Re: Critique ! [La Voie des rois - Brandon Sanderson]

Blog de Sanderson a crit:

Next year, I will be spending a lot of the early months blogging about THE WAY OF KINGS. A lot of people have been asking about it, and Tor has nudged me to begin speaking about it more. There WILL be more info about TOWERS OF MIDNIGHT too, but I'll probably be holding off on that for a while. I know you're hungry for more information. I'll give you what I can, but I've been asked to be more secretive about these books than I normally am, and (as I have said before) I feel it is respectful to keep to Harriet's wishes.

Re: Critique ! [La Voie des rois - Brandon Sanderson]

Cest sr que le synopsis officiel ne rvle pas grand chose... Il fait mme limite fantasy basique, je trouve.

Heureusement pour les claviers en dtresse, Sanderson avait livr plein de dtails qui font envie dans une trs intressante session de questions/rponses pour Barnes & Noble il y a quelques temps dj. Et l, tout de suite, on sexplique mieux la comparaison avec Dune...

It happens in a world where hurricane-like storms crash over the land every few days.  All of plant life and animal life has had to evolve to deal with this.  Plants, for instance, have shells they can withdraw into before a storm.  Even trees pull in their leaves and branches.  There is no soil, just endless fields of rock. 

According to the mythology of the world, mankind used to live in The Tranquiline Halls.  Heaven.  Well, a group of evil spirits known as the Voidbringers assaulted and captured heaven, casting out God and men.  Men took root on Roshar, the world of storms, but the Voidbringers chased them there, trying to push them off of Roshar and into Damnation. 

The voidbringers came against man a hundred by a hundred times, trying to destroy them or push them away.  To help them cope, the Almighty gave men powerful suits of armor and mystical weapons, known as Shardblades.  Led by ten angelic Heralds and ten orders of knights known as Radiants, men resisted the Voidbringers ten thousand times, finally winning and finding peace.

Or so the legends say.  Today, the only remnants of those supposed battles are the Shardblades, the possession of which makes a man nearly invincible on the battlefield.  The entire world, essentially, is at war with itself--and has been for centuries since the Radiants turned against mankind.  Kings strive to win more Shardblades, each secretly wishing to be the one who will finally unite all of mankind under a single throne.

That's the backstory.  Probably too much of it.  (Sorry.)  The book follows a young spearman forced into the army of a Shardbearer, led to war against an enemy he doesn't understand and doesn't really want to fight.  It will deal with the truth of what happened deep in mankind's past.  Why did the Radiants turn against mankind, and what happened to the magic they used to wield?

(Je peux traduire en vitesse, si besoin.)

Il y a aussi un tas dautres infos intressantes dnicher dans cette session, comme par exemple le fait que les mondes dElantris, Mistborn, Warbreaker et Stormlight Archive sont tous lis.

Spoiler:

En gros, les sources de magie des diffrents mondes sont les fragments dun mme dieu bris...


I have seen ever so much evil, and there was none that did not fade when a good sword was waved in front of it.

Re: Critique ! [La Voie des rois - Brandon Sanderson]

Couverture moyenne mais en revanche le synopsis ne fait pas du tout fantasy basque. L'arrire plan mythologique, ces fameuses armures, la disparition d'un pril ancien susceptible de ressurgir, des intrigues politiques violentes: tout cela m'intresse grandement. Vivement la sortie alors!

Re: Critique ! [La Voie des rois - Brandon Sanderson]

Suvudu a crit:

Here is the short interview I shot off to Brandon:

1. Hi Brandon, tell us a little about your novel, The Way of Kings?

    Im writing a blog post about this right now, actually, and Im struggling to pin down exactly how to present the book. Its much grander in scope than anything Ive done before, and thatso farhas defied my ability to encapsulate what its about in any kind of reasonably brief blurb.

    There are three primary viewpoints, one a youthful surgeon who is forced by circumstances into military service, another an aging warlord, the third a young noblewoman who is a self-trained natural historian. Its a deeply personal book about their stories, but at the same time, the narrative is about ten orders of knights who fell, lost their powers, and vanished many years ago for reasons nobody quite understands.

    Im sure as the year progresses, Ill figure out how to talk about it better. Look for a blog post on it in the next week or so. Maybe Ill be able to pin it down by then. wink

    (Robert Jordan once said in an interview something to the essence of If I could have told my story in a few paragraphs, I would have. I didnt. I wrote these books. If you want to know what theyre about, read them.)


