It is coming....

Ever since I posted up the pictures of the nunchucks someone sent me, I've been getting e-mail asking all sorts of questions from who want to get their books signed. Some people want to know if I'll sign them as gifts to other people, other people want to buy copies of the college survival guide, other folks are worried that the thing they're sending along won't be cool enough.


I just wanted to mention that I'm planning something. Something that will involve signed books, among other things.

So if you're thinking of sending in your book to get it signed, you might want to wait for a little bit. Very soon there will be a opportunities for people to get signed copies of all sorts of things. I just need a little more time to work out the details.

If you've already sent in your book, that's fine. I'll still sign it.

But otherwise, wait for a little bit, and stay tuned....

Shit!
If a horse in a tutu turns up at your door with a naked virgin on its back, grasping a copy of TNOTW, just ignore it.

Depends on why she is a virgin, If she looks like Jaba the Hut in a wig, I will call the police.


also horses make a mess if they aren't house broken.

I think I am going to be haunted by the vision of Jabba in a wig for the rest of the day now.

Cheers Kip. Ya sicko!

Aw... heck.

Last time you were offering signed stuff, Pat, I ended up riding a plastic warhorse named Thunderplum, kneeling in awed homage to your great book, dangling off a building like an idiot, and treating four separate copies of NOTW to a candlelit bubbly bath.

Looks like I'll have to grease up the camera again, 'cause I'm in for some good times.

Also, Pat, new word I heard today - pogonotrophy. I think this word belongs to you.

If there's going to be a contest, I'll have to put my Navy uniform to use one last time. Maybe as one of the Village People...

Oh, what fun to be had!

@ marky -- you made me laugh.

@ kip -- Any horse trained well enough to endure a freak show like Jabba in a wig is probably also house-trained!

"all sorts of things?" Careful, some people might take you literally!

@Plucky: Doh! I did break the stream of random horseplay comments, didn't I? Sorry about that. Don't trust a sailor to recognize tricky wordplay patterns. There's a reason I took the ASVAB vice the SAT.

I should send in my signed copy of NOTW to get signed AGAIN! I bet it would be the only signed signed copy in existence.

Ooh, ooh, I'm excited!

So one would think. But maybe the horse is just scared that Jabba woman will eat him. And once being freed he is so happy he takes to running up and down the stairs all night, and drinking from the toilet. These things happen sometimes.

And thus, the awesome-vortex created will destroy us all, man.

Damn it all, ye can nay do it!

Joe: Great job. Ye couldnae tell ye wur fae another country. It's like talkin tae wan o the family. Pure dead brilliant, so ye ur.

Kip: I can picture the nightmares you've just implanted in my mind.

There I am, trying to go for my morning wiz, miny-me in hand, sleep in my eyes, fumbling in the dark for the light switch. I turn the light on. I am suddenly confronted with Laura's oompa loompa guide horse with its head in my toilet bowl. "Haw" I shout. “Get yer heed oot ma chunky Mr Ed." The horse looks up and gives me one of those stupid horse grins. Then suddenly, I'm twatted in the back of the noggin by something hard. I pass out.
I wake up four hours later with a gold bikini on, and I am chained to Jabba-woman. The horse still has the stupid grin on its face.

Pat, what about the release date for book 2, is that correct to be April 2009?

Thanks for clarifying that one, Marky. I thought you actually had a mini-me, and I was going to ask where you got one of those. Alas, I already have one...

Mr. Rothfuss, I am new to the blog, but I am an eternal fan of your book since it came out. I was just wondering if you are going to write in its entirety, The Lay of Sir Savien Tralliard? please?

Blogger Captain Joe said...

Nathan, you may be fresh blood (hey, by the way), but you have just asked the most awesome question ever!

1200 Pat Points to you, sir.

So, Pat. Please?

Dear Patrick
Thankyou for the magic piece of literature I finished about half an hour ago. And damn you to hell to just leave me hanging like that. I am living in a provincial backwater in the wilds of Western Australia - Is there more to this story that I have not been able to find in this part of the world? More please. I am hooked. HELP ME!!
Love and Loathing
Sasha

But...Marky never said the virgin was a woman...
So you're probably going to get a spotty naked guy clutching a D+D guide.
Who will probably be fourteen.
...Enjoy?
