Hey, there's a Wikipedia article on Brandon!

Someone should add more detail than I came up with off the top of my head.

I thought he was a Nebraskan?

I changed it and turned the discussion page into a editing history thing. SE wants to stick some comedy slander in there :P
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

And he lives in Orem, UT, at least that's what it says in his bio printed in Elantris. Yes, I know it is very difficult to distinguish, but there really is a difference.

That was Ent, not me. I didn't post about his current living space, I think. Just fix it. That's what wikipedia is for.

Anyone is welcome to contribute. That's what Wikipedia is for.

I've been thinking about starting an article for several days...

Brandon does not have his Master's.  Ask him, and ask him why.

He may have defended it, but the university will not award him his degree until he submits a specifically-formatted copy of Elantris to the library for their records.  This is the only thing keeping him from it, and he hasn't done it yet.

Don't add sarcastic comments to the wikipedia... SOMEONE's change got reverted.

Rock on!  I was wondering when I'd get one of these.

You guys know how to make a guy feel all warm and fuzzy.  Makes me sad I killed so many of you off in Mistborn.  

(Oh, and someone should add this article to the Wiki big list of fantasy authors.)
