  1. Tenet has now crossed 307 million dollars worldwide.
  2. My favourite Sanderson work is the novella Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell.
  3. There is Robin Hobb. She and Martin are "the faces of modern adult epic fantasy" here if Finland. In non-YA epic fantasy only Hobb, GRRM and Tolkien[*] have managed to hit our bestseller list in last ten years. Only the original Mistborn Trilogy has been translated in Finnish from Sanderson, nothing more. He is substantially lesser known name in my country than Hobb. She is in completely different popularity level, together with GRRM. [*] New Tolkien books like The Fall of Gondolin.
  4. Sanderson said in January 2019 that The Way of Kings has sold over one million copies in the US alone: Link

  7. I have attended only one Worldcon, Helsinki in 2017. In the Hugo ceremony, Ada Palmer seemed to be proud to win John W, Campbell Award. I had no idea that there was something wrong in the name of the award.
  8. I have always thought that the Empire (in the original trilogy) was supposed to represent the Soviet Union. Ronald Reagan called the Soviet Union an "Evil Empire" in his 1983 speech.

  10. I forgot to answer your question. Kirjava translated all three books in the First Law trilogy, but very slowly. The Blade Itself was published in Finnish in 2009, Before They Are Hanged in 2013, and Last Argument of Kings in December 2019, ten years after TBI! Perhaps the books sold poorly, and that was the reason for slow publishing schedule. I don't know. Another Finnish publisher Jalava translated Abercrombie's YA trilogy - all three volumes of the Shattered Sea were released in 2016. I don't know how well they sold. Abercrombie's books have never hit bestseller lists in Finland. There also haven't been paperback editions or second printings. I wonder if we will ever get a new Finnish translation from Abercrombie.
  11. Sapkowski has sold over 15 million Witcher books. Front cover of the new Gollancz edition of Sword of Destiny: https://img.aijaa.com/b/00493/14856171.jpg

  13. I would give it five stars. Assassin's Quest is the best book in the trilogy. True. All ASoIaF fans I know in "real life" are also fans of Robin Hobb. Hobb is a big name here in Finland. Assassin's Fate was released in Finnish in last autumn, and it hit our bestseller list. The Wheel of Time was dropped by Finnish publisher after Knife of Dreams due to declining sales. The same publisher decided not to translate The Last King of Osten Ard because Finnish readers had lost interest in Tad Williams. Brandon Sanderson's original Mistborn Trilogy was released in Finnish, but nothing more from the author. The Lies of Locke Lamora bombed in Finland in 2007, and we didn't got Red Seas Under Red Skies.
