Around the Cosmere - 12/21

Hey All!

So, once again, it's time for an update on all things Brandon. And, in our last news post before the holidays, it's my pleasure to congratulate Brandon on behalf of everyone here at 17th Shard on the completion of the first draft of A Memory of Light, the final volume of the Wheel of Time series. According to his most recent tweets (which won't be collected on his website until next week), A Memory of Light will likely require about a dozen revisions, and be ready for a fall release.


Speaking of twitter, as of Monday, we have Brandon's latest collection of posts right on schedule. For any new comers, Brandon collects his Facebook and Twitter posts weekly and uploads them on his website. For anyone who hasn't caught the twitter bug, or dislikes reading posts in reverse (since Twitter places the most recent posts at the top), Brandon's post collections are a good way to stay updated on what is going on in his life. In this collection, he talks mostly about his impending completion of AMoL and Koloss Head-Munching Day (also known as Brandon's birthday).

Signing Reports

Threads for both the Orem and West Jordan signing are in the events section with all the information gathered there, so if you are interested, head on over and check them out. Thanks to Zas for doing the write-ups! Brandon confirms that Demoux is one of the world-hoppers in the pure-lake scene, and reveals that, although the reference in the Alloy Ars Arcanum to shield the emotions of others is a typo, there ARE some people who, if they trained a special way and knew what they were doing, COULD do this, which is cool. For other cool tidbits, read through the above links, Zas really did a great job!


The Mistborn Adventure Game is officially out, and this thread already has lots of interesting discussion on it, so head over there if you've read the game materials and are itching to talk about it, or have found an interesting tidbit to share.

Here, we have FirstRainbowRose to thank for finding out some interesting information at a Magic Draft regarding the chronology of Alloy of Law in relation to the second Mistborn trilogy. This thread is also interesting, and Peter, after his own fashion, has been giving some very cryptic answers, so if you are in the mood for a puzzle, head over there. Also, in the Warbreaker forum, Windrunner has started a cool discussion about who can return.

In site news, we now have a Reputation Finder which can tell posters which posts their new-found reputation points come from.

I think that's all for tonight. I know it's a short post, but I think everyone is feeling the holiday combination of rush and relaxation which is detrimental to productivity. I hope you all enjoy nonetheless.

Happy Holidays!
