  1. This looks amazing. I'd love to have it (who wouldn't?)!
  2. I enjoyed the podcast guys. So much to discuss! Next time, I hope you also discuss the secret societies - Ghostbloods, Sons of Honor (Now that Amaram is dead, what happens to them. Who is Restares?) and Diagram (I hate Mr. T and now he is colluding with Odium)
  3. I finished the book yesterday and I'm still not able to figure out how/who gave the vision in which Nohadon is present to Dalinar. (Even at the end of WoR, Dalinar gets a pleasant dream/vision and the Stormfather denies it when asked the next day). Is this not explained in this book or am I missing something?
  4. 1: How did you first become a fan of Brandon Sanderson? It's been a while since I tried fantasy, and I wanted to start again. Found Mistborn. Just blown away. Now I have read all Cosmere novels! 2: Why do you like his books? Personally for me, it is the plot and worldbuilding. I feel like I'm part of his world when reading the novels. Sanderson creates amazing plots with perfect mix of foreshadowing, twists and the 'avalanche' climaxes where everything comes together incredibly. 3: What is your favorite of his books/series? Hard to compare. Emperor's Soul is one of the best novella I have ever read. I love Mistborn Era 1 and I can never forget it the first time I have read it and was stunned by the epigraph revelations. Stormlight Archive is amazing and I suspect it will be one of the best ever once it is done. 4: On a scale of 1-10, 1 being the least, 10 being the greatest, how fanatical would you say you are about Brandon and his writing? I'd say 8. 5: On a scale of 1-10, how fanatical are his fans as a whole? 8.5 6: Any other thoughts you want to include? He is one of the author who is incredibly disciplined, communicates so much with his fans (through his website posts, progress bars and on Reddit) and takes a break from writing by writing something else! He loves writing and I'm proud to be his fan.
  5. This seems really important and significant Uh..oh. I don't feel good about this. Possible foreshadowing? Come on! Another week to wait
  6. We have a WoB saying that Hoid perpendicularity moves. Source: http://www.theoryland.com/intvsresults.php?kwt='Honor's Perpendicularity'
  7. One of my favorite part in this week. I wonder if Dalinar remembers someone mentioning Adonalsium to him before
  8. Seems relevant to Vasher's past. And I always get a good laugh out of his color metaphors.
  9. Could this be a foreshadowing? I hope so. Can't wait to read Kaladin's chapter next week!
  10. Recently Brandon talked about it in Facebook here. There are some interesting tidbits there and to summarize he says "This character may or may not be a Herald - but the text is going to make the answer clear, and I'm not trying to trick you"
  11. Outstanding work Pagerunner! If you intend to keep adding more WoBs in the future into this excel sheet, it will be easier for you to visit https://www.reddit.com/u/mistborn , go through the comments Brandon made in reverse chronological order and look at the context to determine if you should record it. I shamelessly admit to stalking Brandon on Reddit in this way.
  12. WoB on languages and naming in Roshar (probably mentioned elsewhere before) Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/5t9nyy/iamonce_againa_novelist_named_brandon_sanderson/ddlc64q/
  13. Peter said that the third draft undergoes major changes and goes to the beta readers. Fifth draft goes to the copyeditors. (Source: Reddit)
  14. A couple of WoBs. Sources: https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/5t9nyy/iamonce_againa_novelist_named_brandon_sanderson/deb8vb0/?context=3 and https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/5t9nyy/iamonce_againa_novelist_named_brandon_sanderson/dec8edk/?context=3
  15. I had a WoB from San Francisco signing last year that Braize is 9-centric.
