Near new condition, by Peter Rothfuss

The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle: Day One) is a fantasy novel by Patrick Rothfuss, the first book in a series called The Kingkiller Chronicle. It was published in 2007 by DAW Books with two possible hardcovers: one features the face of the Green Man with the title letters in silver and the other shows the figure of Kvothe with the letters printed in gold. A new cover was released in subsequent reprints, depicting a cloaked figure under a dark sky in a windy field.

Rothfuss wrote The Name of the Wind during his nine-year advance toward his B.S. in English. He drew inspiration from the range of college courses he explored, and from his personal interests and hobbies. A short story excerpted from the novel The Wise Man's Fear(sequel to The Name of the Wind),[1] "The Road to Levinshir", won the Writers of the Futurecontest in 2002, leading to the book's publication. The Wise Man's Fear itself was released on March 1, 2011 by DAW Books.

Orion have also released UK version of the audio books of The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear narrated by Rupert Degas. Brilliance audio has released US version of the audio books of The Name of the Wind andThe Wise Man's Fear narrated by Nick Podehl. Another version was released on tape narrated by Fred Major for the American Printing House for the Blind.[2] Please click here to ask a question
