Over a decade ago, people started manifesting strange, incredible powers. One side effect of this was an awareness of alternate dimensions—some of these powers could reach into other realities, other versions of Earth. Though infinite dimensions are present, most of these are unstable, existing only as vague possibilities.

A few of these worlds, however, are stable. These r

THAT book is coming out in November, and is the beginning of a different sci-fi trilogy, I think, so it could be awhile before he has room to write this YA trilogy, in between his Cosmere writing schedule... I think he needs to write the last Mistborn Era 2 book next year and another YA book before gearing up for Stormlight Archive #4, which will take 18+ months to write...(less)

Oh, look at that. We only have to wait until TWENTY EIGHTEEN to maybe get some Calamity answers. And YET . . . I'm so excited that I'm (obstinately) sitting on my grabby hands.

ONLY YOU, SANDERSON. *shakes fist*

Once again, I nothing to say to you beyond:

Can't say I expected this series to ever exist. Should be interesting to see how, if at all, this new series will overlap with the Reckoners series. Also, it looks like these series protagonist is female so that should be an interesting departure from David. ...more

Calamity spoilers! Thanks to some fine folks in Seattle, we know who the protagonist of this will be: (view spoiler)

Also, someone tell Brandon to take a nap now and then, maybe go to his kids' school play or something... seriously, this is getting ridiculous. If he didn't write like a damn hurricane I'd be despairing over yet another project, but as it is I'm just afraid of burnout.

So Brandon has just announced in his newsletter that The Apocalypse Guard has actually been pulled from publication for the time being. This isn't the publishers fault - it's actually a decision made by Brandon personally because he just wasn't happy with the final outcome. Here's a little snippet of the newsletter to explain:
"The worldbuilding, now that the book is done, feels clunky. The character (who is very inactive at the beginning of the book, and has an arc dealing with that) just com

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve read your book. That’s the great thing about an amazing novel, you can read it over and over and get something new out of it. ... If you have some great stories like this one, you can publish it on Novel Star, just submit your story to hardy@novelstar.top or joye@novelstar.top

I need and want this in my life! I guess it's somehow related to his Reckoners trilogy which I need to read. And the Mistborn trilogy too. I know, I still haven't read a Brandon Sanderson book. I'm ashamed, but will rectify it! ...more
