PATRICK ROTHFUSS IN TEXAS!
Patrick Rothfuss is one of the premier authors of our age. The Name of the Wind came out in March 2007 and began to fly off the shelves from the very first day. It wasn’t long before Rothfuss and The Name of The Wind were named New York Times Bestsellers. Fans rushed to bookstores with an enthusiasm rarely seen in the publishing industry. Then when they finished the first book, they wanted more. They asked, pleaded, and even begged to get the next book in the series, but years went by with no sequel.
Now four years later Rothfuss is back again with the eagerly anticipated sequel to The Name of The Wind, The Wise Man’s Fear. This is a fan’s dream come true, but if you want even more from this fantastic author you came come meet him yourself on his US tour. For Texas fans, Rothfuss will be stopping by Houston’s Murder By The Book Bookstore on March 6, 2010. This is a great opportunity for fans and new readers alike, and everyone who can should take the chance to come by and see this master of words.
