Brandon will be at DragonCon this year, starting on August 29th. No specific details yet, that I could find. Here's the page on his website. https://brandonsanderson.com/upcoming-events/#18021.

Is anyone planning at attending? Anyone willing to record signing lines and/or panels?

I have a friend who is going, I'll try to make sure he records as much as possible.

The schedule is up on Brandon's site; I updated my original post. Lots of signings, most of which are ticketed, so anyone going should make sure to figure out how to get a hold of tickets.

Yeah, I'm going to have to start planning to go to some of these international events, I'd love to start seeing some of these signings live again.

 

That, and I'd have a better position to convince my wife that our daughter should cosplay as Doomslug...

Someone should ask Brandon if he has ever talked to Blind Guardian about making music for the Cosmere. Thanks.

Some audio from DragonCon is up and ready to be transcribed: https://wob.coppermind.net/events/394-dragoncon-2019/ More will be going up throughout the week, so stay tuned and check in regularly if it looks like everything has been done.

Not all signing lines got recorded, it seems like. So if you were there and asked a question, please (oh please oh please) share it with us in the thread! (Yes, anonymous lurker, I'm talking about you! Go ahead and make an account. I know you've been thinking about it anyways.)

There was a reading of the Stormlight Four prologue, which has been transcribed. In case you missed it, we've been discussing it here:

Putting this here as a source

Apple Ravioli: What would happen if you threw Nightblood into a perpendicularity?

Brandon Sanderson: Bad things. Nightblood could collapse a perpendicularity.

 

And separately:

Brandon Sanderson: See, I like science, because you can be wrong with science. In SA4, you will have a character...a scientist..who appeared in the book we're talking about, talk about some of the things he got wrong.

From Braid_Tug

"Oh, this was from the first signing, so not recorded. We asked Brandon about gem cutting tech levels on Roshar. He hedged some. But did let us know that while it was still labor intensive, it was not as bad as Renaissance Europe. That yes, they do have an edge. But would not state what the edge was. Even with us making jokes about Shard scalpels to make the cuts."
