A Deeply Mediocre Blog with Truly Excellent Art

Heya Everybody,

As I write this on Saturday night, our Geeks Doing Good sale has just crested up over $95,000.

I feel pretty good about that. This is a hard time to do fundraising, and it’s a hard time to do things that are lighthearted and fun. I’ve done a bunch of streams with cool folks to help bump things around….

 

…by most metrics we’re killing it.

But at the same time, deep down, I know I haven’t done a very good job about spreading the word to y’all. Back in the day, I would have managed to post up a blog that talked in depth about all the awesome we have for sale up in there on the very first day of the fundraiser. Lots of details and effusive praise and good pictures that *really* show things off to good effect.

I haven’t managed that this year. And it’s so galling to me because I know a lot of you would be really interested in this stuff if only I was better at bringing it to your attention.

For example, Marc Simonetti is letting us use the art from some of the French editions of the books to make some nice high-quality art prints.

Prints like this:

And this:

And this…

They’re a super cheap introductory price over in the Indigogo, and on top of that, you can get all of them in a 3-pack for even less…

We’ve got First Edition Hardcover copies of Jim Butcher’s Peace Talks for sale there, with special bookplates designed by Nate Taylor:

AND Satine Phoenix:

(You get to pick which one you want.)

Also four new t-shirts, including one like this:

 

If you’re feeling crafty, we have this:

 

I could go on and on… We’ve got arted-in copies of Slow Regard, limited-edition board games, book upon books, fancy Tak sets…

There’s just a for-real lot of stuff over there.

Sorry I’m not getting this blog up sooner. And sorry that it’s not prettier, or more complete. Or funnier. But it’s already almost 1 am, and I haven’t had any dinner yet tonight, and I’m worried if I don’t post this now, it will end up getting added to the 200+ half-finished blogs I know I’ll never finish.

That’s all I’ve got except to remind y’all that there’s only two days left to grab some cool geeky swag and make the world a better place at the same time.

If you haven’t gone over to look yet, please check it out. Especially the Brand-New game bundle that’s our new featured item. We only posted that up on Friday.

And now, bed for me…

    This is Fantastic Pat! I need 2 get some those book plates! Also, when I told my Wisconsin friend I had just finished Wise Mans Fear on Facebook, they said they knew you well because their sister Sarah was you “ex”? And I thought that cannot be true, they were so cute singing together not too long ago. This person is just trying to “fake news” ;) me I think, that would be so sad for Oot and Cutie Snoo and youre such a great father! But I just am tired of people spreading rumors about yuo and keep on acting like theyre entitled to your book like that troll Jomi. Write at your own pace, we love you Pat!

    Pat, thanks for starting the blog posts again. I used to check your blog every day at work for new posts. I know the fundraisers are both important to you and important in and of themselves, but I hope you also bring back some direct fan interaction. I liked the posts of fan art, and book photo contests, and things like that you used to do too.

    I know you catch crap about book 3, but there is a silent majority out there still being patient. I’m actually re-reading both books right now, in the middle of book two, and noticing things I haven’t in previous reads. I don’t want to see book 3 until it’s perfectly ready to go.

    All I want to say is fuck the haters! I appreciate the hell out of you and your team and all the good you’ve done. I got to volunteer once to help with packing prizes and they were some of the most awesome people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.

Take care of yourself and know that your community will be here and enjoy hearing from you when you’re able to speak.

    Thanks Pat! Managed to get in with less than an hour to spare! Would’ve backed more, but it looks like there’s no way to make multiple orders at once, and I’d rather not pay the international shipping fee each time (but if there’s a way to do so after the fact, will happily add some posters in to the existing order).

And if you pay attention closely, you’ll notice as well, as soon as the fundraising end, he goes back to his cave and radio silence.

    Thanks for the update Pat. My father just went through months of chemo for anteparietal gland cancer, but it was not successful and really withered him down to nothing. He’s in palliative care now, I visit him every day I can – I text him whenever I’m not around, but he’s not tech saavy so he never responds. But yesterday, while I was at work, I received this text from him:

    ‘Son I am proud of you. Thank you for caring for me all these months.’

