Hype Train #8 – Sanderson Update

Honestly, I’m just too lazy to go looking for more book news. So I’ll just stick with the update Brandon Sanderson gave a couple of weeks ago (Aug.31.2017).

In it he says that the Oathbringer manuscript  is officially finished with the traditional “stair toss” of said manuscript down a flight of stairs. We’re also informed about a Stormlight Archive soundtrack kickstarter (which I’m seriously considering), and a coming Mistborn coinage kickstarter.

We’re informed that his next writing project will be Apocalypse Guard, which he plans to write in quick succession over the next 6 months with breaks between for a couple of novellas. (Legion #3 might be one of them.) Release for AG looks to be starting Fall 2018 and then yearly after that, Mid-2019 and Mid-2020 respectively.

2017
June–August: Apocalypse Guard One (Fall 2018 Release)
Early September: Legion 3 (Sometime 2018 Release)
Late September–December: Apocalypse Guard Two (Mid 2019 Release)
Late December: Random Novella
2018
January–March: Apocalypse Guard Three (Mid 2020 Release)
April–July: Wax and Wayne Four (Series finale, Fall 2019 Release)
August–December: Undecided (Rithmatist 2, maybe?)
2019
All months: Stormlight Four (Fall 2020 Release)

Even though we’re looking over the next 3 years it’s still very exciting and deeply impressive to see how dedicated Mr. Sanderson is. Only 3 months for a Middlegrade/YA novel or novella in a month! DAAAAANG!

Reply: Wax and Wayne Series – Book 3: The Bands of Mourning by Brandon Sanderson

Hey Jared,

It’s been a while since I’ve done a proper Reply post. I suppose I’ll should get used to it especial when it comes to Sanderson. (I know you’ve been working on Way of Kings, the tome that it is.)

bandsofmourningTitle: The Bands of Mourning
Series: Wax and Wayne Series; Book 3
Author: Brandon Sanderson
Genre: Fantasy
Audience:  Adult
ROTS Setting: Cosmere, Magic, Industrial Tech
Synopsis: The Bands of Mourning are the mythical metal minds owned by the Lord Ruler, said to grant anyone who wears them the powers that the Lord Ruler had at his command. Hardly anyone thinks they really exist. A kandra researcher has returned to Elendel with images that seem to depict the Bands, as well as writings in a language that no one can read. Waxillium Ladrian is recruited to travel south to the city of New Seran to investigate. Along the way he discovers hints that point to the true goals of his uncle Edwarn and the shadowy organization known as The Set.
Recommendation: This book (& series) is highly recommended!

Warbreaker – By Brandon Sanderson

Jared,

Things have been crazy, and I’d taken a step back from reading these past couple of weeks assuming that I’d scheduled everything as I should and I discover now that I hadn’t. And we all know what happens when you assume.

Wax and Wayne Series – Book 3: The Bands of Mourning – By Brandon Sanderson

Hey Robert,

So I have read all the books prior to this in the series but I didn’t have the time to re-read all of them before this one called to me from the audiobook library and made me listen.

 Title: Bands of Mourningbtsw-square-orig
Series: Wax and Wayne Series; Book 3
Author: Brandon Sanderson
Genre: Fantasy
Audience:  Adult
ROTS Setting: Cosmere, Magic
Synopsis: It’s six months after the end of Shadows of Self and Wax is getting married.
Recommendation: Good book for adults or late teens. Not my favorite Mistborn novel but talked more about the Cosmere which is slowly fascinating me more and more while also driving me insane.
