Patrick Rothfuss today announced that his eagerly awaited follow-up to The Name of the Wind finally has a publication date. According to his blog, The Wise Man’s Fear will be released in February 2011. Originally expected to be complete in 2008, the author’s sophomore effort is sure to be a huge seller despite the delays. If you haven’t read The Name of the Wind yet, now’s a good time to pick it up. While I didn’t enjoy it as much as I have works by Martin, Erikson or Bakker, Name of the Wind was definitely entertaining and really showed a lot of promise for the future. Here’s to hoping that Rothfuss is able to live up to the built up expectations and avoid a sophomore slump.
