Brandon Sanderson's Arcanum Unbounded brings together eight short stories and additional plot lines which have previously been published. Also included is a completely new story, Edgedancer, tied to his Stormlight Archive series (featuring the popular character Lift).

The author's notes and explanations - detailing Brandon Sanderson's greater universe which connects all his stories - are also worth mentioning as a nice bit of world building for those who enjoy those details.

I believe that some familiarity with Brandon Sanderson's main story lines is required to enjoy a few of these short stories (those pertaining to Mistborn and Stormlight Archives) but this collection also contains enough stand alone content to make it an enjoyable read for those new to the author.

However, I would especially recommend this book for people (like myself) who have been following Brandon Sanderson's full body of work and are eager for more details concerning his many worlds.
