We don't even have Shadows of Self, the next Wax and Wayne Mistborn book, but we now have the cover for Bands of Mourning, as well as a very interesting plot synopsis. Bands comes out January 2016, two months after Shadows. Check out the cover. And if you don't want spoilers, don't read on.  Read more

Brandon Secretly Wrote Another Book, Stormlight 8

Apr 01 2015 08:34 AM by Chaos      30

We have a scoop for you today. Recently, a few of us at 17th Shard got to talk to Brandon, and he had a serious bombshell: he secretly wrote a book. Okay, none of us are shocked but that after the announcement of Bands of Mourning, but what we didn't expect was that the project was actually a fully formed Stormlight novel. Not Stormlight 3, but Stormlight 8.  Read more

New Novella, Perfect State, Comes March 31st

Mar 21 2015 10:20 AM by Chaos      11

Brandon has a new novella, Perfect State, and it will be coming on March 31st, according to this Amazon page. And look at that cover! Team Sanderson is knocking it out of the park with these covers.

Never heard of Perfect State? Yeah, no one did until the Firefight tour, where he read part of it. It's like the Matrix, but "happier". It's an interesting mix of fantasy in the "Matrix," and presumably some sci-fi out of it.  Read more

Shadows for Silence Now Available Individually on Ebook (With Epic Cover)

Mar 04 2015 10:17 PM by Chaos      11

Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell is a short cosmere novella that originally appeared in the George R. R. Martin anthology, Dangerous Women. Now, Dangerous Women is excellent and you really get your money's worth (it's huge), but if you haven't picked it up, you can now get Shadows for Silence individually on the Kindle store.

I can't find this on other ebook sites--though you can find Dangerous Women on ebook--but I presume it will be coming soon. The date this Amazon entry was made was March 3rd, so it was very soon. Maybe we are getting the cat out of the bag a little early...

But guys, look at this spectacular, spectacular cover for this ebook.  Read more

Shadows of Self Cover & Release Date

Feb 23 2015 02:51 PM by Windrunner      13

Big Mistborn news today! Tor has released the cover for the next book in the Mistborn Adventures series, Shadows of Self! This cover was done by Chris McGrath, the same artist who drew the covers for The Alloy of Law and the original paperback covers for the Era One Mistborn trilogy (not to be confused with the YA version of the Mistborn trilogy, which had different covers by Sam Weber).

The book has also been given an official release date of October 6, 2015. While Tor states that this is an "expected" release date, thus could be subject to a bit of change, we've now got a pretty solid idea of when this book will be coming out. We also got our first look at a description of the book.  Read more

Giant Transcription of SLCC Audio

Dec 19 2014 07:48 PM by WeiryWriter      20

Back in September Brandon went to Salt Lake City Comic-Con, and 17th Shard went as well. Josh and Mi'ch were able to get recordings of over 12 hours worth of signings. Unfortunately for copyright reasons we couldn't share the audio publicly but finally the transcription is done. It's a Koloss Head-Munching Day miracle!

I would like to apologize for this taking so long and I hope the rest of you are as excited as I am!
Special thanks again to Josh and Mi'ch for making this possible. Also thank you to Windrunner for proofing everything. There's some very cool stuff in here, so let's get started!  Read more

Shadows of Self and its sequel coming October 2015 and January 2016

Dec 18 2014 07:30 PM by Chaos      3

Brandon has written a big blog post today. Well, actually, he's written a great deal, but today he wrote a blog post about what he spent 2014 doing. Some things are expected, like Firefight, Legion: Skin Deep, The Aztlanian (Rithmatist 2). But then there were some other things.

He not only finished Shadows of Self, the sequel to Alloy of Law, but also wrote the next book after that, titled Bands of Mourning. Shadows will be released October 2015, and Bands will be released very shortly after in January 2016.  Read more
