On June 25th, Gollancz is due to publish a new edition of Brandon Sanderson‘s THE MANY LIVES OF STEPHEN LEEDS! We first shared the new cover some time ago, but we thought it would be a good idea to remind people that the edition is coming very soon!
A collection of the author’s Legion fiction, here’s the synopsis…
Stephen Leeds is perfectly sane. It’s his hallucinations who are mad.
A genius of unrivalled aptitude, Stephen can learn any new skill, vocation, or art in a matter of hours. However, to contain all of this, his mind creates hallucinatory people – Stephen calls them aspects – to hold and manifest the information. Wherever he goes, he is joined by a team of imaginary experts to give advice, interpretation, and explanation. He uses them to solve problems… for a price.
His brain is getting a little crowded and the aspects have a tendency of taking on lives of their own. When a company hires him to recover stolen property – a camera that can allegedly take pictures of the past – Stephen finds himself in an adventure crossing oceans and fighting terrorists. What he discovers may upend the foundation of three major world religions – and, perhaps, give him a vital clue into the true nature of his aspects.
LEGION: THE MANY LIVES OF STEPHEN LEEDS includes the novellas LEGION and LEGION: SKIN DEEP, published together for the first time, as well as a brand-new Stephen Leeds novella, LIES OF THE BEHOLDER.
Gollancz publishes a whole host of Brandon’s work in the UK, including the best-selling Mistborn series, the Stormlight Archive series, the Reckoners series, the new Skyward series, and a few stand-alone novels.
