    Taken from his website:
    Why exactly is he calling this a trilogy? It's still part of SoT so why give the last three books a new name? I have not finished NE so perhaps that will help explain it??

    Sorry Cadz, but you won't get any explanations from NE... though it seems that WoT will remain the longer of the two series by a book :lol:

    Perhaps he calls it a trilogy more in the traditional sense - a story in three parts. Previously, Sword of Truth was a collection of related stories serving an underlying greater theme utilising the same characters. But now, think like the three books of Lord of the Rings, to wrap up the whole series.

    I'm guessing the plot for these books will be that Richard and Kahlan get seperated by either; one of them being kidnapped or one of them having to make a sacrifice for the people and must leave the other. They spend the whole book seperated and then reunite toward the end. ;)

    Glad to see that there's finally an end to this series. I've enjoyed the books, less with each book, but I've read a lot worse than SOT.

    I wonder what Goodkind will write after this "trilogy".

    Does it matter? So long as it's something unrelated to the world of SoT.

    I guess my question was, is he going to continue in the "fantasy"(he doesn't call SOT, fantasy) genre or is he going to write in another genre?

    I am so thrilled about his next book Chainfire. I know that the SoT books seem to go on forever, but now, I can't believe they're coming to an end soon. I really hope that Terry Goodkind writes more fantasy. It is my favorite genre and I love how he incorporates real-life issues in different ways. I can't wait to read anything else he writes. :)

    If I recall correctly Terry or Zedd (webmaster of Terry's homepage) indicated he was planning on a philosophy/nonfiction book.

    I'm with Kanin - I'm looking forward to seeing what he does next.

    I hope it's fiction....and I also hope he can escape the Eddings-esque 'rewrite the last series' trap.....but I'm not holding my breath.

    Also, with 3 more books to write yet, it could be quite a while.....!

    That is exiting. Even though I don't normally like nonfiction, I like philosophy, especially reading what Goodkind said in his letters and chats on the SoT homepage. I would definitely read it.

    As an avid Goodking fan and reader, I am very excited about this.

    I would also be thrilled to read any nonfiction he might publish, as he and I share many of the same ideas.
