New York Times best-selling author and Utah resident Brandon Sanderson returns with the conclusion of the Alcatraz vs. The Evil Librarians series, "The Dark Talent."
This fifth book has been long-awaited by fans of the series. According to Sanderson's , the first four books of the series were published by Scholastic from 2007-2010, but the publisher chose not to publish a fifth book and Sanderson purchased the rights back. In 2015, Sanderson announced in another post on his that Tor (Starscape) would re-release the first four books and fans would finally be able to read this fifth and final book.
According to Sanderson, the money shot was actually a candid outtake, captured with Polaroid film after van-Schalkwyk finally granted his subject a smoke break. Sanderson said he was so happy, he put his hands together and sarcastically thanked God. According to van-Schalkwyk, the pose was planned. By who? He’s not sure. Maybe the art director. But he does vividly remember taking the resulting photo with a 500C camera loaded with Ektachrome film.
