eBook cover art for Winter's Heart

Guest Jason



Tor Books has released the cover art for the upcoming ebook release of Winter's Heart, the ninth book in the Wheel of Time series. Each month, beginning this past October, Tor will release the next book in the series in a variety of electronic formats. See below for a full list of links to the released books, as well as a schedule of the upcoming releases.


With each eBook, Tor is including brand new artwork for the "cover". A different artist has been selected for each one, giving the art team at Tor a chance to provide us fans with a variety of styles.


This month, the artwork is by Scott Fischer. The ebook will be released on June 22nd.


As with the previous covers that were released for the ebooks, Tor Art Director Irene Gallo has done a write up about the process behind creating this image. Be sure to check out the full article. Here's an excerpt:

I wanted to see Rand again, it had been a while since he made an appearance on the ebook covers and we had yet to see him in full hero mode. On the other hand, I knew it would be impossible to portray that much power without it becoming a caricature. In the end I asked Scott if he could help us out with the cover knowing he could create a fantastic character study of Rand, one that fans would immediately connect with their knowledge of the story and newcomers would see simply as the heroic-but-tested noble lead.


Wheel of Time eBook News and release schedule

Tor Books plans to re-release each one of the Wheel of Time novels as ebooks according to the schedule below. Each will have new cover art, specially commissioned for the eBook format. Each will feature a different artist.



So what do you think of this new image? Leave your comments below. Remember, we'll have a more detailed report on the overall future of the Wheel of Time print-edition covers at a later time.
