Interview with Brandon Sanderson about his latest novel: Warbreaker. If you’re a fantasy fan and you haven’t read any of his books, what the heck are you waiting for?
In the interview, he calls his forthcoming book The Way of Kings “the project of his heart”, and judging by the way he lights up as he speaks about it, this one is going to be something spectacular! I’m getting chills just thinking about it!
According to several sources, Scott Lynch’s third book, A Republic of Thieves, is going to be released in Spring 2010.
I’m currently reading Brandon Sanderson’s newest, Warbreaker, and good golly molly, if the ending is anything like the middle, this is a book that will vault onto my shelf of favorite books. It actually reminds me a bit of Lynch’s writing, which is why I’m talking about it now. The snarky sense of humor is nearly the same, and some of the characters could well exist within Lynch’s world. This “wheel of time’ thing? Sanderson really really needs to finish that, so he can stop wasting his creative juices on it. And I say that as a fan of Robert Jordan’s writing. I think Jordan was terrific, but Sanderson could really be a writer for the ages.
