We've just sent Brandon Sanderson's new novella, Legion, to the printer, so you can look for it to ship in 6-8 weeks. We have yet to receive any of our large online retail or wholesale account orders for this title, and have been very conservative on the print run. These days, Brandon regularly hits the best-seller lists. The first printing of our trade hardcover is limited to only 3000 copies, a fraction of the size of Brandon's usual printings. There are only 1000 copies of the signed, limited edition.
Speaking of the novella, it's drawn some strong early praise:
From Publishers Weekly:
“Reality and illusion, sanity and insanity, are but subjective labels in this thought-provoking foray into a world where visions abound like the biblical demons the title evokes… The conclusion is left clouded in ambiguity, and Sanderson suggests that the big questions may be beyond our ability to resolve.”
From Pat's Fantasy Hotlist:
“The novella format keeps the pace moving, and all too quickly we reach the end, hoping for more. There is a lot more depth than meets the eye, and I have a feeling that Legion is a brief introduction to what should be an interesting and entertaining series. I also like the fact that Sanderson was ambitious, even if with a novella he couldn’t work with the sort of scope he is used to… Here’s to hoping that we’ll have the opportunity to discover more about Stephen Leeds and his hallucinations in the near future, and that those new adventures will also be in the form of short stories or novellas. I feel that writing short fiction forces Brandon Sanderson to write with a much tighter focus, which makes for a more satisfying reading experience… Legion should please Sanderson’s legions (sorry, couldn’t resist!) of fans and gain him some new followers. God knows I’m looking forward to what comes next!”
