Brandon Sanderson has completed A Memory of Light, the fourteenth and final Wheel of Time novel. He posted a touching blog entry on his website describing his feelings on the subject, as well as his plans for the future.
Brandon has completed and turned in the final major revision of the book to Harriet, Robert Jordan's widow and editor. She and her staff will complete final revisions and copyediting.
The hardcover and audiobook editions are scheduled to be released on January 8, 2013. The eBook will be released on April 9th.
I remember speaking to Brandon almost five years ago by phone. The first time we talked, he sounded excited and a little shell-shocked. He had yet to fly out to Charleston to meet Harriet, so he had no idea what was in store. He'd not read Robert Jordan's ending or other notes. I remember how nervous he was about whether or not Wheel of Time fans would accept him, or support him.
I talked to him again yesterday by phone, and I could hear the relief in his voice. The passion for the final book was still there. He's eager for people to read it, and seemed even more eager to finally be able to share Robert Jordan's final scenes with all of us.
There's no doubt in my mind that all Wheel of Time fans owe an enormous debt of gratidue to Brandon for his hard work in completing the series. Like you, I look forward to reading the book, and look forward to having him be a part of our community for years to come.
