Производитель: "Orion Publishing Group Ltd"

`I just love the world of Patrick Rothfuss.` - Lin-Manuel Miranda `He s bloody good, this Rothfuss guy.` - George R. R. Martin `Rothfuss has real talent.` -Terry Brooks Deep below the University, there is a dark place. Few people know of it: a broken web of ancient passageways and abandoned rooms. A young woman lives there, tucked among the sprawling tunnels of the Underthing, snug in the heart of this forgotten place. Her name is Auri, and she is full of mysteries. The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a brief, bittersweet glimpse of Auri s life, a small adventure all her own. At once joyous and haunting, this story offers a chance to see the world through Aurir s eyes. And it gives the reader a chance to learn things that only Auri knows.... In this book, Patrick Rothfuss brings us into the world of one of The Kingkiller Chronicle s most enigmatic characters. Full of secrets and mysteries, The Slow Regard of Silent Things is the story of a broken girl trying to live in a broken world. ISBN:978-1-473-20933-6

] 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.
