It's May 14th (very early in the morning, but still), and you know what that means: it's Rithmatist day.
But Eric, that isn't a cosmere book, so I'm totally not interested in it.
Thank you, random viewer! Indeed, The Rithmatist is not a cosmere novel. If you're ever confused which books are cosmere and which aren't, just look if it contains Earth in it (for example, Alcatraz is not in the cosmere). The Rithmatist is set on Earth, but as you might expect, it's a little... different. And it's awesome. Read more
So you have almost assuredly known that Brandon has been posting videos of an interlude in Words of Radiance, which features Rysn, a character from an interlude in The Way of Kings. After all, Brandon has posted twelve videos of it over the past while, and posted a high speed version a few weeks ago.
But, maybe you don't really want to watch a video of it. Maybe you just want to scroll at your own pace. Well, fear not, for the great and powerful Windrunner has transcribed the video for your perusal! Read more
A huge congratulations to Brandon, as it was just announced today that The Emperor's Soul has won a Hugo nomination. The Emperor's Soul is simply fantastic--and in my opinion the best of Brandon's shorter works--and is entirely deserving of this honor. Read more
The renowned Michael Whelan--the cover artist of The Way of Kings and many other fantasy covers, such as the cover for A Memory of Light--will return to do the cover for the second Stormlight novel, Words of Radiance. Tor announced the news earlier today.
It was never a sure thing that Whelan would return, as he is incredibly busy. But Whelan wrote some initial thoughts on Words of Radiance, and it seems Whelan was suitably impressed once again. Read more
The second book in the Stormlight Archive now officially has a title: Words of Radiance.. Tor revealed it earlier today and Brandon also has comments on his choice of the title, how it changed from his original choice, The Book of Endless Pages, and more, so click the link to check it out. In case you didn't know, book two has Shallan's flashback sequence.
Also of interest is the working title of book three--Szeth's book--as Stones Unhallowed, which might change, and book five--Dalinar's--The Highprince of War, which we have reported on before. However, Brandon says that title will most assuredly change. Read more
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 Read more
The illustrious Josh and Mi'chelle have gone to the recent signing on Thursday, and Brandon has read a new section of Stormlight 2 (it's untitled still, by the way). And what is it now? It's a Shallan flashback. Short, but oh so sweet. Read more
Our illustrious Josh and Mi'ch have captured of the second half of the Stormlight 2 Parshendi reading and Nahel bonded the crap out of it. This reading starts midway through the scene that's already been read before, but appears to go to the end of the chapter.
And man, it is awesome. We'll leave in the intro. It starts at about 4:10. We hope you like it! Read more
