The aMoL 'Memories of Light' Releases

Recommended Posts

For those of you who missed this on the Front Page...

 

Starting November 26th and running till January 8th, the day before the release, Tor will be releasing a line or two from aMoL every day via email which you can subscribe to [and find out more information about] here: http://www.tor.com/memories-of-light/register

 

Once this goes active we'll have a thread for discussion of the lines (possibly just this thread re-vamped).

Suggestion: Perhaps this thread should be stickied and all the "releases" edited into the first page to avoid a new thread everyday.

 

That's more or less what I'm thinking.

Probably want to spread the critisism over as long of period as possible. :dry:

 

Yes DM loves to keep the "critisism" going. It's all that's sustaining these savages. Never mind that the majority of it is valid and the issues are very real. I just wish these people would cover their eyes and pretend it is all perfect. Whoever heard of anything good coming out of "criticism" after all? ;)

Glad I didn't have to say it lol.

 

I for one welcome this given that I wan't my opinion swayed. I want the terror that I'm feeling prior to the release of aMoL to be beaten back. So, hopefully my comment in another thread about how there's already been too much material released to merit a good sign of things to come is proven wrong by releasing more material.

Just a question: is it okay to post the lines here? I mean tor obviously wants us on the newsletters and that would stop people from subscribing.

So, the description of what these things were going to be seemed kind of vague to me. Color me curious...I'd imagine it's going to be something that won't spoil the book, but man, by the time this book comes out I'll have already read half of it in a patchwork manner. And yet I can't resist more.

With TGS, they released all of the Chapter Titles but people's speculations as to what the chapters contained, for the most part, were wrong. So I think TOR just wants to keep internet buzz and chatter at a maximum until release day.

I think it should be fine. It will be small tidbits. The "subscribing" thing is a way for them to make sure they have your email so they can interest you in(sell you) other books after AMoL. Good business tactic to be honest.

Yes, it is, provided its done within the spoiler rules in existence (i.e. don't go posting them on the General Wheel Board or in a thread specifying no spoilers beyond a certain point).

 

At this point I suspect I'll create a single thread for discussion of the lines, and see how it goes from there--if there's need for more threads we'll make them.

So does this mean that the book is ready to be distributed? Seems weird to wait another 50+ days to get it.

No. It is currently printing right now. Which means that whatever little "memories" they will reveal will be beyond modification.

So TOR will be releasing one line or two a day?

 

I can imagine the first release:

 

"The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again...."

 

How upsetting would that be?

Sounds like it will be a few different types of teasers....

 

To celebrate this tremendous moment, decades in the making, we will be releasing daily previews of the final volume. Sentences, words, paragraphs, chapter titles...memories, if you will, of light.

 

You gotta wonder which single words could be worth teasing, if they are being literal with that one.

Names of characters could work as single word teasers... say 'Asmodean', for instance.

"Tempest."

"Go Light"? (They did say "words", as in the plural :smile:)
