Old cameo easter egg (no spoilers)

2 posts in this topic

I just noticed an old cameo easter egg that I haven't seen mentioned before. Some people know that a playwright named B. Sablerfils from the Mistborn Era 2 broadsheets is a cameo for Brandon, as "Sablerfils" is a sort of stretched French translation of "Sanderson" (sable = sand, fils = son). Peter confirmed on Reddit that Sablerfils was added by Isaac as a joke.

However, I noticed something else about this cameo today. In The House Record broadsheet in Shadows of Self, there is an ad for an operetta named "A Hero for All Ages" by Sablerfils and a coauthor named Buissonommes. Using the same stretched French translation with buisson = bush and homme = man, you can get to Bushman. I didn't think much of this at first, but then I noticed in the WoR acknowledgements that "Bushman" is Emily Sanderson's maiden name and Brandon's father-in-law Matt Bushman is a musician that has advised Brandon on lyrics and poetry. So I think Isaac snuck a cameo in there for one or both of them as well!

Nice catch! Very very interesting. I love those broadsheets.
