The Name of the Wind

Told in Kvothe's own voice, this is the tale of the magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen. The intimate narrative of his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature. A high-action story written with a poet's hand, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that will transport readers into the body and mind of a wizard.

] He enrolled at the Stevens Point branch of the University of Wisconsin in 1991. At university he originally planned to be a chemical engineer, changed his mind to pursue a career in clinical psychology, and finally declared his major as 'Undeclared' after three years—continuing to study any subject that caught his interest. During that time, while holding odd jobs, Rothfuss workied on an extremely long fantasy novel called "The Song of Flame and Thunder". Somewhere during this time he began to write the "College Survival Guide," a column in "The Pointer", the campus paper. He continues to write this column to this day.

He graduated in 1999 with a B.A. in English. After receiving his MA at Washington State University, he returned two years later to teach at Stevens Point. After completing "The Song of Flame and Thunder", Rothfuss submitted it to several publishing companies, but it was rejected. In 2002 he won the Writers of the Future competition with "The Road to Levinshir", an excerpt from his novel.cite web

#"The Doors of Stone" (working title, scheduled for 2010)

This trilogy was originally one very long story with the working title "The Song of Flame and Thunder". It was split in three for publication due to its length. The series is essentially the autobiography of a famous musician, wizard, and adventurer named Kvothe. After gaining notoriety at a young age, he disappears from public life and is eventually tracked down to a backwater inn by Devan Lochees, who goes by the name 'Chronicler'. After some persuasion, Chronicler convinces Kvothe to tell him his life story. However, the story is occasionally punctuated by interludes, during which it becomes clear that someone is looking for Kvothe, and that Kvothe's friend Bast is unwilling to let Chronicler tell all of Kvothe's story. The story thus proceeds on two levels, as we learn how Kvothe came to be the man he is now, whilst other events take place in the present hinting at a greater story to follow.
