He said he was going to write a sci-fi novel and make another inheritance cycle book. Is there any word on the progress?

Also, what happened to discussions about Eragon on this board? A few years back, it was plastered all over this board, with dozens of topics about it and there was even a petition to start a board for it. The final book being released barely warranted a few topics and it was quickly forgotten. I'm afraid it's a sign that this board is dying. :(

Or that the kids that read those books grew up and saw them for what they really were.

Even though I never read beyond Eragon and have no plans to (quit early in the second book, because even when I was a kid, I could tell this was really bad), I'm actually curious to see what he creates, now that he finally has an opportunity to escape the derivative bland world of the Inheritance Cycle.

I hang on to faint hope that it might be even average, that he might show himself to be a competent writer. I doubt that will be the case (they'll publish it no matter the quality), but I'd love to be proven wrong.

Ah yes, that old argument....

Anyway, didn't he only get his stuff published because his parents were bigwigs in the publishing industry?
