WoT 13 title: "Towers of Midnight"

Guest Jason


It was announced today that Book 13 of The Wheel of Time series will be titled "Towers of Midnight". Also, the title of the 14th book, which will conclude the series was confirmed to be A Memory of Light. On his blog, Brandon Sanderson wrote:

After a long round of conversations with Tor and Harriet, we settled on TOWERS OF MIDNIGHT as the title. There are various reasons for this, which I'll go into more once the book is out next year. I'm pleased, however, as this was the title I suggested. It's actually appropriate in an interesting way. Harriet was the one who came up with the name for the first of the three, and the second one gets the title I proposed. And so, we will (as I've been saying for a while) use Mr. Jordan's title for the final of the three, A MEMORY OF LIGHT.


(Note the lack of the word "the" in the title) is currently still being written. Brandon hopes to turn it into the publisher in late 2009 or early 2010. He estimates that the book will be published in late 2010, approximately 1 year from the time that comes out.


A Memory of Light will likely be published a year after that, in late 2011. This was the title Robert Jordan originally wanted the last book in the series to be named.


When it was originally announced that the WoT series would be finished in three novels, the working titles were Gathering Clouds, Shifting Winds, and Tarmon'Gaidon. Those three have changed and are now The Gathering Storm, Towers of Midnight, and A Memory of Light.


So what do you think the title refers to. (I've read Gathering Storm, so I shouldn't comment). Let the speculation begin! Reply in the comments, or head over to #WoT13 to share your thoughts.
