Brandon Sanderson

When: Tue., Sept. 7, 7:30 p.m. 2010

Brandon Sanderson has a thankless task that has subjected him to scrutiny by many a friend of mine: Not yet 35, the writer was chosen by the widow of late fantasy author Robert Jordan to complete Jordan's "Wheel of Time" series. Now, if you don't know fans of the books, they are an obsessive bunch—and given the top-selling nature of the series, they are legion. Sanderson received basically positive remarks for the first of the three concluding books last fall, but with two to go, fans' skeptical eyes are still on him. Sanderson also has his own series, "The Stormlight Archive," which opens with The Way of Kings, the tale of a storm-ravaged world and mystic armor that turns ordinary men into invincible warriors, sort of like Iron Man but with magic. Enjoy Sanderson's new book or pester him with your "Wheel of Time" questions tonight at 7:30.—Zack Smith
