Speculations on the start of Burn's Sleep calendar yearEdit

The first day of the Burn's Sleep calendar year may be tied to be the first day of Spring instead of the Malazan equivalent of our January 1st. In Gardens of the Moon the changeover from the Year of the Tusk to the Year of the Moon's Tears was tied to the Gedderone Fête celebrating the first day of Spring.[124][125] It is unclear if the Burn's Sleep calendar followed the same convention. The majority of events covered in Gardens of the Moon leading to the Gedderone Fete were recorded as occurring in 1163 BS.[126] The events of Memories of Ice were recorded as occurring two months after the Fete in 1164 BS.[127] But the Prologue of Deadhouse Gates begins in 1163 BS with the events of the Gedderone Fête already known.[128] Assuming the date is not an error by Erikson, Tavore Paran's ascension to Adjunct was either near instantaneous with Lorn's death or the Burn's Sleep year actually began some time in the two month window between the Fête and the start of Memories of Ice.
