Cronologia
O Temor do Sábio

O Nome do Vento (em inglês: The Name of the Wind) é


um livro de fantasia escrito pelo norte-americano Patrick
Rothfuss, o primeiro da série intitulada A Crônica do
Matador do Rei. Publicado no Brasil em 2009, pela
Editora Arqueiro.[1]

Como o livro também lida com o tema da magia (Kvothe,


o personagem principal, frequenta a Universidade a fim de
se tornar um Arcanista), o escritor norte-americano Orson
Scott Card comparou o romance à série Harry Potter;
porém, mais obscura e madura. O segundo livro da série
tem como título O Temor do Sábio, no Brasil, e O Medo
do Homem Sábio , em Portugal, e foi lançado em março
de 2011[2] nos Estados Unidos. O título do terceiro
volume deverá ser The Doors of Stone (As Portas de
Pedra, em tradução livre). Além destes, o autor publicou
um spin off chamado The Slow Regard Of Silent Things (
A Música do Silêncio, no Brasil[3] ), em 2014, tendo
como protagonista a personagem Auri.

Sinopse
Em seu primeiro romance - ambientado em um mundo
medieval alternativo - Rothfuss conta história de Kvothe,
dono da hospedaria Marco do Percurso - que leva uma
vida pacata, em um vilarejo sem grandes agitações. Até o
dia em que salva a vida de um cronista durante o ataque
noturno de “criaturas sombrias” e o abriga em sua
hospedaria. Conhecendo uma misteriosa história sobre
Kvothe, o cronista se oferece para escrever uma biografia
do estaleiro, que exige então três dias para contá-la e
afirma que dirá “nada além da verdade”.

“O Nome Do Vento” corresponde ao primeiro dia desta


narrativa, iniciando o leitor na trajetória do jovem Kvothe,
um rapaz pertencente a trupe de artistas itinerantes Edema
Ruh, que se envolve com um misterioso grupo chamado
Chandriano, e passa a perseguir o mesmo tentando
compreender a causa e os segredos envolvidos no
assassinato.

Além disso, Kvothe narra o início de sua trajetória na


Universidade, onde segue o seu sonho de se tornar um
grande arcanista e grande nomeador, enquanto busca
informações sobre o perigoso Chandriano, vivendo
inúmeras aventuras paralelas.[4]

A Magia de Rothfuss
No universo criado por Patrick Rothfuss, a magia é um
aspecto recorrente e se apresenta de variadas formas,
como seres fantásticos, e por determinadas “ciências” que
apenas fazem sentido neste mundo, como a prática da
“simpatia”, “siglística”, “nomeação” e outras mais
próximas da nossa realidade como a “ficiaria” (os ártifices
e inventores) e a “iátrica” (medicina).

A magia neste livro é muito semelhante a ciência da


realidade, por ser regida por regras, técnicas muito
específicas e limites estabelecidos pelo estudo e
experiências. Este é considerado um dos “pontos altos” de
Rothfuss: a criação de uma magia explicada, portanto
“possível”, mas com elementos do fantástico.

This week’s word for Wednesday is spelaean, an adjective, meaning like a cave. That’s no real
surprise since I’m sure it’s from the same root as the verb spelunk.

The Belles: Exciting despite characterization problems


The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

The history books say that the God of the Sky married the Goddess of Beauty and their
children populated Orléans. But when Beauty started spending all her time with their children
instead of her husband, Sky cursed the people of Orléans, giving them “skin the color of a
sunless sky, eyes the shade of blood, hair the texture of rotten straw, and a deep sadness that
quickly turned to madness.” So, Beauty created the Belles, special girls who have magic that
can bring beauty and joy back to the people of Orléans.

Camellia and her five sisters are Belles. They’ve been training and practicing all their lives and
now, on their sixteenth birthday, they are on their way to Orléans to be honored and assigned
their Belle duties. Camellia knows that she is the most creative and gifted of her sisters and she
expects to be named as the queen’s Favorite, which means that she’ll get to live in the pa...

Tyrant’s Throne: A near-perfect close to a great series

Reposting to include Marion's new review.

Tyrant’s Throne by Sebastien de Castell

De Castell turned to Kest. “How would you rate our chances?”

Kest rifled through the manuscript. “We’ll get four and five-star reviews and show up on a
dozen Best of the Year lists, after which you’ll get one, no two, major nominations. People will
be very sad it’s over and will repeatedly beg you for more. Falcio will appear on five or six ‘Best
Characters in a Series’ lists, which won’t do much for his humility, I hate to say.”

