Brandon Sanderson: Many years ago, before I was even published, I had an idea. A crazy, ambitious idea. An idea for a large interconnected universe of fantasy series where the fundamentals of magic and cosmology were the same, but the stories were all separate. A “hidden epic” so to speak, where the longer the books were published, the more readers became aware of these little connecting threads.
My original plan was for all of this to remain shadowed and hidden for many years. I severely underestimated the enthusiasm of readers for digging into these tidbits and making connections. Indeed, my second book wasn’t out before people began to ask after some of the secrets I’d embedded into them.
The further I go, the more the stories will bleed into one another—as the eventual goal of the Cosmere is to show how these varied and different cultures interact on the large scale. But I intend to be very clear with fans which books deal with the Cosmere at large, and which are more focused on their own world and characters.