    And I broke down right then and there in loud, gasping sobs. It just made me realize – with those few words, just then, he had typed more words to me than you have typed for Doors of Stone all year

    Have you considered answering non-spoiler questions for charity? For example, I’ve got 3. I’b buy them, well, donate to worldbuilders, $10 for each satisfactory* answered question.

    *A satisfactory answer constitutes a short story maybe possibly in someway related to the question. An unsatisfactory answer is like, yup that’s a valid question. That’s a fine answer, just not one I feel is worth $10.

    Here are the questions

    1. I’m in a long distance relationship and my partner and I often use emoticons to add emotional context to the written word. Did your experience as a writer of things (e.g. describing emotions with text), and the Advent of emoticons specifically, inspire the hand gestures of the Adem language?

    2. Hypothetically, let’s say an Adem shopkeeper wakes up in the morning and is having a no good very bad time of it. Maybe a late night party or the common cold is the cause. Regardless, the Adem goes to work, the first customer of the day comes in, the Adem says “Morning” and gives the hand gesture for bright friendly smile.

    Is being deceptive about emotion as common in Ademre as it is, in say, corporate America?

    3. Thinking about the shopkeeper repeating the same bright friendly smile hand gesture over and again on a 30 year time line has me wondering if you have made notes about the impact of arthritis on Ademre culture somewhere.

    Actually, hold on a second:: I seem to remember there was some kind of of balm/tincture used after Kvothe cut his hand on the sword tree leaf. There is a story I remember you telling of having a detailed economic system, but what makes it into the books is like a single coin. Is the balm/tincture used on Kvothe’s hand the proverbial coin from your write-up of Arthritis and Ademre medicine?

    Let me know if you are interested in my $10 donation/question proposal. I think you get my email when I submit the post.

    Will you make a post in reply to Betsy Wollheim’s post about not receiving a word of book 3? I recall a draft posted up in 2013 and understand you were not satisfied. I perused your old blogs, read about book 2’s delay. I hate that you have this burden to bear, it makes me almost tear up that something that must have given you so much joy at a time has basically turned into an engine of hate against you. Don’t take my advice, who the fuck am I right? But you wrote a blog once and basically laid it all out straight X wasn’t working, I wrote 60k in 6 weeks the book needed because it needed it for x or y reasons. You don’t owe people anything, fuck it, you only live once. But if you felt like placating your fans, I imagine something along those lines would do the trick. Anyway, that’s all. I hope you and your family are safe and weathering the madness that America seems to be from an outside observer.

    Do you not think radio silence is a bit unfair to all the people who have held loyal faith over the years. You don’t owe anyone an update but it would be a nice gesture to do. You ask people to donate to your charity and support you all in all do, they are just asking for a little something in return. You can’t pretend not to hear their voices and just look the other way. Then ask for something from them when you want it.

      But don’t expect any news about the book.. He didn’t even address the comments made by his publisher let alone giving you updates… Move on with your life mate, forget about it and maybe one day you’ll hear about it but then you’ll be like…meh :D

    Whenever I sometimes read this blog, I do not wonder about book 3 anymore. I wonder about Patricks health, and worry about him being depressed or having serious mental issues. And then, I forget about my wishes for book 3 (which I do still have) and hope for all the best for him, his wife and his kids.

    Because I understand that all the people longing for DoS can be a real burden sometimes, especially after 10 years. And I hope that Patrick knows that although also I am waiting for book 3, I can forget it if if not publishing it (anytime soon) would be a solution for his health and future.

    Your metaphor is false. No one is saying he needs a new or more successful job. They’re saying he should continue to do the job he already had and, frankly, finish a job he’s left undone. Legally and financially he owes his fans nothing (his publisher might be a different story). But from an ethical standpoint we payed for the first two books on the promise – from him – that there would be a third (some of us multiple copies of each book including audio versions and collectors editions), a promise unfulfilled and unlikely to ever be kept at this point.
    Also, “get a life”? Projection much?

