How in the heck did I manage to have only two comments on your profile page, both very short and with a 7 year gap. Damn. Anyway you know how you have a picture of minecraft as a front for your album. That I commented on 4 years ago, at that point I didn't for reasons I cannot fathom make the the connection you actually played minecraft until I found a thread from some years ago. So yea, now at least I have a longer slightly more meaningful in however belated context way. Also my actual point: thanks for recommending Stormlight.
The Emperor's Soul? I haven't read it. But Sanderson likes to break up his bigger works with smaller projects like that. The Alloy of Law is another such outing. He's just sort of having fun with the settings he has established between bigger publications.
