  1. Gollancz has the ebook distribution rights for Brandon's books in the UK, so I'm not sure there is a legal way of getting the Tor version there.
  2. Hey there Sanderfans, I just want to let everyone one know that there is a Brandon-themed Humble Bundle available now. It will be running for the next two weeks and features most of Brandon's novellas, a selection of Mistborn Adventure Game sourcebooks, as well as the Graphic Audio editions of Elantris and Warbreaker. Check it out here! The Bundle is broken up into the following tiers: For those who pay $1 or more Firstborn / Defending Elysium Omnibus The Emperor's Soul Legion Legion: Skin Deep Warbreaker Part 1 - Graphic Audio Elantris Part 1 - Graphic Audio Mistborn Adventure Game For those who pay $8 or more Sixth of the Dusk Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell Perfect State Warbreaker Part 2 - Graphic Audio Elantris Part 2 - Graphic Audio Terris: Wrought of Copper - Mistborn Adventure Game For those who pay $15 or more Snapshot Dreamer The Hope of Elantris - Graphic Audio Warbreaker Part 3 - Graphic Audio Elantris Part 3 - Graphic Audio White Sand volume 1 Alloy of Law - Mistborn Adventure Game All told, if you pay $15 you are getting $174 worth of stuff (that's over 90% off). For reference, just one Part of the Graphic Audio adaptations ordinarily costs $14. It is also important to note that The Emperor's Soul, Legion, and Legion: Skin Deep are not available in regions where Gollancz has exclusive distribution rights (pretty much anywhere that used to be part of the British Empire). Also this Humble Bundle is currently (as far as I can tell) the only place to get the solo ebook release of Dreamer and the Graphic Audio edition of The Hope of Elantris. In other news Amazon.com has a listing up for preorder for a solo hardcover release of Edgedancer. Previously, Edgedancer was going to be exclusive to Arcanum Unbounded for five years but it looks like Tor is amending their contract with Brandon in order to give it an individual release in October 2017. Just in time for a re-read before the release of Oathbringer in November! Nauvoo Games, who are making the Reckoners board game, has also posted some pictures on Twitter, from an event they did last month: I do not know for sure if this is the actual art style they are planning for the game, but I really hope it is. I think it captures the feel of the Reckoners trilogy perfectly. I also love that they used the Superman symbol, presumably as the symbol of the Faithful. Unfortunately however, I doubt that will remain in the actual release due to licensing reasons. Especially since the pendant in Abraham's portrait uses a different design for it. Edit: Since the people over at Nauvoo Games are awesome they just shared on Twitter that there will also be minis included in the game and posted a mock-up of a mini for Abraham!
  3. That is superseded by a more recent one where Peter mentions Tor is amending their contract with Brandon in order to do a solo release of Edgedancer.
  4. wot-tidbits on tumblr has also post the following collection of videos/recordings of stuff Brandon did while in Bulgaria:
  5. Okay so dragonssleepinfire over on tumblr went to this signing and asked the following question:
  6. The Aon Aon should be practically exact as I literally traced the image from the 10th Anniversary edition when creating the current version of the vector. The Aon Rao is from several years prior and was based on the old versions of the Aons (I haven't gotten around to updating all of them yet). If you look closely the proportions for the Aons changed with the 10th Anniversary edition, originally Aon Aon was square-ish, but now it is slightly wider than it is tall. I think that the location of the chasm line also may have been changed in the updated Aon designs. If I remember correctly Raoden's drawing of the chasm line for the Elantris mega-Aon is one of the things that was changed in the text.
  7. My thoughts exactly.
  8. 17th shard

    There are no plans to create a mobile app at this point in time, for reasons most recently explained in the following thread:
  9. @DAdam Any update on your recording of the Sunday Signing Line? @BeskarKomrk Quick question, did you record the Sunday Post Signing Line audio linked in the first post? Or am I just not seeing a post in the thread by whoever did?
  10. It is a Core Possibility, and Rithmatist is not officially one (but Peter has an argument that it, and Alcatraz, should be).
  11. Cool, but would you mind posting about this in the event thread? We prefer that people do that rather in addition to/instead of posting singular threads like this one so that reports do not get lost.
  12. I just finished reading it and while I do think it is a good story it is definitely not my favorite thing Brandon has ever written. Which is perfectly alright not everything will resonate as well with everyone, and I'm sure there is someone out there that will love Snapshot in the way I love The Rithmatist, that person just isn't me. I will admit that I did not see either twist coming (that Davis wasn't real or that he was planning to kill Chaz). I think part of my issue is that it could be argued that the ending is essentially "And it was all a dream", but then again there is the question on whether the people in Snapshots are real or not. @ccstat Makes a great point about it being fundamentally hopeful, but I don't know if I agree. Sure one person can make a difference, but in this instance the good guy dies whereas the murderer lives, which is kind of depressing. I do want to learn more about that world though.
