Giveaway – The Name of the Wind (3/12/2012)

Still playing The Witcher II, so I might see if I can’t get another copy of the game to give away. However, this week’s offer is the Name of the Wind by New York Times Bestseller Pat Rothfuss. This is the Gollancz-50 yellow hardback edition with an introduction by yours truly. If you haven’t read it, you should know that the writing is simply gorgeous.

Usual deal – comment on this post before December 8th and I’ll randomly select a lucky victim for a free copy of the book.Now I always figured that The Name of the Wind (and probably the rest of the series) was secretly the back-story for a high-level AD&D bard character that Pat has stashed away somewhere, so the challenge this week (as I am a fan of the Bard class) is to present the character name for an AD&D Bard. You can either tell me the name of a character you’ve actually played, or just make one up. First person clever enough to link this with the previous giveaway will definitely get a bonus goody (if they win)[1].

Although, though no one has yet complained about how long it takes me to get to the post office and post things, it can take a while and if you live abroad then it can take even longer. Sorry about that, but they do get there eventually. Well, so far.

News~ No. I have lazed about playing The Witcher for the last few days. There is vaguely significant news for US Thief-Taker fans, but I’ll give that a post of its own once I’m entirely sure of what’s available and what’s not.

[1] Exciting bonus goody not guaranteed to be exciting. Actually it’s often a postcard. Which is pretty lame, but I’ll make it a pen this time.

    I once had a bard character named Lorat Breezebreath, halfling i believe he was. This book looks awesome, quite like the yellow cover too!

    Hope I’m not to late, special looking bookcover when you’ve seen the others.
