It was still Archive last I'd heard a few weeks ago, but he said his editor wasn't sold on it.

I'm actually not sure either way. It could be chronicle or archive.

Kaz, of course I saw it. I just thought it sounded like far too much fun to ask it again. Even though he'd already answered it like 90 times.

Chaos, his "Maybe...." when I asked about shard plate and shard blades being related to andonalsium was much the same.

Hero of Ages, are you saying we should all just start trying to guess what the address would be for this awesome chart and hope one of us eventually finds it? I'm game, if you are   ;) .

Hmmm... I'm thinking more and more that I need to arrange to read Dragonsteel and ask Brandon for White Sands and such. But i digress. Glad that everybody found my report useful. I actually got RAFO'd much less than I expected to.

I understood him to be saying that it would be like an Easter egg.

I have a copy of White Sand that I would be more than happy to forward to you, with permission from EUOL or Ookla of course.

I will face my fear;
I will let it pass through me;

Only I will remain.

Just a side note: He said in an interview on his blog that the who killed question wouldn't be worked in until book three.  (I think that was in the original splitting announcement)
"The custom of royalty in referring to oneself is to naturally employ the royal 'we'.  We are very happy, we are very sad, we are bored and suffer from ennui.  For a royal prince there's no such word as 'me', It's always 'we'.  So rightfully I should be two or three, don't you agree?"

Link? I hesitate on this one, since I would think that if the information has already been given, he wouldn't be refusing to answer it and it would be all over the internet by now, especially WoT forums.

See, and I'm trying to find it.  Although, the thought just came to me that he might have said it when he told us about the situation in class, so I'm going to check my recordings and see if that's what it was.  If so, I'm not sure what I should do because I was expressly told NOT to put those online.  I've got an idea, but really I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.  Meanwhile, I'll continue to look online.  But I SWEAR I read it somewhere.

The official word from Harriet is RAFO on when and where Asmodean's killer will be revealed. Let's leave it at that.

Alack and alas, I guess I should've stuck around to hear your epic questions... oh well.

When I asked him my silly question about Hoid's nonappearance in Alcatraz, I think he mentioned something about a steampunk YA novel called Scribbler (having a hard time remembering even though it was just last Saturday), but I don't remember its connection to the Andolasium 'verse thing.

Grah, I'm useless. But on the plus side, I'm no longer lurking! :D

More then likely what he said was that Al and Scribbler AREN'T shard worlds, thus they won't have Hoid.  (That's basically what he told me when I asked about Hoid in Al.)
