Answers (some of) Your Questions Sanderson. The Sultan of Secrets, the Warlord of Worldbuilding. If you’re at all like me, and have read more than just one of his series, this is a must read. With entries from settings we’ve never seen before, to backgrounds on characters that begged for attention, this anthology has something for every fan of Sanderson’s cosmere. (A side note, which doesn’t affect the quality of the work: DO NOT READ THIS until you have read AT LEAST the currently available installments of the Mistborn Trilogies.)
- Christian Boyd
Awesome book Draws you into the larger picture of Sanderson’s work.
- Gunnar Alden
The Cosmere Grows! Brilliant collection of stories, and a wonderful insight into the cosmere in a more connected way. Loved every story inside.
- Sterling Hoeree
Another fantastic Cosmere book by Sanderson! It adds so much to the detail of his universe — a must read for any fan.
- Blake Reynolds
It’s a good read If you want a more in-depth look at what’s going on in the cosmere this book is for you.
- Robert Berndt
Many repeats. A collection of many shorts already published. Not worth the high price if you’ve already consumed those but if you’re new to the Cosmere novellas this is a good place to start as there are many excellent examples here.
- William G.K. Zhang
I’ve been a bit Sanderson fan for the past couple of years, reading all his main books in the ‘Cosmere.’ This however was great in filling in the tiny niches and crevices to explain more of the overall story that’s only hinted at in the main books. I would warn that there is a graphic novel in here and that Google Play books displays it oddly. I would recommend downloading the offline version after you purchase and open it up in a dedicated book reader application for that portion.
- Brian Hanna
The twist you know is coming, but don’t expect Sanderson is a master at new and different twist endings. I am never disappointed whichever direction he takes in ending a story. How he does it is a mystery, but one that I will gladly continue to read.
- Richard Ireland
Tasty! This collection contains some of the most amazing mouthwatering Sanderson books ever written, buy it.
