Many years ago, before I was even published, I had an idea. A crazy, ambitious idea. An idea for a large interconnected universe of fantasy series where the fundamentals of magic and cosmology were the same, but the stories were all separate. My original plan was for all of this to remain shadowed and hidden for many years. I severely underestimated the enthusiasm of readers for digging into these tidbits and making connections. This concept has become even more important to me as, in the intervening years, shared cinematic universes have suddenly become a huge deal in Hollywood.

The cosmere is the greater universe in which The Stormlight Archive - and many of Brandon Sanderson 's other adult fiction books - take place. That is, the books take place on different worlds, and each of these worlds is set in the same small galaxy referred to as the cosmere. All of the books share a single creation myth though not all cultures are aware of it , a single cosmology, and are connected by an overarching story. Brandon has said that one does not need any cosmere knowledge to understand the books, and that they can be enjoyed separately, but it will be necessary eventually to have a certain understanding of Realmatic Theory. Elements of the cosmere are slowly being added into the books, behind the scenes, until they come into the forefront with Dragonsteel and the final Mistborn trilogy.