2. How were you and Tor able to attain the services of Michael Whelan, one of the genres most esteemed and awarded artists?

    I'm honestly still not sure myself. I've wanted a Michael Whelan cover since before I even started writing my first novel. When I first sold Elantris, I asked about the possibility of having him do a cover for one of my books. I was told it was possible--but it would have to be the right book at the right time.


    Eventually, when I pitched The Way of Kings to Tom Doherty, I did everything I could short of begging (well, maybe there was a little begging) to convince him THIS was the right book. He agreed, and I believe he called Michael personally on the phone to ask him.


3. What do you think of the artwork Michael created?

    ... Does saying I'm speechless count?


4. Is the cover scene representative of the book?

    Perfectly. His interpretation was better than any author could hope to get from a cover artist. The piece is not only beautiful and perfectly representative of the book, it evokes a feeling of epic scope and wonder.


5. Do you know if Michael will be supplying artwork for the sequels to The Way of Kings?

    I honestly haven't asked. I know he's very busy, and I wouldn't want to presume. I suspect it will depend on his schedule.


6. When can we expect The Way of Kings on the bookshelves?

    August 17th 2010.


7. Thanks, Brandon!

    You bet!

Re: Critique ! [La Voie des rois - Brandon Sanderson]

Nouveau billet de l'auteur :

POINT ONE: This book is the start of a longer epic.

KINGS stands at 425,000 words right now. Ill be trimming that down to (hopefully) 380390k when I do the next draft. (Which will be the final draft.) That will put it at roughly double the length of MISTBORN or ELANTRIS. The series is called the Stormlight Archive, and Tor purchased four books from me. Im not planning that to be the end, though Im cautious at locking myself into a certain number of books. (Though I do have the entire series plotted, and am fairly certain I know exactly how many books it will be.) For now, let me just say that it wont be as long as the Wheel of Time, but will be longer than anything Ive attempted so far.

Il y aura donc au moins 4 tomes.

POINT FIVE: Have I mentioned that its big?

[...]

There are thirty magic systems in this world, depending on how you count them, and around six thousand years of history Ive mapped out. There are dozens of cultures, a continent of enormous scope, and a deep, rich mythology.

Wahoo, 6000 ans d'histoire, mais que c'est impressionnant... rolleyes

Nouveau billet sur son blog :

KINGS final draft, THE GATHERING STORM in Audible's tournament + Updates
Posted on 03.29.10Categories: Mistborn 3 Podcast The Way of Kings The Gathering Storm Audiobooks

I mentioned on Twitter and Facebook that THE GATHERING STORM needed votes in Audible's 2010 tournament. Last I heard, it was beating THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE by four tenths of a percent. Voting ends today sometimeactually it may be over by the time you see this message, but go vote anyway (if you think it should win). If it gets to the next round, it will be up against the winner of BEAT THE REAPER vs. ALWAYS LOOKING UP.

In the most recent MISTBORN 3 annotations, I talk about Sazed taking action and Marsh encountering Goradel. And in this week's Writing Excuses episode Dan, Howard, and I talk about writing an epic. You may imagine we have a bit of experience on this topic, so check it out.

I'm working on the final draft of THE WAY OF KINGS in order to meet its April 8th deadline, and over the past few days I've posted on Twitter and Facebook breakdowns of how many words I'm cutting from each chapter. This has confused some readers who have asked me not to cut anything out or to save them for an eventual "writer's cut" edition. Trust me on this onethe book you'll get on the shelf is the writer's cut, and you wouldn't like the writing as much if I didn't go through and do the trimming on this draft. Sort of like a director shoots a lot of film and then edits it into a coherent narrative later, I tend to overwrite on my first draftsthe language is more wordy than it needs to be, sometimes a character will come to the same realization multiple times as I'm working out where best to fit it in, that sort of thing. In my final draft I go in and trim out all the fat. We talked about this in an episode of Writing Excuses last year; if you're curious about the process, give it a listen.

So the words I'm cutting in this draft aren't anything you're going to miss as a reader. Now, sometimes I will cut an entire scene or heavily rework a section, but that usually happens in earlier drafts than this. I do save the cut scenes in case they contain something I want to use somewhere else or just for posterity. In the Library section of the website I've included some deleted scenes from ELANTRIS, MISTBORN 1, and MISTBORN 2check those out if you want to understand why it's a good reason those scenes are gone. Long after WAY OF KINGS is out, some of its cut scenes or early draft sections may end up on that page. We'll see.
