 “Stephen Kotowych writes the mythic into the realism of life in modern day, proving that myths never die; they linger on well into the future.” - SF SiteAward-winning author Stephen Kotowych has been hailed as one of speculative fiction’s “talented up-and-comers” by Publisher’s Weekly, and as the author of “gloriously wild ideas” by Locus. Now, in SEVEN AGAINST TOMORROW, he brings together a collection of new and previously published short-stories, heralding his arrival as one of the most exciting new voices in SF. From a symphony played on the rings of Saturn, to a love that defies the very bonds of time; from a young girl’s destiny driven by a magic sword, to a young boy’s confrontation with the robots who raised him—here are stories of wonder and awe, imagination and humanity, that will transport you from the edge of the cosmos to the intimacy of the human heart.

SEVEN AGAINST TOMORROW includes an introduction by the author, original illustrations, and behind-the-scenes commentary on the origin of each story.

Now featuring a bonus 8th story! "Under the Shield": a novelette of love and murder set against the backdrop of a world torn apart by cold war and terror, all driven by the inventions of Nikola Tesla!

An all-new 120-page Stormlight Archive novella, "Edgedancer," will be the crown jewel of Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection, the first book of short fiction by #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson.

The collection will include nine works in all. The first eight 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)
“White Sand" (excerpt; Taldain)
"Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell” (Threnody)
“Sixth of Dusk” (First of the Sun)
“Mistborn: Secret History” (Mistborn)

These wonderful works, originally published on Tor.com and elsewhere individually, convey the expanse of the Cosmere and tell exciting tales of adventure Sanderson fans have come to expect, including the Hugo Award-winning novella, “The Emperor's Soul” and an excerpt from the graphic novel "White Sand."

Arcanum Unbounded will also contain the 120-page Stormlight Archive novella "Edgedancer," which will appear in this book for the first time anywhere. It is a story of Lift, taking place between Words of Radiance and the forthcoming Oathbringer.

Finally, this collection includes essays and illustrations for the various planetary systems in which the stories are set.
