Google it? You do realize this forum is full of sf/fantasy geeks, don't you?

I honestly doubt Brandon will ever come out and explain everything that is in the cosmere.

At a signing, I asked Brandon if there was going to be anything that would tie all of the books in the Cosmere together and he said that with as many books as he has planned (somewhere around 36 or so) a lot of information would be there, but that he did plan on something that would tie it all together.  He didn't say whether it would be a book or what, tho.

Oh, good, this pleases me greatly :) Very greatly :D

I'm always a tad paranoid that the references I make that about other fandoms will be lost on the members of the fandom I'm currently talking to.  So it's good to know that I have fellow DW fans on this board! :D
When to live is to die, and to die is to live, does either really matter?

Well that slapped me in the face. Really tho? He would honestly write all this info that so many people have speculated about into a book or online cheat sheet or something? Seems kind of unfair to the people who have scraped through the pages and pieced it together. But in the end, it's not about the hardcore fans as much as it's about the mass of people who will read his books. ( that sounds like a insult in my head but I don't mean it to be )

I think a book/something that explains it all is good for both hardcore and non-hardcore, though, because, the hardcore go through every book, piecing it together, and then they can double check their findings against what the author says is true compared to what they think - so, it's not just speculation, you can say "Yes! I was right" or "Darn, but that's really cool!" And then for some who don't wish to go through every book, who just enjoy finding out, can learn more from something that explains it all. I don't think he'll do something like a cheat sheet, though. It'll probably be a book that goes through all the other books or something -- not just a simple "This is what is" because that's kinda lame.

I wasn't really implying it would be a cheat sheet, I was implying it could be any number of things that I can't predict.  :D

A cheat sheet would be pretty lame.

Ah. Yeah. I hope it's like a book with a main character that delves into how all the other books connect to one another or something or other - probably the mysterious Hoid character.

Is Hoid a character in Elantris, Warbreaker, and Mistborn? *goes to investigate other forums*

Yup. Hoid is one of the things connecting all the books. When he is described it's always very similar and mysterious. He's always helped somebody in the books. That's usually the give away.

Edit: Removed idiocy.

Is there reason he's not mentioned by name? Or was Brandon just not able to fit it in?

Because Elend never bothers to ask his name. ;)
