The War Between Brandon Sanderson and Pat Rothfuss Continues…

Reddit Fantasy contributor Justin Costa recently came across a signed copy of Brandon Sanderson’s Words of Radiance. Signed, that is, by Patrick Rothfuss.

As we first reported on a year ago, signatures from the two authors can often be found in the wild lurking inside the other’s books. And thus does their rascally rivalry reach across time, space, and airport bookstores… One war, many fronts, and one hell of a beard. Who shall emerge the winner in this war of wordsmiths?

The readers, of course. Always the readers.
