Rants and Stuff / Re: A Tragedy in the BYU Bookstore
« on: April 25, 2010, 05:08:20 PM »
So there's this shelf in the BYU bookstore where they keep all of Brandon Sanderson's books.  Nice big happy display.  Hardbacks, paperbacks, signed and numbered copies of Warbreaker, The Gathering Storm, Alcatraz, it's all there.  I walk by here from time to time, just so that if anyone happens to glance at them going by I can heartily recommend them.  Now the tragedy.  I went by today, and while the pile is still there, the shelf has now been invaded by a pile of Stephanie Meyer's books.  Brandon Sanderson and Stephanie Meyer, on the same display shelf.  Maybe I'm making too big a deal about this, but this is eating my soul. :'(

Welcome to the business of economics, tragic but true, Stephanie Meyers out sold Brandon's books so I'm not surprised that happened.

Still, we can moan and bewail the tragedy, or maybe launch a protest and have a book burning –only kidding  ;D

Me, I'm probably a traitor to this cause though because I've read both authors and enjoyed them, though Brandon's is a little more to my liking than teenage vampire romances –I skipped many a pages of Twilight when the lovey-dovey stuff became too much.

Hello I'm Nathaniel Cassani (actual name). I am an aspiring science fiction and fantasy author (I like and write both generas). I just returned from the Superstars Writing Seminar [], with Brandon Sanderson, Kevin J. Anderson, David Wolverton,/Farland Eric Flint, and Rebecca Moesta. It was really great.

I found this site originally while checking out various connected sites from BYU, and of course since reading Brandon Sanderson's novels he's mentioned this place a few times –don't remember where or in what though.

I work a lot, I like RPG's, but don't play them anymore (I use that time to write), and live in Florida, which is like living in a washing machine that's stuck on the rinse and dry cycle all the time –its really rainy, and then the sun comes out, and then it drenches you all over again the same day.

My social networking pages if your interested.

Brandon Sanderson / Re: Rare footage of the Ashmounts!

Well, just one Ashmount (for now).

Yeah, it's the volcano in Iceland. But it's kind of interesting to see what the world of Mistborn might look like.

That was a neat video. Thanks for sharing it.
