Update – Confessor by Terry Goodkind (…I feel so dirty)
Posted by senseichow on April 14, 2007
Remember the opening scene of the 1997 movie Batman and Robin, when director Joel Schumacher took out his wang and personally urinated on every single member of the audience, thus preparing them for what was to follow?
Well, I just had a flashback to that scene. Yeah. You see, I checked out the TG website this morning. (shudder).
He’s hard at work on the next, and final, strictly no fantasy here, oh no, novel in the Sword of Truth series. Its called Confessor and is due for a November 2007 release date.
Here’s the preview blurb.
“Descending into darkness, about to be overwhelmed by evil, those people still free are powerless to stop the coming dawn of a savage new world, while Richard faces the guilt of knowing that he must let it happen. Alone, he must bear the weight of a sin he dare not confess to the one person he loves…and has lost. Join Richard and Kahlan in the concluding novel of one of the most remarkable and memorable journeys ever written. It started with one rule, and will end with the rule of all rules, the rule unwritten, the rule unspoken since the dawn of history.
When next the sun rises, the world will be forever changed.”
Unnamed sources say that theme and plot are expected to make an appearance in the book, with characterization possibly to follow.
At least we can console ourselves with the news that its the last in the Sword of Truth series.

(And I mean that literally. There’s like, tiny demons… right here… waiting to damn me.)
UPDATE: It doesn’t feel right to end a post without links. So here’s some from Inchoatus, old, but still well worth reading, especially the first one;
