Wise Man’s Fear Delay

After reading and enjoying Patrick Rothfuss’s debut The Name of the Wind, many were happy to know that the rest of the series had been completed and each book would come out approximately a year apart. However, it was recently announced that the publication date was being pushed back from March 2008 to April 2009, which upset a lot of people. In this blog post, Rothfuss explains the reason for the delay with the second book in the Kingkiller Chronicle. […]

Terry Pratchett Diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s

Coming Up

Unforunately, I haven’t had that much time lately and am a little behind. I’ve still been reading when I can, though – right after The Name of the Wind, I read The Telling by Ursula K. Le Guin and now I am reading The Enchantments of Flesh and Spirit, the first book in the Wraeththu trilogy by Storm Constantine. I’ll have to get a review of The Telling up here soon. Wraeththu was highly recommended by a friend and thus […]
