I'm fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss - AMA
Heya everybody, I'm Patrick Rothfuss.
I'm a fantasy author.
I'm a father. My son is three.
I also run a charity called Worldbuilders. Over the last four years we've raised over 1.5 million dollars for Heifer International.
You can ask any question.
Bite-sized questions are best. I'd rather answer 80 questions instead of spending all my time writing up 3-4 long, detailed answers and having to ignore everyone else as a result.
One question per comment is best. It's just simpler and easier that way. It's going to be hard for me to write a carefully structured essay answering your five-part question.
I reserve the right to lie, make jokes, or ignore your question.
4b. If I ignore your question, it’s not because I hate you. It’s probably just because I don’t have anything witty to say on the subject.
I reserve the right to be honest, snarky, or flippant. Either consecutively or concurrently.
I won’t answer spoiler-ish questions about the books.
I will be back at 8PM Central to answer questions.
[Edit at 10:15 PM:] Merciful Buddha. I thought I was getting to the end of the list, when it turns out I was just getting to the end of the first 500 comments. I'll stop back tomorrow and take another quick poke through things, and answer a few more questions. But for now, I've used up all my words. I need to get a little nap in, then do some more writing tonight. Thanks for a great time everybody.
