I’ve been lurking for far too long now, so I thought I’d introduce myself and share my questions and answers from Brandon’s December 21 book signing in Orem, Utah.
Hi everyone, my name is Joe Graff, and I have a Brandon Sanderson problem. I’ve read all his books already and want more. Now. :-)
Before I get to the questions, I just want to say what a genuinely nice guy Brandon seems. My wife, who hasn’t read and only knows about him through me said, “Wow! He’s just so nice!” On to the three questions...
Q: Could Sazed take up one or more additional shards?
A: Under the right circumstances, yes! (He also corrected my pronunciation—it’s Say-zed. But did say some in-world characters use one syllable. As in rhymes with ‘dazed’.)
Q: OK, since that’s the case, if someone took up all 16 shards, would that put Andonalsium back together
A: <big grin> That’s a RAFO! (And just like that I get a RAFO card for Christmas!)
Q: What color is Autonomy’s shardpool on Taldain?
A: RAFO. Really good question though.
Full disclosure, Drew McCaffrey gave me the third question. Thanks, Drew!
