We here at NETV are proud to announce that Patrick Rothfuss has contacted us and has asked us to announce his new book before anyone else! We’re going to give you some words from Pat himself, the cover art and we’ll also give you an exclusive look at the first few pages of the new book! This will include spoilers from many of the Kingkiller books, so if you haven’t read them yet you may want to wait to read this article.
The book will be a side story from the Kingkiller Chronicle much like Rothfuss’ recent work The Slow Regard of Silent Things. This work will take place between The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear.
It begins shortly after Bast explains his plan to Chronicler and leaves the room at the end of The Name of the Wind. As soon as Bast has climbed down from the roof and left Chronicler to think about what he has said, another stranger enters the room. And his name is Denzel Crocker.
As promised, here are the first few pages of the book!
This is all we’ve been authorized to share with you, but we can tell you that the story follows the lives of Chronicler and Crocker as they travel across the Fae kingdoms, destroying Fairies and bringing true doom to the world of Bast.
Here’s the first look at the new cover art!
Rothfuss told us, “I’ve been meaning to write something like this for a while. Anyone who follows my blog knows that Crocker was the inspiration for a lot of characters in the series, Kvothe in particular, so it just make sense to put a true fairy hunter directly into the story. I’m actually thinking of ditching the whole Kvothe story and following Chronicler and Crocker as they continue to hunt fairies. It just seems more interesting, honestly. I might even put Dean and Sam from Supernatural in it. That seems like the next logical step. I’m getting sued by Viacom for infringement of copyright and my editors aren’t very happy with me, but I rarely listen to their advice anyway.”
So there it is! The new novel is called The Crockerkiller Chronicles Book 1: Seven Words to Make a FAIRY Love You and it’s set to drop as soon as Rothfuss can work out his serious legal trouble regarding the obvious copyright infringement. Not to fear though! He told us “If 50 Shades of Gray can become a successful fan fiction franchise, so too can my Crocker fan fiction. I won the Quill Award after all. If anyone can finally bring fan fictions the respect they deserve it’s me. This guy. [At which point he pointed at himself.] Patrick Rothfuss.”
