    Interview: Nov 16th, 2013

    Question

    Would a conventional science fiction society be able to travel between worlds via FTL?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes, they definitely could. In fact, built into the system is...you will see space travel. In fact I have several of them plotted, I just can't write them yet. It is going to be really fun. One of my very first ideas for the cosmere was this spaceship going between, and actually, Sixth of the Dusk, which is coming out, the Writing Excuses Anthology one, is cosmere and they mention space travel in it, so...

    Interview: Sep 24th, 2013

    Chris King (Miyabi)

    How and when are you planning on releasing Sixth of the Dusk, the cosmere short story you wrote for Writing Excuses?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Once the entire Writing Excuses team have finished their stories. If you're not familiar we did this thing were each brainstormed a story on air and then we went and wrote them and now we are doing revisions on them. Well, Mary went and I wrote ours, Dan and Howard didn't write theirs, but they're catching up. Once they are all done, we will release them together in an anthology. We will do, the workshopping episodes that we did, we workshopped each others stories, and you'll be able to on Writing Excuses read the rough draft, because that will be included in the anthology, listen to the episode where we workshop it and then read the final draft, which will be in the anthology and get the whole— see what we changed and things like that.

    Were the Starfarers in Sixth of the Dusk from a world we've seen?

    Question

    Were the aliens in Sixth of the Dusk from the Mistborn planet?

    Brandon Sanderson

    RAFO. :)

    All I've said is that they're from a planet you've seen/heard of before.

    Interview: Aug 13th, 2014

    Question

    "Sixth of the Dusk" doesn't have much that directly ties it to the Cosmere. Is this a world we'll see later?

    Brandon Sanderson

    It is not hugely important to the cosmere. We will see signs and hints of it, but don't expect a book set there.

    Interview: Jan 6th, 2015

    Question

    What was your inspiration for Sixth of the Dusk? It feels so, Polynesian or Hawaiian...

    Brandon Sanderson

    I love Hawaiian and Polynesian culture, and it was basically me reading some stories about Kamehameha, and his unification of the islands, and all this stuff, and I'm like, "Ah, I've got to use this someday." It was years later before I got to use it, but I did find a time to use it. And then we got Kekai [Kotaki] to do the illustration, and he's Polynesian, so...

    Interview: Jan 6th, 2015

    Question

    In Sixth of the Dusk, and where that fits in the timeline, are the visitors from anywhere we've seen before?

    Brandon Sanderson

    You have seen people from that place before.

    Question

    And if I were to speculate more on which one, you'd say...

    Brandon Sanderson

    Then I would say RAFO.

    Interview: Jan 17th, 2015

    Question

    Cool. The other big one that I had was, um, how far ahead in the timeline is Sixth of Dusk?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Pretty far.

    Question

    … kind of a general-

    Brandon Sanderson

    Most people that I’m writing about now are all dead.

    Question

    Is it up into the third trilogy of Mistborn?

    Brandon Sanderson

    It is that era, yes.

    Question

    Sweet! That’s what I thought.

    Brandon Sanderson

    It might be a little bit before that trilogy, but it’s that era.

    WeiryWriter

    Are you going to write a sequel to Sixth of the Dusk?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I’m not planning to write a sequel to it, though you may see people from that world, or even Sixth himself, in other books if you keep your eyes open.

    Interview: Oct 12th, 2015

    Question

    Are we ever going to see any more of Sixth of the Dusk again?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes, but not planned for another story. If you watch, you will see references to them.

    Interview: Oct 9th, 2015

    Question

    I began reading your novellas, and I was wondering if you had any plans to follow up… [??? Sounds like: Like the Shadows one?]

    Brandon Sanderson

    You may see these worlds again, and you may see these characters again, but there are no planned sequels to these books.

    Question

    So those guys in the ships [in Sixth of the Dusk] were the Mistborn people from the future, right?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Not gonna tell ya.

    Question

    More of Sixth of the Dusk world?

    Esmale

    In Sixth of Dusk, the advanced society that's trying to take advantage, have we seen them before?

    Brandon Sanderson

    They've been referenced elsewhere.

    Interview: Feb 17th, 2016

    Question

    The visitors in the Sixth of the Dusk, do I know who they are?

