Exactly the same size!! Given the fact that Tor's maximum  book size was topped by Brandon in WOR =)

They could new prints. I Almost calling to they to say "Hey guys guess what we gonna need a new print, hope that you doesn't mind " =)

yeah, they better get a new machine.

 

Brandon's creativity canst not be stifled by a mere printing press!

Same length as WoR, just smaller font.

If you count 250 words as I page, I'm betting somewhere in the... I dunno. 10,000 page range?

Not long enough? :)

 

Dammit GHM!  I was going to say the same thing!

 

To be fair though, you can lose the question mark.  We all know it won't be long enough.

Too true. It's usually for this reason that I don't start series until they are complete, but with Sanderson I just can't not buy and read them!

It will be too long before it arrives.  In my hands it will be perfect.  As soon as I finish the last page it will have been too short.

Brandon's book release dates have overriden Christmas for me. I get a warm and fuzzy feeling inside, just thinking about it.

13000+, if it still comes out around the same time then there'll be more to read.

Poor Jesus. Nobody cares about his (arbitrarily decided) birthday anymore.

If you considered the Cosmere a single series, it might have been a few decades before you could start. :P

 

Ah, an Elantris through Dragonsteel readathon sounds wonderful...

Well if he actually wrote a decent book once in a while. He's worse that GRRM when it comes to following it up. Just saying is all . . .

It'll be long enough for me. I'll always want more, of course, but I really want my mini story arcs to end.

He always used ghostwriters, too.  Kind of makes you wonder why he couldn't just write down his own words instead of getting somebody else to put their own spin on it.   :P

Not even a Holy Ghost as well. Sheesh some Saint.

I saw a guy in Brooklyn earlier who was drooling and mumbling to himself. Either you know who is back. Or Jezrien is a worldhopper.

 Somewhere between 'as long as it needs to be' and 'too short'.

 

 Assuming The Winds of Winter and The Doors of Stone release in 2016, I want Stormlight 3 to be another mega-behemoth so that I can tell people I've done all my book shoping for the year... though in reality all three probably wouldn't last a month...

 

 2016 - THE YEAR OF EPIC EPIC-FANTASY!!! (maybe....)

 2016 - THE EPIC YEAR OF EPIC-FANTASY!!! (maybe....)

 2016 - THE EPICALLY EPIC YEAR OF EPICALLY EPIC-FANTASY!!! (I'll stop now)

Luckily I'm not totally crazy!

 

Though I did wait until Sanderson was tapped to finish the WoT before I started that series. I had a feeling it wasn't going to get completed before RJ passed. He was an amazing writer now that I've started the series, but I just couldn't stand the though of an unfinished narrative.

Words of Radiance was a bit over 400,000 words. Stormlight 3 should be at least 300,000 but most likely shorter than Words of Radiance and also could be shorter than Way of Kings. But it all depends on what Brandon feels best covers the story he wants to tell in this book.

If he does this, I will march over to Utah to give him a piece of my mind. Of course, I'm a slow walker, so stormlight 4 will probably release by the time I get there and make me forget about 3, but still. That would be sad :(

Hardback or paperback? Because I believe those page counts are different.

Or Kindleback? Those all three have different pagination I would think?

a stormlight book under 1,000 pages would be incredibly dissappointing.

 

the entire series should surpass 10,000. a nice round number.
