If we had to describe Brandon Sanderson (Nebraska, 1975) with a word, this would be prolific. He isn’t forty years old yet but he has already written several sagas, namely Mistborn, Reckoners, Alcatraz and Stormlight Archive, although most of them remain still unfinished. “I started writing standalones, but they were secretly a big long epic”, confesses Sanderson. Moreover, it is very easy to see he takes his work very seriously since he uses every instant to write something, either if it is in a plane or between interviews. In fact, we find him with a little notebook in his hand, lest he can progress in his work before we get to the appointment.
Despite knowing Sanderson for his big Mistborn epic, he tells us he started working on The Stormlight Archive back when he was a teenager and he actually doesn’t know yet for which saga he will be remembered by. However, Sanderson hasn’t only delighted us with his genuine work, since he had the immense privilege to conclude Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time when he passed away in 2007. “When they offered me the assignment I was stunned, amazed and horrified, all at the same time”, says Sanderson, although he quickly adds that putting the full stop to the saga was a little bittersweet since he felt he would like to keep writing about Jordan’s world and characters.
