If you've read any of the slush pile you've suffered enough to qualify as a former TLE-er

Yes, I have now.  You're welcome.


Yay! Thanks. Yes, you're before my time. I joined TLE in 2000, long after Brandon's freshman year. :)

Hey, I got my copy of Mistborn in the mail today. That's a lot faster than August 5th, when Amazon said it would arrive. Yea for the USPS.  :)

Entropy was the guy who got stabbed in the back by Kelsier, then dumped in someone else's gardens.  He never appears in the book alive.

Wow.  Sounds like a good friend.  So did you ever leave my cameo in, earning the grisly death by being tossed to flesh eating monsters, or did you change that name so that you can think up an even more horrific fate??

And Stacer - my brief time at TLE was well after our freshman year, I'd guess closer to the 2000 time frame, if I had to take a stab at it.  Brandon was already well ensconced by the point I showed up there, and we weren't roommates anymore.

Then I'll just blame it on my faulty memory.  ;)

I am eerily reminded of when we all found out you assigned Elantris for your class and Ent made the quip about Sprigg standing behind you with a knife and saying "Elantris or eviceration". That wouldn't happen to be related in any way would it?

Red,

I just wrote a mention of a "Captain Conrad" in book three, but he doesn't have any screen time.  I'll see if I can find a better place.  I wrote you out of the ending of book two.  I re-read the section, and realized that it really wasn't that flattering.

I suppose I'm honored that you would flatter me so.

ON the good news side, my faith in the USPS has been restored as my package from Amazon arrived this afternoon (none too soon!!).  SO, I will be reading, reading on this trip down to ABQ.  Yay!  

PS Carolyn says she already found a typo...

Good news for Mistborn: BYU bookstore finally got the book out today, and the big display at the front entrance (the one they make look all pretty, behind the glass), is currently full of nicely arranged copies of Mistborn and Elantris.  I'm really happy to see BYU giving the book good publicity.

Amazon's #1 reviewer has added her review.  It's very positive, if a little confused about some of the plot points.   (Considering she's written almost 12,000 reviews, she probably reads so quickly that it's no wonder if she gets confused.)

She also seems to be giving away some major spoilers, too.

This is unrelated to the book itself, but did the color of the red foil on the cover bother anyone else? The rest of the cover is so pretty.

yeah, actually it really does bother me. It's just too orangey and clashes with the rest of the color scheme.

I like it, it looks much better with the foil then without, the foil enhances the colors in a good way.
