    Rothfuss XIV: The Slow Regard of Luna Lovegood

    When I met Anne in NYC circa 2008, she told me that GRRM had pretty much scrapped everything that he had sent her and basically rewrote ADWD entirely. But final production for big names like Jordan, Martin, and Rothfuss can be done in a matter of weeks given the huge amount of money involved. Not Sure Betsy Wolheim would be willing to go down that road, what with how she took TWMF off the production line back when Rothfuss started having trouble meeting its deadline. So I figure that we're still looking at a process that will likely last between 8 to 12 months once Rothfuss turns in the manuscript. At this point, everyone at Daw will probably prefer to see it done well rather than see it done fast.

    Bakker LVI: the Rectum of Creation

    We can't know for a fact, but I sincerely doubt it. Overlook Press and genre marketing don't go together. If you look at the last few books, they feature blurbs from Yours Truly, Wert, Erikson, and Esslemont. A GRRM quote could have done wonders, even if Bakker can never hope to appeal to the more mainstream SFF fans.

    Bakker LVI: the Rectum of Creation

    Don't understand why Overlook Press and Orbit didn't try to get a blurb from GRRM to help promote the series. . .

    Bakker LVI: the Rectum of Creation

    I know they met at a convention in Spain, but I'm not sure GRRM ever read some of Bakker's books.
