First off, the part of the prologue just released was amazing! Secondly, can anyone tell me whether the prologue was written by Jordan or Sanderson? Just wondering :]

seeing as every other bubble of evil(as what seems to be happening there) is explicitly defeated by one of the four channeling elements... i wonder if the power wrought weapons would be effected...

if bayrd has some sort of specific oath, you can bet that it was guided by jordan and not some random creation of sanderson.

I can't read this excerpt yet, not now... But I'm thrilled by the sense of excitement it exudes.

 

I was thinking of who wrote this piece here. Jordan or Sanderson, or both?... I'm still on Book 6 in the WoT series, and yet to read "The Gathering Storm" & "Towers Of Midnight" co-written by Sanderson, and right now, I can't tell the difference in the writing style of the two authors shown in the WoT.

 

I know that "Towers Of Midnight" was entirely written by Sanderson guided by the storyline ideas of Jordan (correct me if I'm wrong), & I'm just wondering if this is one of the pieces Jordan originally wrote himself. I think it'd be great if the final book will contain original materials written by Jordan himself, instead of Sanderson editing what Jordan left.

 

Light, I'm So Thrilled... Is it January 8, 2013 yet?!

Simply awsome. What a dark beginning to the "last" book. Now I want more of this than ever before. I think I'll start yet another re-read and hope to have it finnished by the time the last book is out.

I would pre-order thru Amazon but do like supporting my local bookstore even though they are generally a bit more costly.

Enjoyed this bite emensly. Thanks for this.

I am almost done with my third reading of the series and reading this just made me want to read the series again. I could not imagine a worse nightmare than having my entire army disarmed overnight. A fantastic read! I can feel Saidin pulsing through my veins!

Sanderson has told us before that unspecified portions of the prologues of the Gathering Storm, Towers of Midnight, and A Memory of light were written by Jordan, though he refuses to say which parts. Furthermore, A Memory of Light's entire ending was written by Jordan, and I've heard that it was among the first scenes written way back in the eighties. Beyond that, there are significant portions of each book written entirely by jordan, but Sanderson, Harriet and the crew won't say a word until at minimum a few months after A memory of light is released.

 

Source: it's taking too long to find, but I'm paraphrasing sanderson's own words buried in a transcript of a Q&A session around Allow of law's release.

Problem in prologue:

 

Slate is not a suitable material for a spear/lance point. It is VERY friable, and unsuitable for a weapon point.. Chert/Obsidian /flint perhaps. I hope Brandon fixes this up before final publication.

you have to use what you can... if slate is the only thing you have, its better than nothing... tho yes... the other stones make for FAR better weapons... slate might cut once, the others you can reuse... but, id rather have a spear with a 1-use point on it, than nothing :)
