Peter Ahlstrom is Brandon Sanderson's assistant.

Brandon has been known to describe Peter as "Incalculable", "Indivisible", "Insoluble", "Incandescent", "Inevitable","Immaculate", "Inseparable", "Interpolated" and "Instant".

Brandon met Peter Ahlstrom while attending Brigham Young University. He was an editor for several anime comics, including several for TOKYOPOP, before being hired by Brandon in 2007(ish).

Peter has several cameos in Brandon's work. There's "Ahlstrom Square" in Luthadel[1], "Ahlstrom Tower" in Elendel,[2] Lieutenant Ahlstrom in Shadows of Self, and a "Lord Peterus" in Alloy of Law. In Alcatraz, the green jacket Alcatraz wears is actually Peter's green jacket.[Citation needed] Peet, a member of Bridge Four, is also a cameo.[3] Peter is currently married with two children.
