I want to take a quick moment to thank all of you for your enthusiastic response to Calamity. Thanks to you, Calamity is the #1 bestseller on Audible. It’s all because of you that I’m able to continue this crazy career.

In this week’s new Writing Excuses episode, Wonder as a Subgenre, we discuss the Element of Wonder in science fiction and fantasy and how that same element, or “sense of wonder,” can be used to give wondrous flavor to stories whose driving force lies among the other elemental genres. If you have “wondered”: how to use wonder at smaller scales, how to create it with context, or how you might use it in support of other themes of your story, then this will be a good listen for you.

Last week, in’s continuing reread posts for Words of Radiance, Kaladin and Shallan escaped from something and sniped at each other. This week, in Chapter 71, we glimpse Teft’s past before we return to a very gloomy Kaladin, an intent Shallan, moments of stunning openness, and the return of something dangerous.

My assistant Adam is working on updating the Twitter posts archive for February.
