Can this really be true!?! I've been waiting for this day for so long, it seems. . .
But with the release of Confessor (Canada, USA, Europe) later this week, Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series will finally come to an end! Good God, but it was a long time in coming!
Wait! Stop the music! What is that I'm just reading? Just as I'm about to do a little dance, make a little love, and get down tonight, rumors that the author is entertaining the idea of producing sequels reach me! Isn't it enough that Goodkind has been milking his popularity for nearly a decade, writing book after book that did little to move the main story arc forward? Now he feels the urge to take advantage of his fans yet again. . . How many Ayn Rand manifestos can one person write in his lifetime, anyway? This is a sad state of affairs, to be sure.
A big Chuck Norris aficionado, this photograph shows Mr. Goodkind on his way to a Walker, Texas Ranger convention. But what's with the suit? Was this a Queer Eye for the Straight Guy Extreme Makeover? Is that a fashion statement or a cry for help?
On behalf of all the Lemmings of Discord around the world, may you enjoy Confessor, which will hopefully bring this saga to a satisfying close. Who knows, given the immense popularity of authors such as Robert Jordan and George R. R. Martin, if he elects to write those sequels Terry Goodkind might decide to try his hand at epic fantasy for a change. . .
Wouldn't that be something!?!;-)
Hmmm, it occurs to me that I've always claimed that I wouldn't finish this series until the last volume was out. . . Which means, I reckon, that I will now have to finish the damned thing at some point. . . Holy crap, the very thought of picking up Naked Empire once more makes my skin crawl.
