Welcome to the Brandon Sanderson FAQ

Thanks for stopping by! This page is where my assistants have compiled answers to the most common questions I get asked. Occasionally, as I answer questions that might be of interest to my readers, I'll post those here and mention over on my blog that we've updated the FAQ. If you're looking for deep answers or theories concerning the Cosmere, your best bet is to visit The 17th Shard, my official fan forum.


When you get into questions about specific books, there are major spoilers. Even reading the questions without looking at the answers can be dangerous in this regard. I recommend reading an entire book or series before digging into its section in the FAQ.
