"The Slow Regard of Silent Things" Released Today

Fantasy fans are in for another treat today, as a new Kingkiller Chronicle story by Patrick Rothfuss (this is not Book Three!) is released in hardback (and ebook). 

Since i have the first two books in (trade) paperback, I will also get this one in that format, so I have about 6-12 months before this is released in likewise. I'm hoping by then, there will be an update about Book Three. In the meantime....

Deep below the University, there is a dark place. Few people know of it: a broken web of ancient passageways and abandoned rooms. A young woman lives there, tucked among the sprawling tunnels of the Underthing, snug in the heart of this forgotten place. Her name is Auri, and she is full of mysteries."The Slow Regard of Silent Things" is a brief, bittersweet glimpse of Auri's life, a small adventure all her own. At once joyous and haunting, this story offers a chance to see the world through Auri's eyes. And it gives the reader a chance to learn things that only Auri knows.... In this book, Patrick Rothfuss brings us into the world of one of "The Kingkiller Chronicle"'s most enigmatic characters. Full of secrets and mysteries, "The Slow Regard of Silent Things" is the story of a broken girl trying to live in a broken world.
