Our time with the Secret Projects is coming to a close for now, but we've got one last set of WoBs from Brandon's spoiler stream, all about Secret Project #4 and its implications for the wider Cosmere! Next week, it's finally coming: our reactions to Brandon's surprise reveal of the prologue to Stormlight Archive 5.

The time is 7:46 in the morning, as the people of Iri mark the time. The sun is rising over the leeward horizon when the Kasitor Bay ripples with a wave that is not quite a wave (fine, it's a bit late for a sunrise, but your memory of the event has painted it with a bit of an artistic license). From the illusory water rises a spren with a body like a jet of water, a hundred feet tall (your memory embellishes the sight a bit again), four arms sprouting from the main body, landing on pillars carefully constructed in the exact locations the arms' hands land every morning. Cusicesh the Protector has arrived, just like it does every morning.

We are extremely excited that at long, long last, we are starting a new podcast series where we reread various Brandon works and talk about our thoughts! This show will be both on our YouTube channel and our podcast feed, and will be weekly! We'll be starting with Mistborn: The Final Empire starting May 7th, so if you want to read along with us, get started on that! We'll be doing a Mistborn book a month until the end of October, right before The Lost Metal's release!

Publisher's Weekly has revealed the cover for Bastille vs. The Evil Librarians, the final entry in Brandon's Alcatraz series! Bastille is cowritten with Janci Patterson, co-author of the Skyward Flight novellas, and is due to release September 20th. Additionally, the print collection of said novellas is out, and Brandon and Janci shared a bit about what Skyward will look like going forwards.

Frequent visitors of our Discord server might be familiar with user betweenskyandsea, known on Instagram as heatherly.draws. She is not only talented and versatile in her art, but also incredibly helpful to other artists in our community, and an overall great person to have around. So it goes without saying that we've been looking for an excuse to have her work on something. Well, it turns out that she had a great idea for how to depict the Pantheon archipelago from Sixth of the Dusk (several ideas, actually), and we love what she's done with the place!

The vibrant blues of the water, the variety of Aviar flying over the myriad of islands overgrown with vegetation, and - for the eagle-eyed viewer - a hint of something special hidden deep within the Father, Patji. Make sure you send her your love, friends!

You've been waiting for a physical editions for the three Skyward Flight novellas that came out late last year, and today Skyward Flight: The Collection is out! You can get a hardcover or an ebook with all three of the novellas: Sunreach, ReDawn, and Evershore. The hardcover is just $20 on Amazon (and about the same price on Barnes and Noble), with the ebook at $12. You can also get a signed hardcover off Brandon's store, or get the Gollancz paperback off Book Depository.

For those of you coming to JordanCon 2022, we will be having a Shardcast there! It is Friday April 22nd at 8:30pm in the Camellia room! We'll be doing a shorter and lighter episode (by Shardcast standards, anyway), with an audience Q&A afterwards. These will be recorded and posted on YouTube assuming things don't go horribly awry, but we don't know when as the schedule is packed with all the curveballs Brandon has been throwing.

Remember how last week we said "oh if there are any good WoBs we'll put them at the beginning of Secret Project 2's episode"? Yeah, no, Brandon ruined that immediately by dropping huge lore bombs instantly in the Secret Project 1 stream, so we HAD to do a full episode on that. The first hour has some crazy stuff, so take a look!

This episode, we are delving into Brandon's reading of the first five chapters of Secret Project #1! We have Eric (Chaos), Grace (thegatorgirl), Ala (Rasarr), and Veronica (Cheyenne Sedai)! Next week we will be covering Brandon's spoiler stream on Secret Project #1.

Chapter 1 and 2 of the Lost Metal was read last November at the Dragonsteel Mini-Con, and was posted online in February. It took a bit to record this episode due to sickness and Brandon's recent bombshell, but enjoy! We don't know when future sample chapters will be coming out, but I imagine this will be our last Lost Previews for a while until sample chapters come in earnest.

Hey, everyone!

It's been a little while since we had one of these for you, but between scheduling and post-holidays food comas, art has been taking just a little bit longer than usual. Nothing to fret about, but we wanted to give you a heads up. Both the (last) December and (this) February are in progress, and they are both looking great - just, you know, not ready.

But you are not here for status updates, you are here for witty commentary and pretty art, and this post is going to deliver at least one of those!

Follow us after the break for the complete illustration!

We're getting back to some previews for Lost Metal, this time covering Lost Metal's Prologue! We'll also be covering the reading of chapter 1 and 2 later this week, so even though this is a bit of a late one, we thought it'd be weird to not have Danielle and Marvin talk about the prologue as well!

It's time to wrap up Words of Brandon for a while! This episode we are covering the most recent spoiler stream in December 2021 and there was a lot of fun stuff here! Also, oh boy, we are loopy after five hours of recording these back-to-back. Enjoy!

We haven't done Words of Brandon since July, and there's been a quite a lot to cover! This episode covers some random events, but also FanX in September and November's Dragonsteel Mini-Con. There's spicy stuff here: aethers, dragons, Lost Metal hints, Ian completely despairing... Enjoy!

It's been a couple of months since Evershore, the last Skyward Flight novel(la), came out, and Dragonsteel is getting ready for the launch of the omnibus edition on April 5. Today, "getting ready" means a few new appropriately themed store items that will become available for preorder on March 14. Plus, Brandon's weekly(-ish) update video told us that The Lost Metal revisions (that's draft 3, incorporating beta feedback, for those of you keeping track) are now up to 60%. And finally, the physical edition of Dawnshard is now available in bookstores - good luck to those of you waiting for the audiobook, hopefully yours will be on the way soon!

Follow us after the break for some more details!

Do you want an episode where we talk about just a SINGLE WoB? Yes, it's true, your dream--or nightmare--is here. This WoB had consumed many channels for weeks (including I think most of our staff channels) on Discord. There are such strong feelings that we needed a full episode to delve into it. Not only that, but also get insight into one of the most arcane pieces of lore in the cosmere, and it's kind of Eric's fault.
