After taking a ten year hiatus from reading Robert Jordan's fourteen book opus, The Wheel of Time, I have recently begun reading the series again. Honestly, I love it just as much as before. Maybe even more. I just finished Knife of Dreams (book eleven) and I'm now diving into book twelve, The Gathering Storm, the first novel of the series co-written by Brandon Sanderson following Robert Jordan's death in 2007. It sucks that Jordan was so close to finishing his series. But Sanderson is an insanely talented writer, and from what I have read so far, and from what I have heard, he has done a wonderful job concluding the series in the final three books.
I found a series of lectures by Brandon Sanderson and thought I would post them here. For anyone thinking about writing in Sci-Fi/Fantasy, you should do yourself a favor and watch them all. They're very informative.
LECTURE 1 (PART 1) - INTRO TO SCI-FI AND FANTASY
LECTURE 1 (PART 2) - IDEAS ARE CHEAP
LECTURE 1 (PART 4) - GARDENERS VS ARCHITECTS
Below is a complete list of all accepted authors for the first four issues of Evil Jester Presents. Please note, since we didn't make our pledge amount through our initial Kickstarter campaign, we are now going through Indiegogo for a new pledge amount of $5000.00 (just a third of the original pledge amount). This will cover all costs for the first issue of EJC. So far we have raised just over 3,000 dollars (as of 5-3-13). With only 11 days to go, it might be close, so please consider donating.
