    The Twelve by Justin Cronin -- what are your questions?

    Hey gang!

    I'm going to send Justin some of the most frequently asked questions about The Twelve, the sequel to The Passage. I have a folder of emails I've gotten from customers over the last year, but I was wondering if you guys and gals had any you wanted to throw into the mix? Thanks!

    Delivery date is "sometime in 2012" -- we don't have any information beyond that right now. We will be doing a Limited Edition and customers who ordered The Passage (and whose contact information is still up-to-date) will receive advance notification so they can get matching numbers.

    Here is something he said in an interview:

    The next two books each go back to Year Zero at the outset, to reset the story, and todeal with something you didn’t see and didn’t know was as important as it was. It’s not a linear quest story, which I would find dull and plodding. With each book, you need to have the narrative terms reestablished with fresh elements. Also, if you didn’t see [a character] die, they’re not necessarily dead. There’s a big cast in the first book, and plenty of unresolved stuff. I will resolve it by the end. [Early vampire character] Anthony Carter? No, not abandoning him.

    In second book, you go back to what happened in Denver after the outbreak took place. The story will [COLOR=#009900 !important]resume[/COLOR] in that location a few days after breakout. So you can see another angle on what occurred and certain elements will affect our band of heroes 100 years in the future. It will be called The Twelve – and it’s not who you think.

    Awesome! What if we got out copy off of something like eBay? I'm finishing up reading The Passage now (taken me forever, but only because I have so many things going on)

    That is what I was planning to do, but the book just kept tempting me, lol. That is what I am doing with the Stain Trilogy though

    Same here. I'm doing this with any trilogy - quadrilogy- etc. If I won't, I'll have to re-read everything-that-came-before.

    I have the CD edition of The Passage but have not read it yet. I will probably get to it over the winter.

    Great! I'm looking forward to it, and will definitely be taking you up on the matching numbers offer

    Lucky you!
    Upon release I read the first book. When the sequel was released, I read that one, plus the first again.
    Then I found out this would turn into a huge series, so I quit reading, just bought the books and put them unread on my shelves.
    Till about two years ago. I read the first four, five books...and gave up on this series.

    Now all they do is take up quite a bit of space...

    I read the first 7 and then stopped. I loved the books, but figured I would wait until it's done. I met Jordan 3 times too. He was a very sweet man.

    Well it's probably one of my favorite series of books, I've read it the whole way through probably about 6 times. I came to the game a bit late though, as I didn't start reading it till 9 of the books where already out. Since then I've read the series about once a year (when a new book would come out). But after the second time through it doesn't take nearly as long to read all of them, as you learn which parts to skim and what not.

    That's awesome Brad. It's such a shame he didn't make it long enough to complete the series himself, although I have to say Sanderson has done a good job of it. I would have loved for CD to have been able to do limited of the series, but it's kinda hard to have a dead man sign sig sheets, that and I think I'm the only one here who's a fantasy nut. Oh well, only one book to go!

    I could always take them off your hands...

    Like Dan, I came in around book 9 and just breezed throught them all in a 2 month period the first time reading. Then reread for book 10 and 11, since then I've been waiting for the final one to start all over again. Although I have been getting the comics and reading them.

    I was lucky in that I was working ina book store when Eye of the World came out. As far as I know, only the trade pb was released in the stores. I found, on the microfiche (sp?), that there was a hardback and I ordered the hardback (first/first) of Eye and Great Hunt at the same time. So, I was lucky enough to get first/first of the entire series and have the first 7 volumes signed.
