Fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss to visit ABC Amsterdam

He’s one of our favorite authors, and was a huge hit with you last time he visited ABC. We’ve had lots of tip-offs from you that the great man would be in Europe again in November, and of course, lots of requests to please, please, PLEASE get him to come to ABC. (Seriously, some of this guy’s biggest fans clearly live right here in The Netherlands.)

So…

Our people talked to his people, and… they have confirmed that Patrick Rothfuss will visit us in November!

Updated on 29/9/2011: Sadly, due to personal circumstances, Patrick Rothfuss’s visit will not be happening in November.  We really hope he will come to visit us at some stage in the future, though, and we sincerely hope everything will be alright for him and his very soon.

Rothfuss is the author of epic fantasy series The Kingkiller Chronicle, which so far includes The Name of The Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear.

The details of his visit are still being ironed out, but we’ll be sure to let you know when we know more.

For now, whet your appetite with an interview Tiemen did with him earlier this year in which he told us what his kit would include  in the event of a worldwide zombie apocalypse. 😉
