Well, I know one person Elliott is going to make sure to get on our list of interviewees at this Summer’s GenCon: author Brandon Sanderson. It was announced earlier today Sanderson will attend the con as a GoH and have several scheduled events in which he’ll take part.

From GenCon:

Gen Con is pleased to announce Brandon Sanderson as our Author Guest of Honor this year. Brandon is a prolific fantasy author with such book series as Elantris, Alcatraz, Mistborn as well as other novels. He was chosen in 2007 to complete Robert Jordan’s world-renowned Wheel of Time book series.

While at Gen Con, Brandon will participate in seminars and panels with our Writer’s Symposium program, as well as offer limited book signings in Authors’ Avenue. Brandon also will record an episode of writing podcast, Writing Excuses, live from Gen Con Indy.

Born in 1975 in Lincoln, Nebraska, Brandon Sanderson was finishing his thirteenth novel when Moshe Feder at Tor Books bought the sixth he had written. In 2005 Brandon held his first published novel, Elantris, in his hands. Tor also published Brandon’s Mistborn trilogy, followed by Warbreaker and then The Way of Kings, the first in the planned ten-volume series The Stormlight Archive. He was chosen to complete Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series; 2009’s The Gathering Storm and 2010’s Towers of Midnight will be followed by the final book, A Memory of Light, in 2013. A new Mistborn novel, The Alloy of Law, was published in November 2011, and four books in his middle-grade Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librariansseries have been released by Scholastic.

Brandon has enjoyed RPGs for many years, and Crafty Games’s Mistborn Adventure Game was released in late 2011. He is also an avid player and collector of Magic: The Gathering.

Currently living in Utah with his wife and children, Brandon teaches creative writing at Brigham Young University. He also hosts the writing advice podcast Writing Excuses with Mary Robinette Kowal, Howard Tayler, and Dan Wells.
