    Glad I woke up at 3am to buy my copy too. But wondering how much it was on Tinker's Pack? I got the email and they were already gone when I clicked the link.

    The slipcased limited copies were $110.. so with the $7 shipping they were just slightly less expensive. They did have a snafu so I think many of you will be glad you didn't get in on it. They originally had it up to sell unlimited copies. I was able to get some but then I received a refund with a note that they actually only had 4 copies and those sold out right away.

    I can probably find this info by randomly searching, but since I don't want spoilers (I'm only 157 pages into The Name Of The Wind, and it is going well), I will ask all of you and hope that someone knows:

    Has a release date been set for book 3 (The Doors Of Stone)? If not, is there a general window (2018? 2019?) for when we should expect it?
    ...can you imagine only finding 6 people - 2 parents, 2 siblings (of 6!), a cousin, and an ex-fiancee - who would actually pay attention?

    Book 2 (The Wise Man's Fear) came out in 2011 - is PR pulling a GRRM on us?

    Per https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1222526753:

    Pat Rothfuss made a bet. If his charity team page raises $333,333 before he kills the Ender Dragon, he'll read a chapter from Doors of Stone
    Let's hope this means that Doors of Stone is either done, close to done, or reaching meaningful critical mass in some way.

    It's funny; I thought my previous post would be helpful to anyone who hadn't heard the "good" news, but...not so fast.

    In a blog post written after the initial wager: https://blog.patrickrothfuss.com/202...oors-of-stone/

    …Rothfuss says:
    - the initial wager was for the prologue (no chapter)
    - he lost this wager but forgot about it overnight (brother, pleeeeeeease)
    - he then offered fans the choice of the prologue (which they'd already won) or a new higher-stakes wager in its place with a higher donation amount required to "win," but which would add a chapter on top of the prologue, as well as some pages from a comic he’s working on.

    ...and then:
    - the fans chose the new wager
    - the fans hit the new level ("won")
    - Rothfuss then (reportedly) began hemming and hawing again...

    Time for a ramble:

    From the 1970s through the 1980s, there was constant talk of replacing the original Boston Garden (where the Celtics and Bruins played) with a new one because it was old and sucked. Occasional "it's coming" comments from various people in/around the Bruins or city government regularly appeared in the news while the wait dragged, but the more logical among us ultimately adopted a position expressed in the simple statement "let me know when they order the steel."

    My point: I don't want to hear one more word about DOS until someone orders some Goddamn steel (and what is the novel-publishing equivalent of ordering the steel - should we be watching the schedules of his editor, of a particular printing facility, or what?)

    He did say that he would read the prologue before the end of the fundraiser (I don't know when the fundraiser ends...) at around 3:40:00 of this:

    Rothfuss needs to sort himself out. He’s clearly having big problems finishing, either because he doesn’t have the ability to pull it all together, or because the pressure of meeting readers’ expectations is driving him to paralysis or endless rewriting. But either way, he has to find a way past this self absorbed prima donna funk he’s in and work to finish the damned thing.

    Whether that’s getting off social media or writing something completely different and coming back to it later, I have no idea. Maybe it will take another five years, or 10, or never. But I’m skeptical that DOS is anywhere close to done, or that we will ever see it published unless Rothfuss does something different from what he’s doing.

    Update: supposedly he'll read the prologue on Tuesday Dec 14, on which day he's also having some kind of Q&A re: book 3.

    Someday...

    He seems to spend a lot of time interacting with the fanbase on everything but #3; if I were in his shoes, I'd want to keep a lower profile and not have to spend so much time not discussing the single thing his audience cares most about.

    I feel for the guy. He went from being nobody to being one of the most successful and well-respected fantasy writers, on pretty much his first time out. He holds himself not just to his own high standards for Doors of Stone, but to his perceived fan expectations for it, which is nigh impossibly high. His lack of experience with fame, and with writing in general, has him always feeling the work is not good enough.

    And I think social media has become a real trap for him - he obviously gets instant gratification and support from it, but its also a constant reminder of the very fans who expect the most from book three. You see his self-esteem swings in massive highs and lows, and he almost feels guilty about spending time with his family.

    That's why I think he would do well to walk away from social media and the book for a while, and write something else. Just to prove to himself that he can write - and finish - something that he's happy with when he doesn't have the pall of book 3 looming over him. Or maybe not - maybe that's not how he works. But what he's doing now does not seem healthy or productive.

    Why write when you can start an imprint?

    SEATTLE, WASH., December 13, 2021—Grim Oak Press, the small press that published the award-winning anthology Unfettered, is partnering with #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Kingkiller Chronicle Patrick Rothfuss to create the new imprint, Underthing Press. https://grimoakpress.com/
