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
The tour dates for Firefight, which comes out this Tuesday, January 6th, have been announced! Additionally, we've put the events on our Calendar on 17th Shard, so when you're on the main forum page, you'll see them! You can also read Brandon's interesting look at superhero novels on i09.
Here are the dates, along with any links to a thread regarding a particular signing. If you make a thread for the signing you're going to, I'll update this! Read more
On the Mistborn Birthright Facebook page there has at last been some information about the long delayed Mistborn game. Originally the game was supposed to come out in 2013. That... didn't happen. But now we have more information. It will come in Fall 2016, guys. Read more
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
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
Crafty Games, the lovely people who makes the Mistborn Adventure Game (and its two supplements!), has an exciting Kickstarter. They are making lovely Allomancy dice that have an Allomantic symbol on the six slot. Guess what, it's already funded, so if you back it, you're definitely getting some really nice dice! (Assonance not intentional.) Read more
Tomorrow, Shardcast returns, and this time it is live and on video! What could go wrong? Sssh, don't remind us about the terrible Words of Radiance release stream, it will be flawless. The stream will begin 6:00pm Mountain time, which is 5pm Pacific and 8pm Eastern. And if you miss it, it'll be on Youtube immediately!
We can't promise it will stay on topic, but we can promise it is at least a shard of a Brandon Sanderson podcast. Read more
Today the Mistborn Adventure Game's Alloy of Law supplement is out now in both digital and print editions. There's an original story from Brandon, and an overview of the people and society of the remade Scadrial, with "information not seen in the novel." Seems pretty great! Read more
Guys. Guys. There's a new Stormlight scene that Brandon has read at his recent signings. It is an early draft, and Brandon says the terminology should not be considered canon (it needs to be firmed up a bit), and most importantly, you really shouldn't read it if you haven't finished Words of Radiance.
