Tor.com has an excerpt from Brandon Sanderson new Novella: The Emperor's Soul

According to Sanderson: "I'm extremely proud of this novella. I think it's my best piece of short fiction to date, and stands as one of the best complete works I've done of any length. For those who liked LEGION, I think you'll like this as much or more. For those who were skeptical of LEGION, know that this novella is not only twice as long, but is also a fantasy story with a great magic system and cool character. It reads more like a short novel than it does a long short story, and does a lot of what I do in my longer fiction."


Adrianna [SypherLily] (sypherlily) I actually enjoyed Legion much more. I felt attached to the characters and maybe it's also because we weren't confined to one room like Shai was?

I still enjoyed it, but if comparing to Legion, even with twice the length I found Legion more likeable.

Am I alone?
