Knife of Dreams Audio Books

Audio Renaissance plans to release the Knife of Dreams audio book in October 2005. Hardly a surprise, but now it's semi-official. Books in Print lists two ISBNs with that date, 1-59397-765-4 as Knife of Dreams audio cassette priced at $69.95 and 1-59397-766-2 as Knife of Dreams audio cassette priced at $41.95. Our best guess is that the pricier one is actually the CD. As of this morning neither Amazon.com nor Barnes&Noble has them listed yet.   Update 3/31/05: The Knife of Dreams audioboo

New Spring Hardcover (Update)

Bowker's Books in Print now lists a Tor trade paperback edition of New Spring: The Novel due out in January 2005. ISBN: 0-7653-1467-3. List price $9.95. However, no other databases including Amazon and Barnes&Noble list this new edition so we're not sure if it's for real or not. We'll keep you posted as we learn more.   Update: Michael has it right. The book itself is exactly the same and the dustjacket is the same except for the addition of judiciously placed stickers. If you were waitin

New Spring Paperback

The December 2004 issue of Locus Magazine lists forthcoming books through September 2005. The Tor mass market paperback of New Spring: The Novel is listed for June 2005. The Orbit edition went on sale December 2 and is readily available. Tor typically releases Jordan mass market paperbacks a couple of months before the next hardback, so this continues to bode well for a Fall 2005 appearance for Knife of Dreams.   More Info: [   [  http://www.locusmag.com]Locus' Magazine Online  ]

Happy Birthday Dragonmount!

It was six years ago today that Dragonmount.com opened up to the public. Although it wasn't exactly pretty back then, the website grew very quickly.
