It’s a Whore’s Market

Christopher Paolini’s best selling young reader “Inheritance” series will be four books instead of the originally planned trilogy.

Paolini explained that, “When I finally delved into Book Three, it soon became obvious that the
remainder of the story was far too big to fit in one volume. … In
order to be true to my characters and to address all of the plot points
and unanswered questions Eragon and Eldest raised, I needed to split
the end of the series into two books.”

Right. That or publisher Mr. Knopf very plainly and politely explained how much more money would be made with four books instead of three given the movie rights, trinket tie-ins, and vacuum left now that Harry Potter is done. I anxiously await the fifth.

And the Frank Warren PostSecret phenomenon continues as well. When the first one burst on the scene it was haunting and poignant and we couldn’t tear our eyes away from it, like a car crash. The second one was lame. The third one was okay. Now there’s a fourth.

Put a fork in it. Quick. Before there’s a movie adaptation.
