From: ToM Midnight Release Party--Official Reports by Tower Guards

First off, why are you reading this when you could be reading your new copy of ToM?   Second, thanks for reading this!   Third, this post will be updated on occasion as more TGs send me their reports. For now, you get to read my report (jemron) of the Event! Be warned: IT IS LONG! Like Loial, I don’t know the meaning of the word “brief.”   Fourth, I’m still a bit bleary-eyed from the release party, and it was a day and a half ago. Some of the details are crisp in my mind, and some are

Towers of Midnight release date pushed back

Tor Books has announced that the release date for TOWERS OF MIDNIGHT has been pushed back by a few days. The new release date is November 2nd.

First look at THE WAY OF KINGS

Every now and then some non-Wheel of Time news comes along that we feel is worthy of sharing with everyone.

Live from JordanCon!

Hi there! Padra from JordanCon here! Hacking Jason's account....   So what are WoT fans to do when they’re missing out on the greatest Wheel of Time event of the year?

Thinking About JordanCon?

The second annual JordanCon is this weekend! You can watch me freak out in real time on the @Dragonmount Twitter feed!   Here's more information from the lovely Padra, JordanCon's publicist:   Have you ever wondered exactly how Thom Merrilin performed all those juggling tricks? Or speculated on what a sword fight between blademasters would have looked like? Have you spent a lot of time contemplating the tiganza (admit it, you have)? Or maybe you’ve just been dying for the inside scoop

Rand wins the suvudu cage match!

It was an intense battle up until the final seconds. Over 30,000 votes were cast by fans, but in the end, Rand al'Thor defeated Jaime Lannister and won the suvudu cage match... by less than 200 votes.   At one point on Sunday, just hours before the contest ended and fueled by a narrative write-up from George R.R. Martin on his blog, Jaime took a small lead (by about 40 votes). But a last minute rally of fans from the various Facebook and Twitter communities, was enough to push Rand forward one

Rand is in the FINALS of the suvudu Cage Match

Tarmon Gai'don may have arrived early. As we Jaime Lannister[/b] from A Song of Ice and Fire series.   Now, from a narrative stand-point, we all know there's no possible way Rand would lose such a match. It's laughable. But this contest is determined strictly by popular vote. So...   GO VOTE NOW.   It's free to do so.   No registration required.   Tell your friends. Let's send a message to the world of genre fiction that Rand al'Thor is our champion. [url="http://www.dragonmo
