    Interview: Nov 7th, 2009

    Question

    Do you have new stuff, or new ideas?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes—one is The Silence Divine, a world like ours where you gain magic by diseases; another is a world where the only superheroes are all evil super villains and a group of regular people called the Executioners gather to hunt them down and take them out.

    Interview: Nov 13th, 2009

    Brandon Sanderson

    He's planning another stand-alone story about a world where virus and germs have evolved and possess magic powers. So if you catch a cold you can fly, when you get over it, you can't any more.

    Interview: Oct 15th, 2010

    17th Shard

    Just in general, how is Stormlight Archive related to the rest of the cosmere? Or can you say?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I will tell you that one of the novels I skipped is actually set in the same solar system.

    17th Shard

    Oh...so this is the series that that book shares.

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes, this is the series that the book shares that I skipped. I was planning to do it first, but now was the time to do the Stormlight Archive. So you will eventually see a book set on a planet in the same solar system. You could just pick out in the sky of Roshar if you were watching when ..., and it may even get mentioned because it's a fairly close planet.

    17th Shard

    Is that on Divine Silence?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Silence Divine happens there.

    17th Shard

    What is the name of that planet?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Hmm...should I tell you?

    17th Shard

    Yes!

    Brandon Sanderson

    Oh, Peter says no.

    17th Shard

    (laughter)

    Brandon Sanderson

    You got PAFO'd.

    17th Shard

    (laughter continues) Go ask Peter and find out.

    Brandon Sanderson

    No, it's like, Peter and not find out.

    17th Shard

    (still laughing) PANFO.

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yeah, PANFO'd, Peter and not find out. Good.

    17th Shard

    (more laughter) We just won't leave.

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yeah, so, I will tell you the name of that planet once it is out like I've told you the rest of them.

    17th Shard

    Ok, fair enough.

    Thorondir

    Does Bavadin hold a Shard?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Interview: Nov 19th, 2011

    Orome

    I also asked what project he would like to tackle next.

    Brandon Sanderson

    I'm assuming he meant after Stormlight Two. He said he really would like to get Elantris 2 out in time for the 10th anniversary addition of Elantris, which will have extra art and other bits in it. after that one, he says he would love to do another stand alone, and said The Silence Divine would be his choice.

    Interview: Sep, 2012

    ROSHtafARian

    Will the fact that Roshar and the Silence Divine planet exist in the same solar system come into play at all in The Stormlight Archive, or is that only relevant for later books?

    Brandon Sanderson

    It's mostly relevant for later books, but there are some things here and there.

    Interview: Sep, 2012

    Arcanist

    1.A few years ago you posted a long post about your future plans on your website: Do you plan a post like this again or could you perhaps describe the current version of your plans right here?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Sure.

    BOOKS YOU WILL SEE SOON: (The books that are done.)

    AMOL: January

    The Rithmatist (once named Scribbler): Summer 2013

    Steelheart: Fall 2013 or spring 2014.

    BOOKS YOU WILL SEE SOMEWHAT SOON: (Working on right now.)

    Stormlight 2: Hopefully Fall 2013.

    Shadows of Self (New Wax and Wayne): 2014

    OTHER:

    Alcatraz 5: I own the rights again now, and hope to write this book sometime in the near future.

    Stormlight 3: Goal is to write this soon after Stormlight 2

    Steelheart and Rithmatist Sequels: I will probably try to do one of each of these between Stormlight 2 and 3.

    MAYBE MAYBE:

    Elantris 2: I'd still love to do a sequel for 2015, the 10th anniversary of the book's release.

    Warbreaker 2: Long ways off.

    STALLED PROJECTS

    Dark One: Unlikely any time soon.

    The King's Necromancer: Unlikely any time soon.

    Death By Pizza: Turned out mediocre. Won't be released anytime soon.

    The Silence Divine: Will be written someday.

    White Sand: Will be written someday.

    Mistborn modern trilogy: Will be written during the gap between Stormlight 5 and 6.

    The Liar of Partinel Didn't turn out well. Scraped.

    Not a lot of changes from back then, except that Steelheart got finished and Rithmatist got a release date for certain.

    Interview: Jun 20th, 2009

    Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

    Some as of yet unwritten book that I can't remember the title of, but know that it included the word Divine. Maybe Ook can help me out here. Anyway, it has a magic system in which the magic is caused by bacteria. Basically, the bacteria and parasites want their hosts to survive as long as possible, so they give them magic. The example Brandon used was that if someone caught the common cold, they could fly until they got over that cold.

    Interview: Jun 20th, 2009

    Brandon Sanderson (paraphrased)

    Over-arching thing with the Shards of Andonalsium: Brandon told me tonight that he actually has a chart/list thing with all of the books that he's planned in the shards universe. His exact words were something about having an arch over thirty-six books involving the shards of Andonalsium. Which makes me wonder if we're going to get some of the story about Andonalsium. He also said that there were only a few lines in each book to give us clues. Apparently there's something in the HoA, but I didn't notice anything when I read through it. Of course, I wasn't looking for it. He mentioned that there were 36, or possibly 38 (he couldn't remember which) books that would be in this universe. They included all of the Mistborn books (all 3 trilogies), all of the Stormlight Chronicle, all of Dragonsteel, Elantris, Warbreaker, White Sands, the other book that I mentioned but can't remember the title of, and others. I'm excited.

    Footnote

    The "other book" mentioned is Silence Divine.

    Interview: Aug 8th, 2013

    Question

    Is that Shard on the world of The Silence Divine?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Oh, you mean Ashyn. Ashyn is mostly barren with small fertile patches.

    Interview: Sep 24th, 2013

    Question

    What would you like to be working on? Do you have any ideas bouncing around in your head?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I'd like to write — the book I've wanted to write for a long time, I'll probably do it as a novella, about the planet where catching a disease gets you a magical talent. And I'll probably do that as my next novella, next year. So in between projects I'll do that one.

    Footnote

    Referring to The Silence Divine set on Ashyn
