"Sixth of the Dusk" doesn't have much that directly ties it to the Cosmere. Is this a world we'll see later?
It is not hugely important to the cosmere. We will see signs and hints of it, but don't expect a book set there.
You have seen people from that place before.
And if I were to speculate more on which one, you'd say...
Then I would say RAFO.
… kind of a general-
Most people that I’m writing about now are all dead.
Is it up into the third trilogy of Mistborn?
It is that era, yes.
Sweet! That’s what I thought.
It might be a little bit before that trilogy, but it’s that era.
A Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Cosmere, if you will…
Now, you’ve got to remember that at the point that this comes out… the collection’s been interesting for a couple of reasons. For one reason, the collection’s coming out before Sixth of the Dusk happens in the Cosmere, right. And so Khriss gives an introduction to each world, so you’ll find her introduction to First of the Sun to be a very interesting introduction that doesn’t know things that you know because of that. In addition, the star chart is a star chart created by people who are not spacefaring. And so it is a star chart more along the lines of… it may not be one hundred percent the scale and things like that, like they’ve been able to figure out a lot of things by using the Cognitive Realm, so they’d be like “alright, here’s the relationship”, but it will be a while before you get what feels like a Star Trek star chart. Your star chart you’re gonna get in this is a fantasy star chart, which will give you the relative positions and things like that, but it’s not gonna be like you can measure exactly, which we do have! But I’m not gonna be giving you that. [audience laughs]
Are you referring to Arcanum Unbounded, is that…
Arcanum Unbounded, yeah.
