Questioner

Will there be a leatherbound of Arcanum Unbounded?

Brandon Sanderson

Yes, there will be. We're working on that. I think that might be the next one after Bands of Mourning. Maybe. That is our plan. It's not our plan to do any of the individual novellas as their own leatherbounds, so that means that we'll probably need to wait for Dawnshard until we do it into a collection, so you can get a leatherbound of that.

Questioner

Do you ever call Kaladin "Merin"?

Brandon Sanderson

I don't, actually, which is a little odd for me because I still, once in a while, slip up and use silver instead of tin, and some of these other things. But I don't ever call Kaladin "Merin." They feel really distinct to me, and even though they basically started as the same character, they've become very different characters.

I do misspell Dalinar, now and then. 'Cause I've spelled Dalinar three or four different ways, since I was a teenager, coming up with this character and developing him. I said it always Dalinar, but sometimes Dalenar, sometimes Dalinar, sometimes with an "er" at the end. I get it right nowadays almost all the time, but first draft, Peter had to do a lot of work tweaking some misspelled Dalinars.

Questioner

Is the White Sand novelization still on target for 2025?

Brandon Sanderson

I will start working on it after Stormlight Five is in, and then we'll just see. I'm not gonna make too many promises. 2025's still a little in the air, what we're gonna be doing, because we have all kinds of things in the mix.

Questioner

Any more Indian mythology coming in the Cosmere?

Brandon Sanderson

Kelyani and Rahul, who do our worldbuilding for that, because my grasp of Indian mythology and things is... it's improving, because they're helping me. But they have turned in a rough draft of their world guide for the Indian-inspired world in the Cosmere. So I do think more is going to be coming in the future. But I'm taking it slow, because there are certain things I've done a ton of research on, and I've immersed myself in. And Indian mythology is something new, and Indian culture. So I want to do a good job with it. This is why I brought in experts to help me with it.
