Reader photos from recent conventions + Updates


Yesterday I announced the forthcoming Mistborn board game, Mistborn: House War. If you haven’t read that post yet, check it out!

I hit two conventions recently, first Salt Lake City FanX and then up to Wisconsin for Odyssey Con this past weekend. (I will be at JordanCon in Atlanta next weekend.) Here’s a small sampling of photos from the two cons. The FanX photographer was long-time reader Michael Bacera, and the Odyssey Con photos were taken by my assistant Adam. If you know someone in the photos, or see yourself, feel free to tag yourself on Facebook so you can brag to your friends.

In this week’s new Writing Excuses episode, The Environment, with L.E. Modessit, Jr., the latter joined us at LTUE for a discussion centered around the way the environment informs the story. We talk about lead in Roman plumbing, water lilies in Las Vegas sewers, and coal power in the British Empire, and how these examples can help us more effectively use the environments in our stories.

Last week, in Tor.com’s continuing reread posts for Words of Radiance, we saw riots in Kholinar and suspicion in Narak. This week, in Interludes 12 and 13, war has devastated Jah Keved, and we join Taravangian there for the continuance of his strategy.

My assistant Adam has updated the Twitter post archive for April.
