About the Author

Brandon Sanderson creció en Lincoln, Nebraska. Vive en Utah con su esposa e hijos y enseña escritura creativa en la Universidad Brigham Young. Su primera novela publicada, Elantris (Nova, 2006), fue recibida por el público y la crítica como una interesantísima renovación del género de la fantasía. También ha publicado una brillante trilogía: «Nacidos de la Bruma (Mistborn)», formada por El imperio final (Nova, 2008), El pozo de la ascensión (Nova, 2009) y El héroe de las eras(Nova, 2010), junto con la precuela, Aleación de Ley (Nova, 2012), donde asienta las bases de su imaginario alomántico en un mundo de bruma y cenizas.

El aliento de los dioses (Nova, 2012), una obra de fantasía épica en un único volumen en la línea de Elantris, Sanderson inició con El camino de los reyes la primera parte de una magna y descomunal decalogía, El Archivo de las Tormentas, de la que Palabras radiantes es la segunda parte. Los últimos títulos publicados por Nova son su aclamada novela Steelheart, primer libro de la Trilogía ReckonerInfinity Blade (la Espada Infinita): Redención y El Rithmatista.

I'm Brandon Sanderson, and I write stories of the fantastic: fantasy, science fiction, and thrillers.

In November 2020 we saw the release of Rhythm of War—the fourth massive book in the New York Times #1 bestselling Stormlight Archive series that began with The Way of Kings—and Dawnshard (book 3.5), a novella set in the same world that bridges the gaps between the main releases. This series is my love letter to the epic fantasy genre, and it's the type of story I always dreamed epic fantasy could be.

November 2018 marked the release of Skyward, the first book in a new YA quartet about a girl who dreams of becoming a pilot in a dangerous world under alien attack. The follow-up, Starsight, was released December 2019. Also out that year was the final volume of the Stephen Leeds saga, Legion: Lies of the Beholder, which was also published in an omnibus edition, Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds, that includes all three volumes.

Most readers have noticed that my adult fantasy novels are in a connected universe, called the Cosmere. This includes The Stormlight Archive, both Mistborn series, Elantris, Warbreaker, and various novellas available on Amazon, including The Emperor's Soul, which won a Hugo Award in 2013. In November 2016 all of the existing Cosmere short fiction including those novellas was released in one volume called Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection. If you've read all of my adult fantasy novels and want to see some behind-the-scenes information, that collection is a must-read.

I also have three YA series: The Rithmatist (currently at one book), The Reckoners (a trilogy beginning with Steelheart), and Skyward. For young readers I also have my humorous series Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians. Many of my adult readers enjoy all of those books as well, and many of my YA readers enjoy my adult books, usually starting with Mistborn.

Additionally, I have a few other novellas that are more on the thriller/sci-fi side. These include the Legion series, as well as Perfect State and Snapshot. There's a lot of material to go around!

Good starting places are Mistborn (a.k.a. The Final Empire), Skyward, Steelheart, The Emperor's Soul, and Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians. If you're already a fan of big fat fantasies, you can jump right into The Way of Kings.

I was also honored to be able to complete the final three volumes of The Wheel of Time, beginning with The Gathering Storm, using Robert Jordan's notes.

Sample chapters from all of my books are available at—and check out the rest of my site for chapter-by-chapter annotations, deleted scenes, and more.
