    In a very talented generation of writers (Abercrombie, Butcher, Sanderson, Lynch..etc.) I see Rothfuss as the Major Talent.

    I'm not really a Sanderson or Butcher fan. Lynch, I've enjoyed the two books, but who knows if we'll ever see the rest of the series. Abercrombie I enjoyed. We'll see about Rothfuss.

    Not really a purchase but "Guardians of the Desert" by Leona Wisoker. Last fall I tried to order "Secrets of the Sands" by the same author from the publishers website but the download link wasn't working in my email receipt. After a email the publisher said they were having problems on their end and they would cancel the order and send a follow up email when the book was available. I never received a email so I just ordered the book from Amazon. Well last night roughly 7 months later MercuryRetrograde Press sends me an email apologizing about my very old order and attached to the email was "Secrets of the Sands" and "Guardians of the Desert". Needless to say I was flabbergasted.

    Yes, they did. The lady I dealt was extremely nice about the whole situation in the fall, but assumed that I'd never hear back from them. I'm glad I did though. I'd like to buy another book from them but nothing interests me. Maybe in the future though.

    On the way home from work today I went and bought:

    A Storm of Swords 1: Steel and Snow - George R.R. Martin
    A Storm of Swords 2: Blood and Gold - George R.R. Martin
    A Feast for Crows - George R.R. Martin

    And tomorrow I should be getting:
    A Dance With Dragons 1: Dreams and Dust - George R.R. Martin
    A Dance With Dragons 2: After the Feast - George R.R. Martin

    As you can tell, I'm really, really hating ASoIaF.
