Patrick Rothfuss’ new story The Slow Regard of Silent Things

Today we’re absolutely over the moon to share our cover for Patrick Rothfuss’ amazing new story The Slow Regard of Silent Things. In Pat’s own words:

It’s not book three. It’s not a mammoth tome that you can use to threaten people and hold open doors.

It’s a short, sweet story about one of my favorite characters.

It’s a book about Auri.

That’s the news. The short version. If you’d like the long version, I’ll give that below ….

And we can vouch that it is a beautiful, sweet story of about 30,000 words. And it’s all about Auri – one of the most endearing characters in the KingKiller Chronicles series.

But again, to use a few of Pat’s words: we think  a lot of you are going to like it. So here’s the cover!

Jen works in the Gollancz/Indigo marketing team. Originally from New York, she talks too loud (and far too fast). When not marketing books or devising evil genius plans (as she prefers to think of marketing) she reads too much, adventures as much as possible and is learning the difference between US and UK English (it’s a complex process). She has a weakness for brilliant YA novels, fairy tales, myths, chocolate tea and trashy American TV. She also has a pathological hatred of mayo. You can follow her on Twitter: @gennmcmenemy
