I'm lucky I have r/fantasy in my daily round-up and periodically check the AMA schedule. Bakker is a most sneaky hobbit ;).

In the last AMA the wonderful r/fantasy mod, lyrrael, who was liaison for Bakker suggested that the next one could be a "full-warning spoiler AMA."

I will update this post as I have news as to whether that is the case.

EDIT: And, of course, that's the day I will be sitting in the hospital for the majority of the morning/afternoon waiting on my final xrays and then waiting for my physio appointment for most of the afternoon... :'(

EDIT2: AMA will be:

Nice. I'm never around for these AMA's but they are good to read afterwards. Problem with reddit is that threads sink so fast in those busy subreddits.

I'm hoping Scott will drop the title for TSTSNBN.

Best of luck with the medical commitments.

Did you read Bakker's first one, Crtha? It managed to stay on the front page for the entire day.

Best of luck with the medical commitments.

Much appreciated. Broke my foot in two places. Entirely my fault ;).

It's almost over. Really excited to take off the cast on next Wednesday and work on switching out these crutches for my Great-Grandpa's cane. Then the aforementioned xrays, final diagnosis, and physio appointments on the following AMA Wednesday.

I did indeed, thanks.

Oh, good thing then if it is healed. Hopefully it's not been to much of a discomfoot. ;)

Lmao. Nice one. Where's Redeagl, he appreciates a good pun ;).

Yeah, everything is looking good. Surgeon said I'm healing fine, despite my efforts to handicap that.

Well, get fucking hyped, people!

I talked to the mod liaison, /u/lyrrael, and /u/DracostarA, who is primarily responsible for facilitating Bakker's two AMAs so far, and the AMA will be:

In the TGO feedback thread that Bakker was responding to last September, he mentioned that he intended to share the third series' name once TUC was out. Fingers crossed.

I'm sure it's going to be a wild AMA. Best bet is to try and get your questions in earlier in the morning on Aug 2nd (EST) - though Bakker was remarkably diligent about trying to answer every question asked last time.

Is it weird I don't have anything to ask him?

I think once the series is finished i'll have loads.

I think this is an opportunity to get questions answered that Bakker expected people to be clear on at this point. There's got to be stuff that we are still fumbling around with that he's kicking himself for.

I often think there's nothing worth asking, but when I think on it I can usually come up with a few.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

My thoughts exactly. In fact, a good question might be, "What are people confused about that you thought would be very clear by the end of TUC?"

Yup, that's a great place to start :) . Though, I feel that more direct questions are more likely to get answered, but that will definitely cover anything big.

We basically have to set up questions so that Bakker has an outlet for the information he wants to disseminate. The last thing we want is a bunch of new kids asking questions like "I only just started TDTCB, can you talk about what sranc look like?".

It's AMA day ;D!

I'll update this thread with the thread link, time permitting, as it's also hospital day :-\!
