Allomancer Jak and the Pits of Eltania – Episodes 28 through 30 (2014) by Brandon Sanderson

I originally read this story when it was included in supplementary Mistborn materials, but am reviewing it here as an inclusion in the 2016 “Arcanum Unbounded” collection.

It’s a fun little pulpy adventure story set in the Wild West era of the Mistborn series. It’s nothing super compelling, but it definitely succeeds as what it sets out to be. The footnotes are too much though. Too on-the-nose, and too excessive. Apart from that, there’s nothing really I have to complain about with the story. It’s just a fun, thin bit of pulpy worldbuilding for the series.


I give it two big rocks, and a vial of tin.
