p> has posted a new preview chapter from Words of Radiance.  This is an interlude chapter introducing a new character in a part of Roshar we haven’t seen before.  It was apparently chosen for its non-spoiler-ishness.

Words of Radiance is on track to release in March 2014.

The cover for Stormlight #2, Words of Radiance, has been revealed. has the art and comments by artist Michael Whelan.

Hot on the heels of this comes word that the novel’s release date has been tentatively moved to March 4, 2014 because Brandon needed some more time to work on revisions.

We began hearing last night that The Way of Kings has won the David Gemmell Legend Award for Best Novel.  Congratulations to Brandon Sanderson!  He’s had several prior nominations, even getting two books on the short list at the same time both this year and last year.

Some people saw this as a surprise and an upset, given that Brandon’s other nomination this year was alongside Robert Jordan for Towers of Midnight.  That, too, is a great book, and apparently The Wheel of Time has not received a major award so far.  It certainly should have, and as a WoT fan also, I’d be very happy to see that happen.  But if Robert Jordan only won an award, at long last, for one of the volumes he didn’t get to finish, that would seem to be less credit than he’s really due.  I hope someone will give the series as a whole a shot at recognition for its contribution to the genre.

The Way of Kings, meanwhile, is fully deserving of this win.  (Naw, we’re not biased here. :)  )
