Interludes

3 posts in this topic

I didn’t really know where to put this, but we all know about the Interlude chapters in Stormlight Archives right? Well ever since Stormlight books started coming out I have seen many other authors include them in there stories. Those include O’Keefe’s Velocity Weapon, David Mealing’s series, A Memory called Empire, plus a few others that I can’t think of right now. Did Brandon invent this format of telling a story? Rotating a small number of p.o.v’s with these interludes that tell what’s going in with the rest of the world? Has Brandon ever talked about any inspiration behind the format he’s chosen?

I wouldn't say Brandon invented this format of story-telling, I'm sure Dune even used Interludes to tell it's story. Stephen King's IT has them, I'm sure American Gods by Neil Gaiman, too. I agree that he did utilise the format to master his story-telling effectively though.

Interludes has always been a thing in some shape I think. An old Stephen King book in swedish that I own have them. But to have random characters who dont show up ever again, like Ishikk or Baxil, might have been something that he did first.