“I’ll have you know I have the best humility of anyone.”

“My point exactly. I’ll get a Top 10 mention on a list of Best Swordsperson in a fantasy work,
but poor Brasti will almost certainly be forgotten, unless someone makes a list of ‘Characters
Who You Only Remember as ‘That Other Guy.’”

Brasti glanced up from polis... Read More

Welcome to Night Vale Episodes, Volume 3 & Volume 4

The Buying of Lot 37: Welcome to Night Vale Episodes, Volume 3

Who’s a Good Boy?: Welcome to Night Vale Episodes, Volume 4

by Joseph Fink & Jeffrey Cranor


So many spiders. So, so many spiders.

Night Vale, as a town, is not for the faint of heart, especially if one has a problem with
arachnids. (“Throat spiders” is a common ailment, the very idea of which makes me want to
vomit until I die.) It’s also infested with deer, many of whom have extra eyes and heads, and
thanks to the largesse of Night Vale Community College alumna Mrs. Sylvia Wickersham,
thousands of English Angora rabbits. Because a Whispering Forest that ensnares victims with
compliments, a tiny civilization underneath the bowling alley and arcade complex, and hordes
of bloodied warriors wandering through the desert wastes are super-fun and scary, but not
quite scary enough to make me check and double-... Read More

Soulbinder: This time, Kellen must go it alone

Soulbinder by Sebastien de Castell

In the first three books of Sebastien deCastell’s SPELLSLINGER series, Kellen, son of a powerful
Jan’Tep sorcerous family and follower of the Argosi way, has been able to count on a loyal and
powerful support network. Reichis, a squirrel-cat, is thieving and verbally abusive, but fierce
and faithful. Ferrius, an Argosy traveler, has taught Kellen much about the power of magic and
of life. In Soulbinder (2018), the fourth book of six planned, Kellen finds himself alone, forced
to rely only on his own resources.

(This review may have mild spoilers for the previous books.)

Kellen carries a demonic infection called shadowblack. At the end of Charmcaster Read More

Inspection: Here’s how to ruin your experience with this book

Inspection by Josh Malerman

Here’s how to ruin your experience with this book: Read the publisher’s blurb below, think it
sounds sweet and thoughtful, and then order an audio copy that doesn’t have a book jacket
containing quotes from Chuck Wendig and J.D. Barker. The publisher’s blurb goes like this:

J is a student at a school deep in a forest far away from the rest of the world. J is one of only
twenty-six students, all of whom think of the school’s enigmatic founder as their father. J’s
peers are the only family he has ever had. The students are being trained to be prodigies of
art, science, and athletics, and their life at the school is all they know — and all they are
allowed to know. But J suspects that there is something out there, beyond the pines, that the
founder does not want him to see, and he’s ... Read More

The Oracle Year: An exciting, fast-paced science fiction thriller

Reposting to include Jana's new review.

The Oracle Year by Charles Soule

OCTOBER 8: FOURTEEN BABIES WILL BE BORN AT NORTHSIDE GENERAL HOSPITAL IN


HOUSTON. SIX MALE, EIGHT FEMALE.

One morning at about 5:00 am, Will Dando, a struggling young New York musician, abruptly
awakes from a vivid dream. In his dream, a voice told Will 108 oddly specific and rather
random predictions about the future, which he remembers verbatim when he wakes up. Some
are potentially life-changing: warnings of the collapse of a major bridge and other disasters.
Others may have a huge financial effect: a football game that will be won by the Jets by four
points; a caution about a late freeze of crops in the southeastern United States. Still others are
apparently mundane:
APRIL 24 – MRS. LUISA ALVAREZ OF EL PASO, TEXAS, PURCHASES A QUART OF CHOCOLATE

Sunday Status Update: May 12, 2019

Happy Mother's Day!

Bill: No genre books this week. Instead, I read The Secret Lives of Color by Kassia St. Clair — a
quick tour of the histories of individual colors that I wish had slowed down a bit more. I also
read Atlas of a Lost World by Craig Childs, which explores how the first people may have
arrived in the New World during the Paleolithic. It’s also an engaging travelogue as Childs
himself hikes across a portion of the Harding Icefield, canoes up the Yukon, or flees a pair of
wolves in Siberia near the Bering Land Bridge. And I continue to listen to The Story of Earth:
The First 4.5 Billion Years by Robert M. Hazen.

