"I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths my moonlight that most people fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me." The Name of the Wind, Patrick Rothfuss I'm the kind of author who's into games and movies as well as books. The three are some kind of sort-of holy Trifecta. I'd like to have authored all three. I'm into various forms of fantasy and science fiction. I'm writing a post-apocalyptic urban fantasy with superheroes, a sword and sorcery/epic fantasy, a (sort of) steampunk action/adventure story with occult happenings, and a mecha-vs-kaiju story. I live in Australia, which is regarded as "the place where everything can kill you". I have a beard. I've gotten so much praise for this, but I just see it as, well, a beard.
