Publisher's Summary

An all-new Stormlight Archive novella is the crown jewel of Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection, the first audiobook of short fiction by New York Times best-selling author Brandon Sanderson.

The collection includes eight works in all. The first seven are "The Hope of Elantris" (Elantris), "The Eleventh Metal" (Mistborn), "The Emperor's Soul" (Elantris), "Allomancer Jak and the Pits of Eltania, Episodes 28 through 30" (Mistborn), "Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell" (Threnody), "Sixth of Dusk" (First of the Sun), and "Mistborn: Secret History" (Mistborn).

Originally published on Tor.com and other websites, or published by the author, these wonderful tales convey the expanse of the Shardworlds and tell exciting tales of adventure Sanderson fans have come to expect, including the Hugo Award-winning novella The Emperor's Soul. Arcanum Unbounded also contains a currently untitled Stormlight Archive novella that appears in this audiobook for the first time anywhere.

    "Amazing"

    Here's the deal. I love Sanderson's books, his character creation, plots, the different magic systems. What I don't usually do is collections, so while I was excited for this book I had a bit of trepidation when I started listening/reading it. I shouldn't have feared. Not only were all of the stories amazing. But the fact that a short story for Sanderson is a complete novel for any other author made this book just a collection of books, not short stories. Could not recommend enough.

    "A Great Collection with some spoilers"

    I love this collection! Full of spoilers so I haven't read all of them. Most of these were new to me even though the are free as pdfs in some cases. I love the way Michael Kramer and Kate Reading read these stories and of course Brandon Sanderson writes them so well.

    "Best Credit Use"

    This is the best credit I have spent in a long time. Absolutely loved the stories contained in the collection, as well as the afterwards to each story. I can't wait to hear more!
    P.S. Get this book so worth it.

    "Not his best but not too bad."

    A few slow reads intermixed between good potential and good writiing. While Kramer seems to be rehashing the same character voices again, Kate Reading has seemed to expand her character range.

    "Great stories, butchered names."

    The stories are fantastic! I just wish Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ever bothered to look up or ask for the pronunciations of people's names.

    "overall a very good listen. One nit-pick though"
    Any additional comments?

    Might I suggest to Mr Cramer that the word "dishardic" shouls be pronounced Di-shardic, not Dis-hardic, since that term was applied to both Sel and Scadriel, both of which are home to two shards of Adonalsium.

    "Good, but..."
    Any additional comments?

    I'm a huge fan of Brandon's works...all of them. To prepare to listen to the Elantris story, I went back and listened to the original Elantris book narrated by Jack Garrett. Frankly, while I normally love Michael and Kate, their rendition of the Elantris story in the book ruined it for me. It's like they didn't even listen to how Jack Garrett performed it--the pronunciations were so off that it was hard to follow. I put the entire collection down for weeks for this one performance.

    "Good collection but fantastic finish!!!"

    I need to go back and reread the Stormlight series. The last story in this collection caught me by complete surprise! At first I was not sure I would finish. The lead character was off putting initially. I hung in there and about half way through I knew I couldn't stop.

    "Feels like an easy buck"

    I love Brandon Sanderson's writing and have listened to all his books. That being said, this one feels like an editor grabbed some random pieces and just threw them together. Just not my thing I suppose.
