  1. Good morning! has posted Oathbringer chapters 10-12.Check out our forum topic on chapters 10-12, and for all Oathbringer preview chapters--and their discussion topic--check out the Oathbringer Preview Chapter Index. As usual, keep Oathbringer discussion in our Oathbringer Spoiler Board and the #oathbringer_spoilers channel in the 17th Shard Discord. Do not post Oathbringer material elsewhere! There's also two Way of Kings Prime Chapters: Merin 1 and Merin 2. Merin, who, remember, is the version of Kaladin in Prime, is insanely different from Kaladin. There's lots of differences in the world. Oathgates exist and are active! Check it out. It's a fascinating look into an old draft.
  2. Top of the morning to you all! has posted Oathbringer chapters 7-9, and the plot thickens! Check out our forum topic on chapters 7-9, and for all Oathbringer preview chapters--and their discussion topic--check out the Oathbringer Preview Chapter Index. As usual, keep Oathbringer discussion in our Oathbringer Spoiler Board and the #oathbringer_spoilers channel in the 17th Shard Discord. But wait, there's more! Yesterday we have a new Way of Kings Prime scene (this one is actually new, unlike the Jek scene which we apparently had since, uh, 2012. Oops), with our good friend "Dalenar." Yeah, the names are pretty wonky in this. This scene introduces proto-Dalinar and also, interestingly enough, the start of proto-Kaladin, who in this version was named Merin. You can see some dramatic differences in this version, because in Prime, Kaladin took the Shards he won. Yup. That kind of makes everything different. Another interesting note: when they say "Awakening" in this chapter, that just means Soulcasting. Clearly they changed the name when Warbreaker came out. It's a fascinating look into Roshar, with so many things different (like no spren). Also check out Brandon's essay above the chapter talking about writing depression with Kaladin. It's like we get an annotation with this scene, too!
  3. Happy Reading!
  4. Your withdrawal is over. has now posted Chapters 4-6 of Oathbringer. What else is there to say? Nothing, get to it! Seems like these will always occur at 9am Eastern time from now on, for sure. Here's our forum topic on Oathbringer Chapters 4-6, and for all Oathbringer preview chapters--and their discussion topic--check out the Oathbringer Preview Chapter Index. Remember, keep Oathbringer discussion in our Oathbringer Spoiler Board and the #oathbringer_spoilers channel in the 17th Shard Discord.
  5. You want new Stormlight 3 content, right? Well, you're in luck: has posted Chapters 1-3 of Oathbringer! You might have read the prologue before (it had been at some readings) but here you have new stuff! I'm not going to spoil a thing about it, so you best head right there for your Stormlight fix before your withdrawal until next week. Here's our forum topic on Oathbringer Chapters 1-3, and for all Oathbringer preview chapters--and their discussion topic--check out the Oathbringer Preview Chapter Index. Remember, keep Oathbringer discussion in our Oathbringer Spoiler Board and the #oathbringer_spoilers channel in the 17th Shard Discord.
  6. As we talked about last week, is posting sample chapters of the third Stormlight book, Oathbringer, and will eventually post all of Part One of the book! And yesterday, they posted the final version of the prologue! The prologue has been at readings before, but this is now the final version. It seems as though is posting these Tuesdays at 12:01am Eastern time, so if you're desperate for the next posting (of the first the chapters), that's when you'll get it. Next week we will be more timely with our news article on it. After all, that's when the real new stuff begins! We already have a forum topic for discussion on the prologue, so head on there to talk about it! We'll also be keeping an index of all the chapters and all their relevant week-by-week discussion topics. We'll assume that next week, when we make a topic on Chapters 1-3, that you've read the prologue, and so in the most recent topic, we'll always assume you have read the past stuff. (Don't skip ahead, as Alcatraz would say.) Remember, only discuss Oathbringer in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board and in #oathbringer_spoilers in the 17th Shard Discord! And also, get hyped!

  7. Brandon said he has convinced Tor to release ~25% of Oathbringer as sample chapters! Whoa! How do you feel about that Sharders? Is that too much? Not enough? Who cares give me Oathbringer RIGHT MEOW?! Considering how big Oathbringer is the free sample chapters will probably be, in total, larger than many stand-alone books! Source:
  8. Hot on the heels of yesterday's reveal of the Calamity cover art on comes a preview of the first few chapters of Calamity! Those of you subscribed to Brandon's newsletter will recognize a portion of this from the most recent one sent out a few months ago, though this is an extended excerpt. Read it now over on io9! I for one find this as exciting as a potato in a minefield, can't wait until the release (only 7 months and 8 days away!). Don't lament the wait though there is plenty of Sanderson-goodness coming out between now and then and the 17th Shard will be here with news on any further developments. Check out our forum topic here to discuss the chapters!
  9. 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. Kate Reading's was pretty good, though the voice for Pattern is... interesting. It sounded more of Gollum and Emperor Palpatine. All I can think of is... Look, at the release, I put a blanket on my head. Emperor Palpatine things happened. Don't judge. Words of Radiance comes out TONIGHT!
