No, you don't look fat. I think you look less sprightly than in the first video but that's a plus as far as I'm concerned.

Your tag sure made me giggle.
I like listening to you talk about things you'd like to write. It's interesting. It also gives me hope for more books after the Kingkiller trilogy is finished ;)

It warms my heart to hear you talk about future works. I just know you'll keep me properly entertained for years to come. I'm counting on you, Pat! But no pressure.

I was excited to hear you speak about the world you designed, and how you'd like to tell other stories in it. I've been re-reading NOTW; this time aloud to my wife. (It's hard to find a book to read to her.) We're about 3/4 through, and she is starting to worry about reaching the end. She's not happy about depending on some "weird writer guy"(her words) for the rest of Qvothe's story. I wasn't sure how to respond.

urban might have fun writing that...personally not into urban fantasies (would American Gods be considered an urban fantasy? that one did nothing for me even though it was well received)....Course i doubt you'll ask the reading public what they want to read before you write it.....more 'high' 'epic' fantasy please, there's not enough 'good' fantasy out there worth reading.

I think it would be so awesome to read something you told in a different narrative voice, but in your style. Because considering what you've done with the tools of "epic fantasy," I think reading something you did in the "urban fantasy" setting, even as a satire, would be just fantastic. And it's so good just to hear that once you finish Kvothe's story you're not just going to sit back and go, "MY WORK HERE IS DONE!" =D

Thanks for posting part two of the interview. I tried to join the website but my info was never accepted, so I missed both of the other parts.

I hope you will be kind enough to post part three in a few days.

I am probably your oldest fan and have been so since your book first came out last April. I am so impressed with your work and the time and intensity you are putting into the second and third books.

It makes me proud to be a fan!

Ah. Gosh. Good things and books to come. Good to know.

The more I read The Name of the Wind, the more gob smacked I am at the sheer amount of world contained therein. It's got a layer of awesome and then a layer of complexity and then a layer of awesome again. (Like pie.) As a writer, I really have to respect that.

And as a writer, I definitely wouldn't happen to be counting down the days to next April with an expectant, if frustrated, expression. Nope.

Yes. Exactly like pie. Extra points for you.

Na. You don't look fat dude. A wise man always carries an extra bit of timber in case he needs the chubby warmth in a survival situation. Just got my copy of Subterranean tales of Dark Fantasy in. So looking forward to reading it. Bring on the lunch break!

Shakespeare's use of the word SALT!? How annoying and frustrating.

I think Shakespeare would be on your side there. It is amusing to imagine Shakespeare listening to the Prof. assign you that topic.

I have noticed that most post- graduate programs share that rigidity which is odd because I had always imagined the opposite would be the case. Foolish mortal!

A friend of mine once asked a Prof. point blank why he had to take a certain unnecessary class. The reply was a tart "Because you want to be a doctor."

I can't wait to see the third installment. I did feel a bit defensive on behalf of Dante though. ;)

I would definitely enjoy your version of the urban fantasy. Somehow i imagine it as a head on collision between A Separate Peace, Animal House, and the good fairies of new york.

I just let out a squeal of anticipation with the thought of you writing urban fantasy.

of course not. lol

but um, . . .
as a photographer, I could give you the advice that images (or video) taken from an above angle is universally more flattering.... That is unless you're one of those twiggy sticks like Nichole Richie, in which case an angle from below is more flattering....

Thanx Pat! The video is being shared as we speak... or write... like, now...
It's good to know that you have a world. That may sound silly, but it is really like you say. Your scenes are not made of cardboard. You know, while you read, that there is more. I believe that that is one of the things that made Tolkien great.

If you have the time. Can you answer this question?
With what did you start, story or world?
It's kind of something I'm figuring out at this moment. My story seems to stall because my/our world is not yet fully completed... I would just like to know what the master did.

Less talk-y, more write-y! See, however nifty it was to see the face and hear the voice who created "The Four Corners" AND "Qvothe", all I could think as you were talking was, "he should be writing right now so I don't have a meltdown and loose my mind waiting for more stories!?".

Sad, I know but I just got back from a very long trip to the Atlantic Ocean and Qvothes voice kept me company through the two days of constant driving. I'm now, addicted and completely at your mercy so stop talking, start writing! ;)
