F.A.Q

I get quite a few emails asking me various questions about either myself, my page, or Terry Goodkind himself. I wanted to create a quick reference page for anyone to look at just to see if their question can be answered here. If not, feel free to email me at darkerrealm@hotmail.com

Q:Are you Terry Goodkind?
A:Believe it or not, people do ask me this question. More than you may think, but not as many that once did. The answer is NO, I am most definately not Terry Goodkind. I'm just a fan like you who happened to make a fan page for his great Sword of Truth series.

Q:Do you know the Title/Date/etc, etc... of the next book.
A:Sadly, I usually find out the answer to the above question around the same time as most other people. I just happen to know sooner than some because I spend so must time online. If you really want to be kept up to date, surf on over to www.terrygoodkind.com and join the mailing list.

Q:Do you know Terry personally?
A:While I have met him a few times, it was in a line of hundreds of other hopefuls that were standing along with me to get their Sword of Truth books signed. So no, I don't really know him, but I have met him and talked with him on occasion.

Q:Do you ever run contests on your site?
A:I've thought of doing this many different times, but one problem always seems to rise to the surface: I really don't have anything worthwhile to give away. I do have a few items that are signed by Terry, but those are things that I've gotten signed in person, and would rather not part with.

Q:How did you discover Terry's books?
A:I actually get this question more than any other. I was once a member of the SFBC (science fiction book club) and as a perk of joining the club, you get 7 or 8 books for about 1$ or something like that. I had picked out my books, and had one more to go, and noticed a book titled "Wizards First Rule". I read the byline on it, and decided to give it a try, it was basically free after all. 6 weeks later, they all came in a big box, which I gladly cut open, and wouldn't you just guess, WFR was stareing right up at me. I read the book over the course of two days, and I've been a fan since then. ^-^

Q:What other books would you recommend to someone who likes Terry Goodkind?
A:My first response to this question is always Robert Jordan. His books are massive in scope, and deep in history and people. Not everyone will agree with me, but there it is anyhow. Others that I've really enjoyed are: John Marco, Anne McCaffery, Terry Brooks, David Eddings, C.S Friedman, J.V Jones, George RR Martin, Orson Scott Card, L.E. Modesitt Jr., Tad Williams...and there really is many more, I just can't think of any at the moment.
