There's lot of stuff on Facebook about Sanderson's new novella Legion, which apparently came out last week. However, my local bookstore can't seem to find it... Anyone on my side of the pond have an idea who is publishing it over here??

I'm not a fan of ordering things from the US via Amazon and don't have an e-reader.

$20 for the book ant $15 for shipping... there has to be way to get it from local bookstore. I paid no shipping costs when I got The Way of Kings. Problem is the book doesn't appear to exist in their system... :(

Just had a hunch because Isa once mentioned an English bookstore in Amsterdam, and I found it:

€19 for the book + €2 is a lot better. I'll just have to wait till they actually got it in stock. :)

Publisher's Summary

Brandon Sanderson’s Legion is available for FREE for a limited time only.* Enjoy and share the link to this novella with a friend before time runs out.

Brandon Sanderson is one of the most significant fantasists to enter the field in a good many years. His ambitious, multi-volume epics (Mistborn, The Stormlight Archive) and his stellar continuation of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series have earned both critical acclaim and a substantial popular following. In Legion, a distinctly contemporary novella filled with suspense, humor, and an endless flow of invention, Sanderson reveals a startling new facet of his singular narrative talent, read by Audie Award-winning narrator Oliver Wyman.

Stephen Leeds, AKA 'Legion,' is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills. As the story begins, Leeds and his 'aspects' are drawn into the search for the missing Balubal Razon, inventor of a camera whose astonishing properties could alter our understanding of human history and change the very structure of society. The action ranges from the familiar environs of America to the ancient, divided city of Jerusalem. Along the way, Sanderson touches on a formidable assortment of complex questions: the nature of time, the mysteries of the human mind, the potential uses of technology, and the volatile connection between politics and faith. Resonant, intelligent, and thoroughly absorbing, Legion is a provocative entertainment from a writer of great originality and seemingly limitless gifts.

Thanks for the freebie link. I was thinking this might be good... didnt realize how short it was. It was ok, but not as good as I had hoped... one thing im noticing in BS's personal work... all his characters read the same. They talk the same, nothing really differentiates them to me. Any joke or insult or anything at all could come from any character and no be out of personality or place... anyway thanks for the link
