The title of the prologue is "Distinctions". Here's the story description:
In the prologue, titled “Distinctions,” Lan Mandragoran rides on toward death; Perrin Aybara, Lord Goldeneyes, has a disturbing dream; Galad leads the Whitecloaks into harm’s way; one who has left humanity behind creeps through the Blight; and the Blight border faces invasion.
The prologue will be available in ebook format and available for all the major readers. The cost is $2.99 US.
Towers of Midnight will be released on November 2, 2010. Please continue to check back to our website for regular updated related to this novel. In the first week of September, Tor Books and Dragonmount will release a special video "book trailer". We will have full coverage of that as we get closer.
In addition to the ebook prologue, it is likely that Tor.com will release several other free chapters to Towers of Midnight. This is just speculation based on what they've done for past books.
