Lev, Given your well read background, one could assume that your next foray into fiction would having nothing to do with magical schools and it's alumni. Any idea where your heading next (as you must continue to write fiction)?
I've got about 1/3 of a draft of a new book that's totally unrelated to the Magicians books. It's not fantasy ... I'm not sure what it is. But I can't talk about it yet.