Jana: This week was another good, productive week. (I could get used to this! I won't, but I

Buzzkill: A superhero joins AA

Buzzkill by Donny Cates (writer), Mark Reznicek (writer), and Geoff Shaw (artist)

Buzzkill, collecting all four issues of the mini-series, is a funny superhero parody by Donny
Cates and Mark Reznicek, with art by Geoff Shaw. I sought it out because Donny Cates is one of
my favorite new writers, with great titles like Redneck from Image and the insane Marvel title
Thanos Wins, which features a cosmic Ghost Rider who is a resurrected Frank Castle, The
Punisher. Buzzkill is about a superhero trying to get sober. He eventually ends up with a
sponsor who is a Doctor Strange parody. Together, they get this retired superhero the help he
needs.

Buzzkill opens with our hero, Ruben, in a self-help group trying to get assistance as he decides
to quit all drinking and drugs. Unfortunately, we find out, that is whe... Read More

Buzzkill by Donny Cates (writer), Mark Reznicek (writer), and Geoff Shaw (artist)

Buzzkill, collecting all four issues of the mini-series, is a funny superhero parody by Donny
Cates and Mark Reznicek, with art by Geoff Shaw. I sought it out because Donny Cates is one of
my favorite new writers, with great titles like Redneck from Image and the insane Marvel title
Thanos Wins, which features a cosmic Ghost Rider who is a resurrected Frank Castle, The
Punisher. Buzzkill is about a superhero trying to get sober. He eventually ends up with a
sponsor who is a Doctor Strange parody. Together, they get this retired superhero the help he
needs.

Buzzkill opens with our hero, Ruben, in a self-help group trying to get assistance as he decides
to quit all drinking and drugs. Unfortunately, we find out, that is where he gets his powers
from: Any form of drug (including the nicotine in cigarettes). So, while he’s succeeding in
kicking his bad habits, he is simultaneously leaving himself vulnerable to super-powered
enemies who do not lose their power when sober.
The suspense is funny in this book because in addition to the typical will-he-win battles with
his enemies, we have the questions one would expect from a more serious book: Will he get
sober, will he stay sober, and will he find a sponsor? All pressing questions for Ruben. But
when one of the self-help group members turns out to be a plant to get to Ruben, his current
situation becomes even more desperate. The tension escalates as Ruben finds out he has been
betrayed by those closest to him, and his desire to smoke, drink, and get high increases as it
does for any addict going through personal problems.

There are strange, dark parts of the comic; for example, when, as a fraternity pledge (after five
years of sobriety), he is forced into the back of a moving van and told to drink an entire keg
with his fellow pledges, the results, hinted at in the comic, are disturbingly violent. But this
darker side to the comic is what gives the story some depth, as the authors, Cates and
Reznicek, consider what the “real-life” impact would be on superheroes if they were real:
Ruben has many regrets about losing control and hurting others either physically or, in the
case of those who are close to him, emotionally. Would a superhero really have the
opportunity for normal relationships? Is a “friend” on a superhero team really to be trusted as
a real friend? Can one retire from the life of being a superhero when there are so many
enemies out there looking for vulnerability in their nemesis?

Buzzkill is a fun parody comic with a serious side in commenting on sobriety. I particularly
enjoy the narrative device of having Ruben telling his story in a self-help group setting. That’s a
genre most of us are somewhat familiar with (if only from seeing such scenes portrayed in
movies and television), so the authors really play with the conventions, often by having Ruben
narrate his story as if it’s a typical alcoholic tale, while the images show that the tale is not
typical. The text is about his alcoholism, but the images are about his being an out-of-control
superhero.

While I think this is an enjoyable, well-written comic, it is not Donny Cates at his best (again,
see Redneck or Thanos Wins). However, if the premise sounds interesting to you, I am positive
you will enjoy this book. And if the premise does not grab you, at least remember the name
Donny Cates. You will be hearing more of him in the future, since he is clearly a rising star.

I like this idea! The allure of alcohol or other drugs often seems to be that you at least FEEL like
a superhero, at least for a little while. (I’ve never understood what there was about tobacco
that made people feel good.) It does sound quirky but like something I’d like.

Brad Hawley / May 13, 2019


It’s a good book. I read it twice in one week, and I liked it even better the second time, which
suggests I might have given the book a little lower rating than it deserves. It could be a 4 star
comic. But it’s not a five-star comic like the author’s other books: God Country, Redneck, and
Thanos Wins. I’ve just written a review of God Country, and I’ll be posting it this Saturday. It’s
without doubt a five-star graphic novel. You’ll have to check that one out for sure, Marion!
