Brandon Sanderson is one of today's best-known and popular epic fantasy writers, author of THE WAY OF KINGS and its recent sequel WORDS OF RADIANCE as well as the final three novels of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series.

Brian McClellan is an epic fantasy writer at the cusp of his career, his debut novel PROMISE OF BLOOD having been published by Orbit in 2013. Brian was also a student of Brandon's in Brigham Young University's creative writing program, an experience that cemented his desire to pursue publication.

Join these two writers as they talk about their newest books, the epic fantasy genre, and writing as a career in a live, online event on May 1st! We'll be taking audience questions via Google Hangout and Twitter.

Would be nice if you announce "spoilers" in the session, for those of us who didn't read the two books in question.

I'm interested in 'writing as a career' part :)

I have a new short story out this week in the horror anthology Games Creatures Play, edited by Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner. When Charlaine invited me to be part of this anthology and explained what it was going to be about, I knew I had to write a story for it. My contribution is called “Dreamer” and is rather unlike anything I’ve ever written—and it’s even a true short story rather than a novella. You can read a preview of it here: http://brandonsanderson.com/dreamer

If you like what you see in the preview, I hope you’ll check the anthology out. I know that horror isn’t something my usual readers necessarily read very much of on a regular basis, but you may be surprised and enjoy it more than you expected.

The anthology came out on Tuesday in the US/Canada and today in the UK/Australia/New Zealand. You can find region-specific store links at the link above.

Here’s the full list of highly talented contributors and stories for the anthology:

• Charlaine Harris: “In the Blue Hereafter”
• William Kent Krueger: “Hide and Seek”
• Jan Burke: “Stepping into the Dead Zone”
• Joe Lansdale: “Dead on the Bones”
• Caitlin Kittredge: “The Devil Went down to Boston”
• Brendan DuBois: “On the Playing Fields of Blood”
• Dana Cameron: “The God’s Games”
• Scott Sigler: “The Case of the Haunted Safeway”
• Ellen Kushner: “Prise de Fer”
• Brandon Sanderson: “Dreamer”
• Mercedes Lackey: “False Knight on the Road”
• Seanan McGuire: “Jammed”
• Adam-Troy Castro: “Hide and Shriek”
• Laura Lippman: “Ice”
• Toni L.P. Kelner: “Bell, Book, and Candlepin”
