He might want to knock out a few of those Stormlight books asap then...its been a while since Book 2 came out at this point.


Is there a release date for Book 3 yet? Per his webpage, he's 78% done with his 1st draft...doesn't sound promising...even for a guy that writes as fast as he does.

Still waiting on more news about the WOT deal.

But it seems, with GOT winding down, more companies are looking for the next "GOT".

Though a book series with only 2 books out? Yeesh.

Maybe they'll split the books into 2 films each.
Either that or they'll have to rework them a whole lot.

Given the relative lack of action in both books, I think alot of it could be cut away. A ton of what Brandon gives us in both books is just really great background on his universe rather than actual activity.

Granted, a mini-series or even a 10 episode GoT style setup would be far better.

What utter clowns they have selected to write the screenplay. I'm hoping their script gets rejected, and they hire someone competent to rework what these guys come up with. Just looking at the movies they've written before makes me dread what they'll do with Sanderson's novels.

On Sanderson's part, I'm sure the check cleared so that all he cared about. If he was smart, he gave himself veto power over the scripts but that might be too much to ask.