  10. 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. Preview Chapters These are the officially released preview chapters, which are in the exact state as they appear in the book. However, a few epigraphs are removed for REDACTED REDACTED reasons. Prologue (Jasnah), Chapter 1 (Shallan), Chapter 2 (Kaladin) Chapter 3 (Shallan), Chapter 4 (Dalinar), Chapter 5 (Kaladin) Chapter 6 (Shallan), Chapter 8 (Dalinar), Chapter 9 (Kaladin) Chapter 10 (Shallan flashback), Chapter 12 (Kaladin), Chapter 14 (Adolin), Interlude 1 (Eshonai) Interlude 9 (Lift) Taravangian Interlude (excerpt) Older Readings We post this in completeness, but remember, these come from older drafts of the book. They are not final, and many of these are excerpts. All of these are interludes, and remember that these were transcribed from readings, so spelling is not entirely accurate. Other readings existed, but have been released in final form, as linked above. Rysn Ym Also, while we're at it, check out some Words of Radiance interior art Tor posted on Wednesday. Coming to the Words of Radiance release party? Let us know, and we'll see you there! Discuss the Words of Radiance sample chapters and the entire book upon release in our Words of Radiance forum.
  11. Tis a sad day for us all. For while there are brand new Words of Radiance sample chapters, Brandon said on his most recent blog that this is going to be the last of them. So, rejoice, as there is more awesome Words of Radiance content! Then, weep because we have to wait till March 4th to read the rest of the book. This time, we get Chapters 10, 12, 14, and the first interlude. We see the first Shallan flashback, the end of part one from Kaladin's POV, and the first Adolin POV, from part two (note the new epigraphs). We also see the first Eshonai interlude, in full, which Brandon read a long time ago, but now we see in its final state! We'll keep you up-to-date with all the latest Words of Radiance news that's upcoming. We still don't have tour dates or any info about the release party, so stay tuned! And with the samples done, we'll have a big post summarizing absolutely everything we know about Words of Radiance coming soon. Discuss the new chapters in our spoileriffic Words of Radiance board! Also, do you browse or edit the Coppermind? Here's how we'll deal with the massive work that Words of Radiance will mean for the wiki.
  12. Of course you were thrilled by the awesomeness of the first bit of Words of Radiance, and you just can't wait for more. Well lucky for you, Tor has the next three chapters up! You can find them here! We've seen part of the Dalinar chapter and its vision before, but all the rest is new! I wonder how many more sample chapters we will get, considering we still have two months left before the book comes out. Discuss these chapters and more in our spoilerific Words of Radiance board on the forums. If you've managed to resist reading Words of Radiance, though, you have more willpower than me...
  13. Guess what? It is January 2014, which means Words of Radiance is coming out in just two months. In fact, if you follow the social medias, you already know that Words of Radiance is basically done (just the final proofs need to be turned in, and then it is done). So you know what that means: new sample chapters. Here are the prologue, chapter 1 (Shallan's first chapter), and chapter 2 (Kaladin's first chapter). This, combined with the Lift Interlude, means you get all the Words of Radiance chapters from the Steelhunt, and more, as the prologue and chapter 1 are totally new. And what chapters they are. Discuss these at our Words of Radiance Spoiler board! Also, you'll see that this image here is the final Words of Radiance cover art, with an improved Kaladin. Stay tuned for more Words of Radiance news. This weekend, we will have a comprehensive guide of everything we know about Words of Radiance so far, so look forward to that!
  14. Welcome back to Around the Cosmere, where we blab about miscellaneous Brandon news and happenings around in the community. It's been a while, so there's plenty to discuss. Most importantly, Brandon is doing on AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit tomorrow, the 15th. It'll be on r/fantasy, but don't worry, we'll update this post the second the AMA appears. It's definitely worth getting a Reddit account, since Brandon occasionally answers questions there. For the cosmere savvy, we've posted a Q&A from an older signing. It has some minor Words of Radiance info, like confirming something people have noted for a while, as well as revealing another order of Knights Radiant. Check it out (and thank Windrunner for transcribing it!). EDIT: Just tonight, Windy has posted a second Q&A, which is our last Q&A in our backlog. Take a gander at that, too! has posted two more chapters of The Rithmatist, so we have all the way to chapter five now. You can start right at the beginning if you’ve missed it, or you can start at chapter four and chapter five if you’re already up to speed. The Rithmatist release is rapidly coming soon, too, just a month away now! For you Wheel of Time fans, the A Memory of Light ebook is at last out for you to peruse, available from all major ebook retailers. Rejoice! Remember how The Emperor’s Soul has been nominated for a Hugo? Brandon’s agent, Joshua Bilmes, posted a blog about how it went from concept to an award nominee in just over a year. It’s a truly fascinating look into the process, and how Tachyon was chosen for the novella’s home. See those amazing bookmarks to the right? The lovely Mi’chelle is making fancy bookmarks in the Alethi script. As you can see, they are simply gorgeous. You can customize them with whatever text you’d like too! They are laminated and amazing. They are $10 for a bookmark with text on one side, and $13 for text on both sides, plus $5.95 for shipping. You can order them here. And if you have questions? You can ask Mi’ch for anything you like in her thread Have you had questions you’ve always wanted to know the answer to? Or are you the type of person who likes to answer questions for the newer members of the board? Well, we’d like your help to submit both question and answers to FAQs we are putting together. Hopefully you’ll find them helpful when they are finished! In addition to the link to that one in the Cosmere forum, you can find dedicated topics for each individual series, too. See you next time around the cosmere!
  15. It's a new year, and it's time for some new news. There's that A Memory of Light thing (you know the one), but we also have Steelheart and The Rithmatist coming out in 2013, and we have some exciting things for both projects. First up, Steelheart, the superhero novel. Entertainment Weekly has revealed its cover, which you can see to the right. There is also a freaking awesome plot summary: Yeah, so okay, I don't know about you but now I'm ludicrously excited for Steelheart. Next up, The Rithmatist. We've previously talked about how the Rithmatist is awesome, but now you can experience it for yourself, as Tor reveals the prologue and first chapter of the book. Just read that prologue and tell us you aren't stoked. 2013 is going to be an awesome year.
