Bestselling fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson to visit Taiwan

Taipei, Dec. 28 (CNA) Bestselling author Brandon Sanderson will visit Taiwan next February to meet with fans at the 2015 Taipei International Book Exhibition. The American author of the popular "Mistborn" and "The Stormlight Archive" series will attend three events on Feb. 14, according to Cite Publishing Ltd., the Taiwanese publisher of his books. Sanderson will talk about his work and take questions from 1 p.m.-2 p.m. at the Taipei International Book Exhibition. In the next hour after that session, he will sign autographs at the Cite Publishing pavilion at Exhibition Hall 1 of the Taipei World Trade Center, where the fair will be held. Later in the day, Sanderson is expected to meet with Gray Tan, president of Grayhawk literary agency. Sanderson's novels have been praised for their impressive characters, plausible worlds and well thought out rule-based magic systems. "Words of Radiance," the second book in "The Stormlight Archive" series, debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list earlier this year. Three other books that he wrote, in completion of Robert Jordan's epic fantasy series "The Wheel of Time" after Jordan's death, have all reached number one on the New York Times bestseller list. Sanderson said his 2012 visit to the National Palace Museum in Taipei inspired him to write the fantasy story "The Emperor's Soul," which won the 2013 Hugo Award for Best Novella.
