  1. The first of Brandon's annotations for The Way of Kings just went up on his website. The introduction says that he only wrote annotations up through chapter 12, but I'm sure there will be plenty of interesting things to learn. For example, the first post discusses the endsheets, including some early versions of the surgebinding chart which have marked differences from the final chart we ended up with. I never realized that the front endsheet was supposed to be a mural made of stones and gems.
  2. From now until Oathbringer's release this November, Brandon's assistant, Peter, will be posting some deleted scenes from the first two books. You might have missed these last week, but we now have awesome things: a scene from Way of Kings Prime--the version Brandon wrote in 2003--with proto-Szeth, and the first two Way of Kings annotations. Let's talk about the deleted scene, The Way of Kings Prime: Jeksonsonvallano. Clearly this is extremely reminiscent of Szeth, so in this old version, he is named Jek. It's a fascinating look at the differences from the 2003 version and the 2010 version. (Brandon's said Way of Kings Prime has dramatic differences compared to its rewrite.) [UPDATE: This Jek scene is actually NOT new, but, Peter will be posting deleted scenes from Way of Kings. That part is true!] Brandon says about this scene: And indeed, don't read that scene unless you've read the book! If you have, however, it's an interesting look into things that could have been. Next up we have two Way of Kings annotations: the introduction and the indpapers. Annotations were these awesome things Brandon wrote before the Wheel of Time train hit them. He generally wrote these during the copyedit, but now Brandon's team is larger and his time is more precious, so he doesn't do them any longer. That's too bad, because annotations were a fascinating look into the process and definitely revealed lore on a great many things. (The Mistborn annotations are amazing.) Still, I suppose we'd rather Brandon writes new books. Now, Peter says in the introduction that we will only have annotations up through chapter 12, but already these are super cool. Check out the one on endpapers and look at these crazy Surges: Thought? Awakening? Time? Way of Kings Prime clearly must be ridiculously different. It also looks like the Radiants had, uh, some different names, and not our usual Windrunner/Lightweaver/Truthwatcher type things. I hope we learn a lot more about this as the annotations continue! We'll keep you up-to-date as these annotations go live!
  3. I realize the annotations have been a weak point in my cosmere knowledge, and have been reading through them and came to this. It's the from the spoilered section of chapter 47 annotations. So Yesteel know the process to create Nightblood. If the Idrian coalition could do it, then it is most likely a process consisting solely of Awakening. Eliminating the need for any off world investiture. If Yesteel already knows, than it's also perfectly plausible to believe Nightblood is not alone. I really should have read these annotations sooner.
  4. Annotations through chapter 18 are up! There's all sorts of stuff here, including info on different kinds of bubbles, Miles Hundredlives, Ranette, and more!
  5. I did a search of the forums and didn't find a post on this, so I just figured I'd ask and see if anyone knows the answer. (/Looks in Peter's direction...) I have to admit, as much as I love Brandon's books, my absolute favorite part of his writing is actually the annotations. Seeing what was going on in his head as he was writing each chapter (and having him do a little more world-explaining, to boot) is absolutely fascinating to me. But it doesn't look like he's added anything other than a partial bit of AoL annotations in at the past year, at least. Does Brandon have any plans to add annotations for any other books? (Or to release more for AoL?)
