Brandon Sanderson est l'auteur qui a été choisi pour terminer le cycle de la Roue du Temps de Robert Jordan. Il st en interview sur le web.
Il parle d'abord de son admiration pour l'oeuvre de Robert Jordan :
"Amazon.com: What about his fiction do you particularly enjoy?
Brandon Sanderson: Robert Jordan's genius, in my opinion, was in his ability to blend the familiar with the original. When I read his books, particularly during my younger years, they felt like fantasy to me without reading like the same fantasy books I'd read so many times before. By now, he has become his own archetype, but at that point he was just so much more fresh than anything I'd read before. To this day, I love his world-building and his ability to get deep inside a character's mind and show you who they are and how they feel. As I've grown older, I have come to appreciate his ability to work lavish description and extensive world building into his stories without breaking the narrative. Reading his books is a treat for both the senses and the mind."
et il explique qu'il va se coller à l'écriture de ce tome dans les prochains jours.
Amazon.com: What are you currently working on, and what's your deadline for the Jordan book?
Brandon Sanderson: As of very recently, I'm done with my next two books both for Tor and Scholastic. That leaves an entire year open to work on A Memory of Light. I don't know how long it will take me, but that's how long I have to write it. (My deadline is in December.) Right now, I'm focusing on re-reading the entire Wheel of Time series through again with an eye for how the characters think and speak. I should start working on the text itself sometime in February. --JeffV"
