Fantasy author Brandon Sanderson was born in Nebraska on December 19, 1975. His published novels include Elantris (2005), the YA novel Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians (2007), and the three-part Mistborn series, consisting of Mistborn (2006), The Well of Ascension (2007), and The Hero of Ages (2008).

Following the death of Robert Jordan in 2007, Jordan’s wife and editor Harriet McDougal recruited Sanderson to finish Jordan’s epic multi-volume fantasy series The Wheel of Time from Jordan’s extensive drafts and notes. A Memory of Light, by Jordan and Sanderson, will appear in 2009.

“Firstborn” is Brandon Sanderson’s first published work of science fiction.
