Some Clips from Brandon Sanderson’s SHADOWS OF SELF Book Tour

Sanderson-M5-ShadowOfSelfUK-BlogBrandon Sanderson‘s fifth Mistborn novel, SHADOWS OF SELF, was released two weeks ago in the UK. Published by Gollancz, here’s the synopsis for the novel…

It is more than 300 years after the events of the The Final Empire shaped Scadrial. Waxillium Ladrian has returned to the capital city of Elendel from the far flung roughs. Elendel is crisscrossed by canals and railways and towers reach for the sky but this is still a city of dangers and of magic; Allomancy and Feruchemy can still change the world. Wax faces many more adventures.

The next novel in the Mistborn series, THE BANDS OF MOURNING, is due to be published in the UK by Gollancz, on January 28th, 2016.

Sanderson took part in some GollanczFest events and also some solo book tour signings and readings. Some of this tour was captured on video, and below you’ll find three clips. First, Brandon reads from the novel…

Next, Brandon twirls his Gemmell Award trophy axe (and announces the tour that has now finished)…

And, finally, an interview with Brandon…

Zeno represents Brandon Sanderson in the UK and Commonwealth, on behalf of the JABberwocky Literary Agency in New York.
