone with any sourced information on this it would be good to add it to the article. - Waza 12:03, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Tracy ran a gaming store, "The Dragon's Den," in Logan, Utah before taking the job at TSR. Daystar West was also active during this time. I don't have sources, but Tracy was my dungeon master at the time. I would like to see this cited. - —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.219.22.11 (talk) 05:57, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Previous jobs[edit]

Was he really "a drill press operator in a genealogy center"? Notwithstanding that's what his website says, should it read "a drill press operator and in a genealogy center"? Camboxer (talk) 15:18, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Actually, no the citation is correct: I was a drill press operator in a genealogy center. In those days, genealogy was conducted using long sheets of legal sized paper with two sets of holes drilled in one end of the paper -- the larger of the two sets were then notched. The holes were drilled in entire reams of paper using a drill press, then the press was fitted with a notching attachment and the notches were made using blades on the attachment. The citation is correct as it stands. Tracy Hickman

Cool, interesting trivia. :) 24.148.0.83 (talk) 05:01, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
