  1. Oh, I should download that for my plane trip this week. It looks vaguely steampunky. Of course I always hate rewarding authors for writing books that aren’t in the series I’m actively interested in right now *Stormlight Archives*, Sanderson, please.

    • It’s not intended to be steampunky but is supposed to have the feel of New York of 1910/Edwardian not Victorian. Thus according to Sanderson.

      And just… get done with WoT, please. (There’s a midnight release I’ll skip. He said it would be at BYU as well.)

      • I gave up on WoT when I was in college. After 900000 pages of women jerking their braids and sniffing… well… though Sanderson almost makes me want to go back and try.

        The steampunk book my husband and I are collaborating on is 1895 Pittsburgh so definitely gonna have to give the Mistborn one a try. Plus it was such a cool system of magic. Even if I hated the ending.

        • I HAET WoT and read it because Sanderson is finishing it. Unfortunately, it’s still just more braid tugging and bosom ogling. The pacing is much better with Sanderson at the helm, though.
