It's Release Day! with Ben McSweeney AMA + Brandon Twitter Interview


It's the most wonderful time of year again, Brandon has just released a book and the fandom is buzzing. That's right, today Shadows of Self and the 10th Anniversary Edition of Elantris have finally released! Not only that but they are pretty storming awesome. I'm still reeling from a marathon reading session of Shadows of Self (that ending, oh Harmony). If you are still on the fence on whether you want to get either of them check out our spoiler free review of Shadows of Self and our coverage on the Anniversary Edition and its beautiful new maps. Really though, just go and get them now.

Once you've read the books you can join in on the discussion in our reaction threads for Shadows of Self and Elantris.

In other news Ben McSweeney is doing a reddit AMA over in /r/fantasy today, the question thread is already up here. Ben is a fantastic artist who has worked on a lot of Brandon-related projects. He's done the Shallan's Sketchbook pages for Stormlight, illustrations and covers for the Mistborn Adventure Game, and illustrations for the Rithmatist. Not to mention he worked on the broadsheets in Alloy of Law and Shadows of Self. Please go and give him some love by doing what we Brandon fans do best, ask questions.

Brandon is also currently in the midst of a twitter chat with iBooks about Shadows of Self, check out his profile feed for his responses.

 I'm still reeling from a marathon reading session of Shadows of Self (that ending, oh Harmony).

Currently feeling that fan mixture of envy and excitment:
"You' ve read it already! I don't have my copy yet :("
"Ahh it's that good, I'm so excited!!!!"
