I have never seen an author talk about another author as much as Brandon Sanderson. Specifically, he has posted countless snarky comments about Terry Goodkind on his blog, even stooping so low as to criticize the title of 'Wizard's First Rule' (as if 'Alloy of Law' is better). I first noticed this from Sanderson's feeds but now that I've dug into it all I'm just blown away at how immature this behavior really is.
What's worse is that these guys are with the same publisher (Tor NY).
I'm not the biggest fan of Goodkind but I've loved all of the RJ books and I hate to think the mantle has been passed onto someone that acts like this. Sanderson gets paid oodles of bucks to write books now and insulting other authors that helped pave the way to your good fortune isn't going to be tolerated by fans that love all of the TG's, RJ's, Martin's (and more) of the world.
