Welcome back to the Splintercast Reads Words of Radiance! In this episode, we see chapters 16-18. More freakouts occur of Renarin. This should be entirely expected. Then other things happen. Because, you know, there's more audio and stuff.

Welcome back to The Splintercast Reads Words of Radiance. In this section, Alyx mentions Renarin and her RP group, Sydney Scroungers, in the first two minutes. If you don't know Alyx, well, I need to tell you something. She really, really likes Renarin. You know how Wit enjoys mockery so much? Alyx loves Renarin even more, and while you think I'm joking, well... you just keep listening to Splintercast and I think you'll see I am not at all.
Here we listen to the second Eshonai interlude, and then we move into the first two chapters of Part Two! Enjoy! Read more
We have a treat for you today. Our illustrious and radiant (see what I did there?) Alyx, also known as FeatherWriter, is doing a very special podcast series where she records her live reactions as she reads Words of Radiance for the very first time. There is crying. There is sobbing. Fangirling. Descent into sleep-deprived madness. It's everything you'd ever want from a reaction podcast, and I guarantee 40% more people will fall in love with her than before (in which case, back off.). Read more
If you're in the US, Words of Radiance is out right storming now. Did you know Brandon has never gotten #1 on the New York Times bestseller list? It's time to fix that.
Is it shipping to you at the moment? Well, go to your favorite ebook retailer--Amazon, Nook, Google Play, iBooks, and Dragonmount--to grab it and devour it. You're on 17th Shard on release day, so obviously you aren't reading it. You should fix that. And if you're not in the US, I certainly wouldn't suggest that maybe you could fool those servers by pretending you are in the US, but, hey. I didn't suggest it either, so that's plausible deniability right there. Read more
This is last minute, but: the release party at BYU tonight will be livestreamed! It is my understanding this will happen via Google+ Hangouts on Air, so it should be accessible from Brandon's Youtube or his Google+ page. We will keep you updated and edit this post with the exact livestream link when the time comes! Read more
You know how when Tor posted sample chapters of Words of Radiance, they skipped Chapter 7? Well, you can at last know what happens, as it has now been posted. You don't get to read it, but you do get to listen to it, at least the first part of it. Read more
Words of Radiance comes out in just a few days. On Tuesday, March 4th, the wait will be over--well, for those in the US. Sorry everyone else But what if you missed some of the preview Words of Radiance content? Fear not, for we have you covered, to hopefully sate you over from the hype you might be feeling. Read more
It's safe to say that Words of Radiance has the most pre-release hype of any of Brandon's solo works to-date. And it makes sense. The Way of Kings was Brandon's best work at the time, and so everyone is wondering, will Words of Radiance live up to the high bar set by book one? This is a sequel that has a ton riding on it. After all, despite the first book's length, there's still so much more of Roshar to explore. There's so many places that The Stormlight Archive can go from here, that it has been hard to predict what would happen in this book, much less a few books down the line. Words of Radiance could fall on its face. So, does it live up to the hype? Read more
Crafty Games has revealed what the first supplement to the Mistborn Adventure Game will be: Terris: Wrought of Copper. We at 17th Shard had thought its next supplement would be an Alloy of Law-era one, but this is not the case. That doesn't mean we aren't excited--to the contrary! Crafty Games has worked with Brandon to develop material that provides a detailed look at the Terris Dominance and its people, which is definitely not something we saw much of in the original trilogy.
