I read that it's out!  It's called Doors of Stone.  I found 4 ISBN numbers, but apparently it's only been released in England.  Everyone has been complaining that it's taken too long for the 3rd book to come out, and now I don't see how you get it?  I absolutely loved #1 and #2.

I'll  keep an eye out.  A few more eyes wouldn't hurt.

There is a new book out of Ariana Franklin's titled Winter Siege that her daughter finished.   I had to go to Amazon.uk for it, but it arrived right away.   Only published at this time in England.

Edit:   This post made no sense at all!  crying   What I was trying to say to you is that you can order these books that are only available in UK thru Amazon.UK.    I think it was slightly more expensive but totally worth it for me and the five neighbors waiting to read it next.....smiley

Today in the Dallas Morning News, on the best seller list at #4 is Patrick Rothfuss' new novel, The Slow Regard of Silent Things.  Huh?  I was wrong about the name of the Kingkiller Chronicles? No, this book is a story about one of the lesser characters in the series, Auri.  I had read he was going to publish this sometime, but somehow we got the Auri story and England got the Kingkiller. I'll be interested in seeing how Kingkiller makes its way into America.  And WHEN.

I think you might be wrong on this. It could be a placeholder on the sites, not the actual release. Rothfuss has not mentioned it at all in his blog at any point; save for the fact that he is constantly at war with trying to alter and edit it to perfection. So, he has a draft or two written but he had mentioned more than once, that he is still trying to change and finish it to a point he finds it is a 5 out of 5, rather than a 3 or a 4.

 

Edit/p.s.

Just double checked on amazon.co.uk. The book is not out yet and there is no current release date set as of yet. I did notice though, that the covers for the UK versions are very nice. Might pick myself up one or two.

See?  Sometimes I can be helpful.  How much were they? Do you remember?
