How many times is it acceptable to e-mail Brandon and ask for copies of White Sand and Aether of Night? I requested them several months ago prior to the release of the newsletter prior to the current one and never received anything.

I'm fairly certain there's a sizeable backlog, but Adam (Brandon's assistant) did eventually get back to me and e-mail me White Sand after a couple of months or so.

Just remove the / at the end. It should be .pdf instead of .pdf/

Good, 'cause I'm still waiting. EDIT: After checking my inbox, Adam has just sent me White Sand and Aether of Night!

When this link got pulled up into the main listing it was copied as http://www.brandonsa...er/LiarPt12.doc instead of http://www.brandonsanderson.com/drafts/warbreaker/LiarPt12.doc

- and yes i know they appear the same but the one links to the file and the other is a 404 error. It is because the forum auto-shortens long urls in posts.

Hey, after finishing Oathbringer I wanted to read Liar of Partinel and it seems like neither of those links work. One give 404 error and the other shows "file not found". Anyone got a copy by chance?

 

Edit: Sorry, it says "site does not exist" to be precise.

I have the same problem. If you find a way to get it again, please post it!

Apologies for the necro, but both of the links to Liar of Partinel still no longer work, and I was wondering if anyone had a link to a copy of it?
Thought I'd post again, 'cause there wasn't a reply to the last post.

Does anyone know where to find a full copy of Dragonsteel? Correct me if I am wrong but I am pretty sure it was part of his Masters Thesis at BYU and so should be in their library. I tried checking their online database and it says that students were not required to submit a digital copy until 2009. Then I searched through the records that they had for 2005, which is as near as I can figure to the year are he graduated. Does anyone know if its just not there, or if I am even looking in the right spot?

You’re definitely not gonna find it online. I believe there are two copies, both of which you have to go to the university to check. And there’s always a long waitlist.

The link to the revised Chapter 1 now works, though the earlier draft containing the first six chapters is still dead. This wasn't intentional but apparently the result of an error when there was a server migration so at some point the other excerpt should be available again. One imagines it's not Team Dragonsteel's top priority though.

As mentioned, it exists only in a physical copy. Or rather, four physical copies according to the website. Two are part of the regular bookshelves and one is part of the Honors Thesis collection, all of which can be checked out... and currently are checked out. And there's at least eleven people waiting in line. There's also a fourth copy which is available to read at the library but can't be checked out. That's what I gleaned from their catalogue (see here). It might be possible to get one of the circulating copies via an interlibrary loan but that would depend on whether BYU will lend it out (I understand they used to at least but I don't know if they still do) and if so whether you're able to access a library that they'll loan it to. Someone more familiar with the topic might be able to provide more helpful details here, I'm just guessing.

So setting that possibility aside your options are to put your name on the waitlist and arrange to be in Provo when a copy becomes available or go there and find a comfy chair in which to read the non-circulating copy... and hope nobody else thought to do the same thing on that day.

So....I obviously do not want to distribute something I shouldn't, with a focus on the italiacs there.

That being said, if someone where to happen to have a copy of the first 6 chapters of original the Liar of Partinel draft, are they, per Dragonsteel Ent, allowed to upload it to the 17th Shard? I don't know how pdf files are looked upon in general, let alone actual Dragonsteel property.  I'm looking towards mods and admins for approval/denial of this.
