Poll Friday: Would You Read A New Brooks Book Unrelated To His Previous Work?

Terry Brooks

Terry Brooks

Terry tends to write more words than a book a year.

That means, eventually, he begins lapping himself, able to publish two books in a year. He did that several years ago with the Dark Legacy of Shannara novels, each one publishing every six months.

He has done it again. But this time, he’s written a book that is unrelated to anything he’s written before, a book that is more science fiction than fantasy but featuring memorable characters, a great setting, and new and unusual gadgets and technology. He read the first chapter of the book two years ago at a Powells Books signing event and I received about a dozen emails from those attending wanting to know how they could get the rest. I have read the book and I love it, a cross between “Blade Runner” and Genesis of Shannara.

Some of you have been asking him to write something completely new. Some of you probably hate the idea, preferring to read only Shannara and/or Landover.

So my poll question for you today is:

Would you read this new book even though it is unrelated to his previous work?

We are looking for comments as well! Hope to hear from some of you!
