We should take up a collection for leg manacles for Rothfuss; we can let him away from his desk on alternate Sundays, but only if he's good.

Pat Rothfuss is not your bitch! Also, his blog is hilarious

Very NSFW:

I laughed all the way through that.

What's really awesome is that I posted it a page ago.

And obviously some people missed it (runs away from the Tannhauser'd tag yet again)

I thought someone had, but I just didnt watch it then. Maybe I just don't find you convincing enough, unlike that smooth Tanglebones character.

Yea, I'm pretty unconvincing as a whole, and am frequently ignored as a result. You get used to it though.

I just can't read the part. It just sucks that bad. Why so many chapters?

A lot of the chapters are shorter interludes where you get sucked back into the current time. Aside from that, I feel as though most of the chapter breaks are just natural pauses in his story telling, like when you stop to think about what's coming next.

Before he starts reading hilarious romance, they talk about fantasy. Really quiet and will have to be turned way up.

Some good insights in this interview. Specifically on Denna.

Finished up book 2 last night. I wish I'd known this was an unfinished series when I started.

Funny. I finally finished it yesterday too. Had some time to read over the long weekend.

I didn't know the third book wasn't finished. I thought it was and he was just proofing it.

Yeah, isn't it frustrating? I want to know what happens now, not in 2013.

It is a mix of the two. He finished the series years ago but has become a much better writer since and has been going back and essentially rewriting them.

I'm 51% of the way through Wise Man's Fear. Denna is starting to piss me off. I suppose that's the point, though.

I'd still do her.

She'd just run.

Hey, no resurrecting the thread til book 3 is out!

Any idea when that will be?

probably 2013, since it was two years between the first and second books...

Have sadly heard no rumbles. I suggest folks fill the void by reading Martin, Brust, Rowling, Collins...

We never did figure out why he named it Wise Man's Fear, did we? There were plenty of events that could relate to the "saying," but not one that dominated the entire book. Should have just been called "Sex, Politics and Martial Arts."

QFMFT! I saw the necro and immediately checked Amazon to see if the third book was out.

You got it!

I'm not sure if fangblackbone is still active, but if he is: it'd be great if you'd remove 'UPDATE' from the thread title, because the update was ages ago. When it necros back up, excitement and then disappointment ensue.

Thank you, sir.

It has been a while since I read it, but from what I remember somewhere in the book someone actually says the phrase.

A wise man fears a storm on the sea, a moonless night, and a gentleman's anger.

I don't recall whether there was a moonless night or what happened on it, but the other two, yes.
