Since Robert Jordan passed away, there have been reports and speculation about what would become of the "other" Wheel of Time novels he had been planning. The topic came to light at A Memory of Light (the final book in the main series).
The topic came up again recently this week when Dominic, from the Keeping the Door][/i] blog.

The document is a PDF that describes how each character and plot thread was left off as of the end of Knife of Dreams. It's designed to print nicely if you want to do that. Click the image below to take a look.
We received a press release this morning from Red Eagle Games, the makers of the proposed Wheel of Time video game.

It's been nearly four years since the release of what Robert Jordan believed was going to be his penultimate novel in The Wheel of Time series, and nearly two years since he passed away. Two very long years. But the Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills. The story is not yet done, and there is more to be told. Much of Robert Jordan's life was tied to these books, and it was important to him, I believe, to see them do
