Day two is in the bag. Here are the highlights:

  • The beloved costume contest is back.
  • Guest of Honor, Marie Brennan, video is up here.
  • There was a really difficult round of trivia. We failed miserably and thus will hold news about this hour-long event. (The questions were hard!)
  • The Dusty Wheel went live again from the couch, and Brandon Sanderson crashed the party! (FYI, wotseries was interviewed in this live show!)
  • There were panels covering what to cut from the TV show as well as diversity in casting and how that matches up against the books. Both panels had great discussions but unfortunately none were broadcast or recorded.

 

Impromptu Late-night Reading and Q&A by Brandon Sanderson

We were notified around 9 PM that Brandon was to hold an impromptu reading and Q&A session. Here are the highlights from that:

  • Brandon read the prologue to Wax and Wayne 4, which took us on a journey back when Wayne was 11. It was fantastic, and quite funny.
  • NEWS: A Wheel of Time fan asked Brandon about his preference for weekly vs all-at-once release when it comes to streaming series. Brandon’s answer was a totally sensical “it depends”. However, when it came to The Wheel of Time, Brandon did not specify his preference one way or the other, nor did he announce how Amazon will release show. But his answer did tell us that Amazon has already made the decision on how they’ll release the show: weekly or all at once.
  • Also new, when asked about how he intends to watch The Wheel of Time, Brandon said he has a nice set up at home and will most likely watch it there. He did indicate that it would be interesting if The Dusty Wheel would do a live reaction show after the initial episodes, and seemed to suggest that he’d like to be available for this type of coverage. So let us hope the Innkeeper can make this happen!
