Today on the Morning Media Menu, fantasy novelist Brandon Sanderson talked about writing “The Gathering Storm,” the next book in a beloved “Wheel of Time” series by the late Robert Jordan. In addition, Sanderson discussed Simon & Schuster’s new “vooks” and pondered what new reading devices will mean for the next generation of writers.

Here’s more from the interview, as Sanderson talked about the ending of the fantasy series: “I’m one of four people who have read this ending out of the millions of people who are waiting for it…It was a reverent experience, a surreal experience. I don’t think it really hit home for me what I was doing until I sat down and read that…It was a daunting experience saying, ‘This is where the 11th book ended, and this is where I’ve got to end up.’ There was a big gap.”
