When authors procrastinate

Sometimes great entertainment is born.

What would add to his coolness exponentially would be if he finished the other two books in the trilogy, and they were as good as the first.  Until they're finished and published, I can still have my dream, so I'm fine either way.  :)

Have you read any author procrastinatory posts that made your day?


  1. That as beautiful. *sheds a tear*

  2. I have a bit of a beef with Mr. Rothfuss. Oddly, it stems from a lack of sequelage but would, in fact, be made worse by the adding of sequelage. You see, I have read the Name of the Wind. Having no sequel to this beautiful piece of art, I started reading a different book. This next book has no grip on me. It's just somewhat blah-esque. Unfortunately, I have no solid way of knowing whether I would have liked this second book or not. It's like having my mom's Heart Attack Soup and then having Kraft Mac & Cheese. Now, I really like Mac & Cheese (I probably wouldn't be here today if it weren't for that cheesey powder goodness), but nothing holds a candle to Heart Attack Soup. All the cheesey powder goodness in the world wouldn't mean much after a couple of artery-clogging soup.
    So, thanks, Mr. Rothfuss. I don't know if I will ever enjoy fantasy novels like I could have...perhaps someday I will...

  3. Also, the 'w' on my keyboard is unreliable.

  4. Liz: :)

    Luke: Yeah. I think I only read nonfiction and contemporary YA fiction for a while after I read Name of the Wind. I didn't want to spoil any other fantasy books that might have been quite respectable in their own rights. I forget fast, though, so I was only off 'em for a month or so. The next ones I read were Liam Hearn's Tales of the Otori, I think, so that worked out well since those books also sing but are completely different.
