* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Originally, the Cosmere was to have nine Mistborn books and seven Dragonsteel books; with ''Literature/TheAlloyOfLaw'' growing into a Mistborn Era all of its own, Mistborn cycle was changed to thirteen novels. Meanwhile, Dragonsteel was cut, first to five, then to three books.
** The first cut of what now became Dragonsteel was ''The Liar of Partinel'', bits of which are now available online. The novel is now considered uncanonical, with bits of it cannibalized for other novels, and the eventual ''Liar'' rewrite being pushed from one of the first Cosmere novels to one of the last.
