Mistborn Cover

WARBREAKER Audio, Weekly Updates

The first two parts (of three) of the GraphicAudio dramatic presentation of WARBREAKER are now available. As with their other releases (such as ELANTRIS) it's a full cast recording of all the text of the book except for the removal of most dialogue tags (he said, she said) and the replacement of some description with sound effects. I think this is a great way to experience the story, and I recommend it to any fan of audiobooks and radio dramas. You can get it over at the GraphicAudio website in CD or mp3 form. (The first part CD set is also available on Amazon with the next two parts coming soon. And there is a standard unabridged reading coming from Recorded Books on October 4 that I believe will also be showing up on Audible eventually.)

In the most recent MISTBORN 3 annotations I discuss how well TenSoon's wolfhound body fits him, assassination and the inspiration for Fadrex, and Spook's belief in Kelsier and the mental effects of Allomancy.

Finally, the most recent Writing Excuses podcast episode is the last one we recorded at the World Science Fiction Convention with the illustrious Mary Robinette Kowal. In this episode we answer more audience questions about characters and worldbuilding. Give it a listen—and if you haven't had a chance to hear our episodes featuring Mary, I highly recommend checking them out, especially the first one, which Howard, Dan, and I agree is one of our best episodes of all time.
