He said at the panel he was sitting on that the rewrites are actually a longer process than starting from scratch, because he was constantly having to check through the entire series in order to ensure he had continuity throughout, a much longer process than he ever expected. I suspect it's getting even more critical that he checks for continuity the closer he gets to completion.
    C'mon Pat! You can do it!! lol

Now the first Song of Ice and Fire book came out in 1996, followed by books 2 & 3 in 1998 and 2000.  Then we waited 5 years for the next and then another 6 years for the last one.  There are 2 more in the works.  I really hope I live long enough to see the end.
    Patrick Rothfuss published his first book that I mentioned in 2009 and the second one came out this year, 2013.  So 4 years.....just a little worried about that.  
    Wise Man's Fear came out in 2011, not 2013 (unless you live in a country where it wasn't released until later?). And Name of the Wind was out in 2007. So still a four year difference, but we're going into year three so not much longer. Wink

    It also helps that this will be a trilogy, so the Doors of Stone (I think that's what the third book will be called) will be the last in the series.

    Unsure. I know that the sequel to The Way of Kings is the next to be published... and that he plans on writing more Mistborn novels.
    Sanderson has said he will publish three trilogies in the Mistborn world, counting the first one already published, each set in different time periods.

    He's already started one in an industrial revolution/western type of society with Alloy of Law. It's a fun read, but lacks the punch Mistborn had. Weirdly this trilogy isn't included in the three he said he'd write... he just worked on it for fun, then realized it was good and he should publish it. Fucking genius... I hate and love him for it. Razz

    The next trilogy is supposed to be about a SWAT-like team of magic users, the third is supposed to be in a futuristic sci-fi setting.

    The next Stormlight Archive book is due to come out March 4th, it's called Words of Radiance.

    I have some mighty doubts as to whether or not this is going to end the story. I mean, it's possible certainly, but I have a feeling the end is the beginning.

    The trilogy will end Kvothe's retelling his life's story (to that point). Rothfuss has already signed a deal for a new trilogy, and lots of rumours say that it will pick up his story AFTER he finishes telling his story to the Chronicler.

    Here's a guy who has SO much going on it's crazy. He's got his Mistborn trilogies, the Stormlight saga, and though I haven't read it yet, I imagine Steelheart is just the beginning of either a trilogy or a longer series. You could almost say that completing the Wheel of Time was just a bump in the road for him. The only author I can think of that churns out more is James Patterson, and Patterson seems to co-write a lot of his stories with other authors.

    Sanderson has a ton going on. Here's his latest "what's going on with brandon" blog.

    This is probably the best thing I've heard all day. I knew there was no way the whole story was done. Even the retelling of his own story seemed like it was still far from over for just one book to contain.

    The Wild Road by Jennifer Roberson is up next, mainly because it is a library book and I don't want to have to renew it again. Will probably reread The Golden Compass after that... it has been a few years and I'm kind of "missing" it lately.

    Currently reading People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks. I'm about 3/4 of the way through it, and I'm quite liking it so far. The main POV is current day, with little tales throughout history that pertain to the life of the book that is the center of the story (it's a jewish Haggadah (sp?) that's being examined by a current day manuscript expert.

    It's not fantasy, but it's a good book. Wink

    Just read that a little while ago. Great book, kinda gets super depressing in the middle, but I recommend highly.

    Just started reading Somewhere in Time by Richard Matheson (same guy who wrote What Dreams May Come and I am Legend). I first saw the movie, which my late Aunt introduced me to, and which I love. I think when I first started reading all I could think of was her, so it made me read with rose-colored glasses, but now I just kinda want to slap the protagonist and tell him to man up. We'll see how it goes...

    You know what would be crazy? The sequel could take place during a three day period a few decades down the road, and involve a three-day telling of his story following the point where the original trilogy took off. Wink

    Things Fall Apart was about a Guy in Africa (not sure where since it didn't use current place names).  It starts with how life was and then at the end white missionaries come and change everything.

    Now I'm reading Broken For You by Stephanie Kallos.
