New Story: "Firstborn" by Brandon Sanderson
Brandon Sanderson is well-known as the author of 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). And he's an object of enormous public curiosity as the writer who was recruited by Robert Jordan's wife-and-editor Harriet McDougal to finish the epic Wheel of Time series after Jordan's untimely death in 2007. (A Memory of Light, by Jordan and Sanderson, will appear in 2009.)
Now Tor.com is pleased to present the original novelette "Firstborn," a tale of war and sibling rivalry that happens to also be Brandon Sanderson's first published work of out-and-out science fiction. Illustrated by Hugo-winning artist Donato Giancola, "Firstborn" is SF like it used to be. Enjoy.