    Pat,

    This year for Christmas we took a portion of the money we were going to spend on the kids and instead bought a cow through worldbuilders. They got “their cow” on Christmas morning and then got to learn that because they received a few less presents, a family that really needed help now could have milk everyday (my kids love milk, we go though about 10 gallons a week). They thought it was cool and then resumed their regular Christmas activities.

    Today I received a package from worldbuilders containing a couple of books, a started deck for a storytelling game, and most of all a letter signed by you. I am a 39 year old man with 5 kids and was totally stoked, running around the house and showing it to them and explaining who you were and how cool it was that you actually took the time to sign it yourself. It totally made my day, it was like Christmas in August, and I just wanted to let you know it was very much appreciated.

    I appreciate that you care enough to do that, Thank You!

    I started reading Book 1 this weekend, just off and on. I was enjoying it, so I thought I would look up a bit about the author and the series. This led me down the same path that many of you have no doubt followed for many years and the discovery that the final book is like 10 years over due or something.
    Thankfully, I am only about a third of the way through the book. It won’t be a problem to ditch it for something else. I, like most of you, have been down this road already with Song of Ice and Fire. There is no point putting myself in a situation where I am waiting an absurd amount of time for a story to end.
    The respective authors have the outlines, know how the stories end and have plenty of time to do lots of other things, even other writing. So, it seems naive to believe that the delays in finishing these series are in any way normal or reasonable. There is obviously something else at work here. My best guess would be that the authors fear some sort of emptiness in their lives if they finish their works. I also suspect that the angst and frustration of their readers feeds into their megalomania.
    I feel bad for those of you who have waited this long. If the trilogy ever gets finished, I am sure I will enjoy reading it then.
    In the meantime, anyone else recommend any good sci-fi or fantasy books?

      Everyone will recommend you the basic stuff like sanderson and Jordan. I think they’re ok, but cliche and flat. If you like spectacle, go for it.
      I would really reccomend Malazan, Black Company, First Law (got fans love this) and Dresden files. If you want more info just reply and I’ll ttyl.

        I was considering Dresden (are they Glen Cook?) I loved the Black Company. Malazan was excellent, although I found it a difficult read. I keep meaning to give First Law a shot.

        I ended up starting Mistborn. I had not read anything of Sanderson aside from the last few Wheel of Time. So far, it is ok, not as good as Name of the Wind, but I won’t be waiting in futility for 10 years either :)

        The more I read about this author, the attitude towards the readership and the “charity”, it really makes me wonder whether there will ever be a book 3.

          I’ve read all of Sanderson’s books. Some are better than others. The biggest draw for me is that his universe (Cosmere) connects most of his books (Mistborn, war breaker, Elantris, Way of Kings etc) Most authors write in one word, his explores literally a universe. Additionally, I appreciated the fact that Mistborn does not end after the trilogy. He has a more modern era Mistborn trilogy with plans on a third trilogy taking place in the future. Its interesting seeing the evolution of a magic system in conjunction with technology.

    In an interview a while back Pat mentioned he was working on a book in Temerant called Lanaeyel(?) Young Again (beautiful title by the way) about an older woman who decides to embark on an adventure in her later years that sounded really interesting but said his editor would rather him work on book 3 1st even though LYA was quite far along. Honestly Lanaeyel Young Again sounds more interesting to me than book 3. I wish people would just support Pat as a writer and let him work on what he wants instead of insisting on one thing. He would be happier, you would be happier. He would be much more likely to write something for people to enjoy in the Kingkiller downtime as he whittles away at that series and crafts it into something he is proud of. Maybe Lanaeyel becomes some people’s favorite book. Maybe once Doors of Stone is released he will be so sick of the fantasy community he will never write again and the world will be a sadder place. Sadder than it already is. Just another example of the bad crushing the will of the good under their selfish heels. Save those heels for somebody who actually deserves it. If you’re the type who would get angry at me for asking you to be kind to a man who’s only ‘crime’ is not writing a book (think about that carefully), then I hate to say it but you have a serious problem, and every second you decry his not working on Doors of Stone is a second you should be spending working on yourself.
