Recently Christopher Paolini took to Facebook to answer some fan questions including information on his next project and a possible new Eragon book.

When answering a fan question about his next project, Christopher Paolini said, “Over the past ten years, I’ve thought of a whole bunch of stories that I would like to write, stories in all different genres. Last I’ve looked, I have between twenty to thirty completely new books all plotted out. I’m pretty sure that I’m going to tackle science fiction next, but who knows? In the long term, though, I definitely intend to return to Eragon’s world and write a fifth book. After spending so long with the world and the characters of the Inheritance Cycle, I can’t bring myself to walk away from them for the rest of my life.”

Would you be interested in reading another book set in the world of Eragon? If so, what would you like the book to be about?

Eragon was first published in 2002 by Paolini’s parents and by 2003 was purchased and republished by Alfred Knopf publishing, which went on to publish the entire Inheritance Cycle. Originally set to be a trilogy, the series was expanded to four books. The final book was published in 2011.

What do you hope Paolini writes about next? What do you think his sci-fi book will be about?
