The most fascinating part of this story is that it's still unfolding; the book ends in the early 90s, but there is turmoil and conflict even today.

Patrick Rothfuss
“It wasn't even a good note. 'If you are reading this I am probably dead.' What sort of a note is that?”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

Terry Pratchett
“There's no such thing as writer's block. That was invented by people in California who couldn't write.”
Terry Pratchett

David Eddings
“What was that?" Belgarath asked, coming back around the corner.
"Brill," Silk replied blandly, pulling his Murgo robe back on.
"Again?" Belgarath demanded with exasperation. "What was he doing this time?"
"Trying to fly, last time I saw him." Silk smirked.
The old man looked puzzled.
"He wasn't doing it very well," Silk added.
Belgarath shrugged. "Maybe it'll come to him in time."
"He doesn't really have all that much time." Silk glanced out over the edge.
"From far below - terribly far below - there came a faint, muffled crash; then, after several seconds, another. "Does bouncing count?" Silk asked.
Belgarath made a wry face. "Not really."
"Then I'd say he didn't learn in time." Silk said blithely.”
David Eddings, Magician's Gambit

Terry Pratchett
“We're on a mission from Glod.”
Terry Pratchett, Soul Music

Terry Pratchett
“I'm not the world's greatest expert, but I would have thought that the wizards, witches, trolls, unicorns, ... broomsticks and spells would have given her a clue?' - when J.K. Rowling insisted she wasn't writing fantasy.”
Terry Pratchett
