Sanderson is incredible. You know that all of his major fantasy works (except obviously Wheel Of Time) are set in the same large universe? They don't seem like it, but he has, like, decades-long plans to slowly weave everything together in a big giant story. Mistborn, Elantris, Warbreaker, and Stormlight Archives are all connected. There's apparently one character that appears in all of them, too, though you have to be clever to notice.
