The second book in Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Chronicles, Words of Radiance, hits physical and virtual bookshelves today. So enjoy this conversation between the author and legendary publisher/ Tor Books founder Tom Doherty, about how to break into the biz, the future of Sanderson's fantasy worlds, and more!

FYI, there will be an io9 review of Words of Radiance coming early next week. Also, despite having only read The Way of Kings and part of its sequel, I'll put Sanderson's books above The Wheel of Time series without hesitation.
