New Brandon Novella "Snapshot", House War Expansion Funded, + Unfettered II!


Hey great news everyone, the Mistborn: House War Kickstarter reached 250,000 USD earlier this morning which means Crafty Games will begin development on Mistborn: The Siege of Luthadel! They've also announced a surprise stretch goal to add a new card to the game.  And fans of the cosmere will be pleased to here that there will be a Hoid card, though it's not exactly clear if it will be in the base game or be available some other way.

In other news a new novella by Brandon has been announced.  It is called Snapshot and a print run will be released by Vault books in February 2017.  Here is the description given by Vault Books:

Quote

Snapshot is a Science Fiction detective story following Anthony Davis, a cop assigned to Snapshot Duty. In this vivid world that author Brandon Sanderson, has built, society can create a snapshot of a specific day in time. The experiences people have, the paths they follow—all of them are real again for a one day in the snapshot. All for the purposes of investigation by the court. 

Davis’s job as a cop on Snapshot Duty is straight forward. Sometimes he is tasked with finding where a criminal dumped a weapon. Sometimes he is tasked with documenting domestic disputes. Simple. Mundane. One day, in between two snapshot assignments, Davis decides to investigate the memory of a call that was mysteriously never logged at the precinct, and he makes a horrifying discovery.

As in all many stories, Snapshot follows a wonderfully flawed character as he attempts to solve a horrific crime. Sanderson proves that no matter the genre, he is one of the most skilled storytellers in the business.

Brandon actually released the beginning of an early draft of this story several months ago to patrons of the Writing Excuses Patreon and also read from it at the release signing for the first volume of White Sand:

Edit: Tor.com has also just posted an interview with Shawn Speakman, editor of the Unfettered II anthology which confirms that Brandon will be including a story in it.  It says that Brandon is still deciding exactly what he will be including but the anthology will be released this November!

So, from the sound of things Snapshot is not Cosmere?

The impression I'm getting it is not.

The idea reminds me vaguely of Legion: Skin Deep, which is interesting. I suspect he'll take it in a different direction, though.

I sort of get more of a Minority Report vibe from the description... but the reading shows that the story will have a better grasp of computer UIs. :D
