If your reaction to the title is “Wut?”, today is the birthday of one of my favorite authors, Brandon Sanderson!
As befits the awesome guy that he is, Brandon ended up giving us fans a gift on his birthday, rather than the other way around. By announcing TWO new Mistborn novels. I’m so excited! Of course, Shadows of Self was already scheduled for a fall 2015 release, but now there’s going to be another Wax & Wayne book, Bands of Mourning, a couple months after that.
So if you haven’t already, you should totally go read the original Mistborn trilogy. Because it is awesome. Or maybe some of his other books – Elantris, The Way of Kings, Words of Radiance, Warbreaker, Steelheart… Really, all his books are superb. Go check them out.
The man is really prolific. As stated in his recent blog post, he had trouble getting started with a novel, so he wrote another novel as warm up. Let that sink in for a while. No surprise then, that he’s often faced allegations of being a robot from his fans. Put on your tinfoil hat, and check out this video proof.
Jokes aside, he’s a great writer, and really good to his fans. So once again,
