Welcome to Episode 11 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we talk about the life of a bestselling fantasy author with, well, a bestselling fantasy author! Pat Rothfuss, whose sequel to his acclaimed debut novel The Name of the Wind, The Wise Man’s Fear, has hit #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List, checks in with us to discuss the development and progress of his career. Over the course of the discussion, though, Pat touches on more topics than those simply related to writing, including his Worldbuilders project on behalf of Heifer International. If you like what you hear, don’t forget to keep checking back for our follow-up video interview with Pat, which we plan to record later this summer–and in the meantime, check back with us next week as we plunge into Eclipse Four, the latest new fantasy and science fiction anthology from Night Shade Books. As always, thanks for listening, and please continue to spread the word about the show!