    Brandon Sanderson

    I haven’t answered this for sure, but I have told people that it takes place in the future and is related to the rest of the cosmere…

    Question

    Do we know how soon we’ll find out?

    Brandon Sanderson

    It’s a little ways off.

    Question

    Will it be the series the visitors are from [...]

    Brandon Sanderson

    Sixth of the Dusk is not going to be a series. You will see references to them elsewhere but…

    Interview: Feb 25th, 2016

    Question

    I was curious if the world of Sixth of the Dusk was going to make another appearance...?

    Brandon Sanderson

    It will likely make another appearance, I am unlikely to do another story there just because I have too many things to do sequels too, but if you keep your eyes open, you can see...

    Question

    Is Hoid related?

    Brandon Sanderson

    You will see some more.

    Interview: Feb 22nd, 2016

    Question

    At the end of Sixth of Dusk, were those Mistborn space-opera-people that showed up at the end?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Not gonna say. Lot of people have theorized that, but I have remained closed-lipped.

    Interview: Feb 22nd, 2016

    Question

    Have we seen the world mirrored by the Expanse of Broken Sky?

    Brandon Sanderson

    (long grunting and contemplation) I’m not answering that, RAFO

    Question

    What does First of the Sun look like on the Cognitive Realm? I think it’s a whole bunch of grubs, or worms.

    Brandon Sanderson

    RAFO, c’mon you know I’m not gonna reveal Cognitive Realm on the other ones.

    Question

    The Expanse of Vibrance… Nalthis?

    Brandon Sanderson

    (more grunting) You would be making a good guess, if you said that. That’s an informed guess.

    Argent

    That’s not an answer, keep pushing.

    Question

    Is the only reason that Yolen is not reachable, according to Khriss, because it doesn’t have any sentience on it thinking of it as a planet, so it doesn’t appear in the Cognitive?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Ahh, no. Good question, but no.

    Interview: Apr 23rd, 2016

    Question

    Will we ever see the entire map of how the different planets are spaced out in…

    Brandon Sanderson

    Oh, yeah, the Cosmere collection will have a star chart of the Cosmere.

    Question

    A Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Cosmere, if you will…

    Brandon Sanderson

    Now, you’ve got to remember that at the point that this comes out… the collection’s been interesting for a couple of reasons. For one reason, the collection’s coming out before Sixth of the Dusk happens in the Cosmere, right. And so Khriss gives an introduction to each world, so you’ll find her introduction to First of the Sun to be a very interesting introduction that doesn’t know things that you know because of that. In addition, the star chart is a star chart created by people who are not spacefaring. And so it is a star chart more along the lines of… it may not be one hundred percent the scale and things like that, like they’ve been able to figure out a lot of things by using the Cognitive Realm, so they’d be like “alright, here’s the relationship”, but it will be a while before you get what feels like a Star Trek star chart. Your star chart you’re gonna get in this is a fantasy star chart, which will give you the relative positions and things like that, but it’s not gonna be like you can measure exactly, which we do have! But I’m not gonna be giving you that. [audience laughs]

    Question

    Are you referring to Arcanum Unbounded, is that…

    Brandon Sanderson

    Arcanum Unbounded, yeah.

    Interview: Dec 6th, 2016

    Question

    I noticed a very similar fire-starting tool in both Sixth of the Dusk and Forests of Hell [Shadows for Silence]. Two levers you push together and they spark.

    Brandon Sanderson

    I did intend there to be a connection there but it is not a connection that is supposed to be super meaningful. Just that somebody figured something out, and Sixth of the Dusk is many years later. We have them in our world too. This technology has gotten around because the Ones Above have started visiting. I don’t think they’re of a technology level that they couldn’t have discovered it on their own, so it’s not supposed to be some big reveal.

    Interview: Dec 6th, 2016

    Question

    How old is the picture that’s hanging in Silverlight?

    Brandon Sanderson

    The picture in Silverlight is…. Okay, so on Cosmere times, it’s very recent. Buuut, the Cosmere scale is very large. Khriss’s essays are older than it, but not by much. She had that...It is in existence when she wrote the essays, but the essays are much older than Sixth of the Dusk. Okay? Sixth of the Dusk had not happened yet when she was writing these essays. We’re gonna need some dating periods, but we’ll get eventually get that.
