Sasquan Spokane

Brandon Sanderson is coming to my area for the Sasquan Worldcon in Spokane in September. Unfortunately, I can't afford to attend. Is there any chance he will hold a signing in the area outside the event?

There's a chance. If you really want him to do it, you should contact your local bookstore and ask them to invite him to do a signing while he's in town. 

 

Then again, Brandon's pretty busy, and he may not have time to do the Worldcon AND extra siginings. But that's probably your best shot.

Actually, now that I'm looking at the convention's site, I'm confused about the pricing. Looks like the price that I can't afford is for membership, which seems to include all days of the event as well as voting rights. Maybe. It's kinda confusing. But then there's day rates that don't include voting and are much more affordable. So maybe I'll be going after all.

Who else am I going to get to meet there? I'm really looking forward to it.

I'll be there! I was hoping to find more Sharders attending, too.

People going to Spokane: apparently Brandon is doing a reading from Stormlight 3. Do not forget to come and tell us all about it  :) I wonder if it is going to be the same Kaladin chapter or something new...

"I did a bunch of research on Genghis Khan and some other people, because I wanted to make Dalinar as awesome as possible." (Paraphrased) Also, he asked explicitly that the reading not be posted online until after his Shadows of Self tour is over, so that it's a special treat for everyone who can make it to that tour.

I know... This is why this is so terrible. I feel cursed. What of us international fans who don't live in the States?  :(  :(  :(

But there *is* a recording that can be posted after? Edited by Delightful

Yes. Wetlander recorded audio, and I saw at least 1 other person in the back recording video. I recorded video for the Q&A session he did after the reading, and I'll post that when I get home if nobody else has done so yet.

I'm glad to hear that he'll be doing the reading during the Shadows of Self tour. Now I just have to figure out a way to contain my excitement until October.

I'd appreciate a recording of any Q&A that happened, but would prefer that we here on the Official Fan Site didn't go against Brandon's express wishes regarding distribution of the reading itself.

-I speak here as an individual, not a moderator.

Sounds like the only sensible thing to do. Anyone who has access to Brandon willing to beg him for the good of everyone?

I am not sure what his stance on the topic actually is - all I got from it is "I won't be putting it on my website".

Maybe I'm misinterpreting what you are trying to say here but Megalodon did say that Brandon explicitly asked people to not post recordings/transcripts of the reading until after the tour?

I heard elsewhere, from a reliable source, he did state such thing. It appears to indeed be Brandon's wish the transcript of this new chapter to not be published until the end of his tour.

 

As distressed this thought makes me, it seems to be his wishes and we should respect them  -_- However, I do know it was a Dalinar's flashback from 30 years ago, which is pretty much the extend of my personal knowledge on the matter. 30 years ago.... people that is about when he bonded Oathbringer... 

 

We should all be able to appreciate it by the end of October.... So two more months... Perhaps we'll get it before via the newsletter, I dunno.
