The Name of the Wind by Patrick RothfussI know… I know! Another post about Patrick Rothfuss, brilliant author and hot topic here on A Dribble of Ink, but what can I say? I love the man, the rest of the Fantasy world loves the man, and my interview with him (Part One | Part Two) is still seeing a generous amount of traffic. Today’s edition of the “Patrick Rothfuss Tribune” covers his recent victory at “The Quill Book Awards”. Rothfuss’ first novel, The Name of the Wind, was just named the “Best Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror Novel of the Year“! The best thing about this is that Rothfuss’ novel is automatically eligible for the “Quill” for novel of the year… and it’s a public vote! Definitely a worthy contender for the award, though I’m curious about them being held so early in the year… aren’t there still several great books coming out before 2007 ends?
