Rant's New Book in 2009, please help
I am so confused.
Alright, if this has been brought up recently or even before, then forgive and please direct me to the link, but if not, here goes:
I remember reading last summer that Chuck plans to make Rant into a trilogy and that he would publish the second book in 2009 and the last one in 2011, i.e. the two-year wait between each book like he originally said he wanted.
I know this is not any new news for many of you who are fellow die hard Chuck fans, but what is confusing to me is that his new book, which comes out in 2009, is called "Pygmy" and it doesn't sound anything like the second book in the Rant trilogy.
I sense this because I remember Chuck saying that the second book in the trilogy i.e. the Rant sequal would deal with the "historians" and would reveal more of the mysteries surrounding them. Pygmy doesn't sound anything like that.
Now perhaps Chuck changed his mind and dropped the trilogy or is waiting another year or two for the next book, but the way I see it is that he said last year he was working on the second Rant book and yet he has already finished Pygmy. Chuck is talented as hell, but I doubt he would write two books from start to finish in less than one year AND not mention both of them, as he has only talked about Pygmy so far.
To make a long post short:
I love Rant and while Pygmy sounds like another Chuck winner, I really want to read more about the mysterious and profoundly confusing plotlines and secrets of the Rant trilogy, which I can't do if he has scrapped the book about the historians or is delaying it another year or two.
Can anyone help me make sense of this, anyone who remembers what he said last year or has any insight into the newest development of the Rant trilogy?
I'm sure the answer(s) are obvious and are old news that I prolly missed hearing months back, but I thought I'd ask anyway.
PS: I feel like such a whore making my first impression on this kickass forum with a post that begs other, more knowledgable people for answers...but alas, I am a man who knows my limitations...and I loved Rant, easily his best among many great works in my opinion, so yeah, I'll whore myself for any new Rant trilogy news.
