Ja. I'm having a real problem with this and I've discussed it w a few of you and I seem to be alone. So allow me to self-flagellate here.
I feel kind of bad.
Tyzmon and Icon's mom is only indirectly mentioned, she loses her son and apparently has her memory messed w to compensate.
Other females are referred to in strongly negative terms: Bitches, witches, whores -- Icon's opinions of Tyzmon's sex life -- Icon also seems to think Tyzmon's mental problems are the result of being somehow cursed (we'll take volunteers if anyone wants to break the truth to him).
Mary (Tyzman's sister, Tyzmon's 'aunt') is described as always a bitch to T so he's surprised she helps him (with the Tyzlane Staff)
Lucy -- poor fkn Lucy! -- introduced, miscarries and DIES of an infection ALL IN THE SAME PARAGRAPH!
Finally, Captain Earl and his 'face-faced' (was originally 'fat-faced' but I had a typo, now it is 'round-faced') wench with a sharp tongue.
And that's ALL the females in the book so far! -r PS: I really hope I'm not as much of a sexist as the above makes me feel like I am -=-
