  1. Tor Books has announced it plans to release Warrior of the Altaii, a previously-unpublished fantasy novel by Robert Jordan. The book is currently scheduled for release on October 8, 2019. Publication History Warrior of the Altaii was written before Robert Jordan began The Eye of the World (which was published in 1990). After finishing the manuscript, he received an offer of publication from Donald Wolheim at DAW Books. Jordan responded to the publisher that he was happy to receive such an offer, but wondered if some changes to the contract could be made. The publisher replied
  2. As reported earlier today, Amazon Studios has greenlit the first season of a Wheel of Time TV show. From The Hollywood Reporter: Backstory in Brief The story of getting the book series adapted for the screen has been long and tumultuous. A full history of the franchise's adaptation journey is beyond the scope of this article, but the short version is that the rights to the series were originally optioned by NBC in 2000, then held briefly by an independent group called Forsaken Films. In 2004 the option passed from Forsaken to Red Eagle Entertainment, who held the ri
  3. Rafe Judkins, the showrunner for the potential Wheel of Time TV show, answered an assortment of fan questions on Twitter this morning. You can find the entire thread here. Overall Show Status "In development." Amazon Studios is the network currently developing the show. The production studio is Sony Pictures Television, working with Radar Pictures. There has been no official announcement about the show being green-lit yet. This means that while a lot of people are working on developing ideas and screenplays, until a public announcement happens, we do not know if a pilot or fu

  7. Hi everyone, Dragonmont is about to undergo a major upgrade that will leave the site and forums offline for a couple of days, possibly a week. This upgrade will begin later this week, sometime between Nov 9-11). I don't know how long it will be offline, but I expect it to be no longer than a week. During this time we'll be upgrading every aspect of the website. New forum features, better security, and (finally!) mobile-friendly pages everywhere. If you have any questions about things, email webmaster@dragonmount.com Thanks! Jason
  8. Today, September 19, 2017 marks 19 years of Dragonmount being online. Every year, Jenn and I debate what the exact launch day was, but she’s adamant that Sept 19 is the correct one. I believe her, because, well, one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned over the last 19 years is that I should listen to what Jenn says. So today it is. So what’s happening with DM these days? Well, judging from the slow-moving news on the front page, not a whole lot. But don’t let that fool you. We’re currently working on a major website upgrade: everything from the forums to the news page to the ebo
  9. Wonderful find, qwurp. Congratulations. That's an old signature, too.
  10. Hi everyone, As we gear up for a major website upgrade (including improved forums!), I need to run some occasional tests and take the website down. I will generally try to do this in the evening, after 9 PM U.S. Pacific time, GMT -8 (the time used by the server). During this time the forums and most of the website will be inaccessible. No data will be lost. Everything is backed up on a regular basis. Thanks for your patience. If you have any urgent issues, please email help@dragonmount.com Thanks
  11. Thanks for your donations and support, everyone. Some quick replies: - I've not investigated the coding editor, but if there's a way to keep it, we will. - Yes, Cloudflare is needed for both performance and security. Is there a specific thing it's doing which limits you in in some way? If so, I can investigate. - Killashandra: JordanCon is always looking for volunteers to help out. They would love your assistance. Check out their webpage for more info. If you can't find details, send them an email. Jason
  12. Hello Dragonmount family, I started a giant forum post here but it sorta eveolved into a full-blown GoFundMe campaign. Please follow the link below and consider helping out if you can. You guys mean the world to me and it's difficult for me to ask this. https://www.gofundme.com/dragonmount-year20-upgrade -Jason
  13. Barnes & Noble plans to release a new, leather-bound edition of The Eye of The World. This new edition will be available in stores on September 30th. You can also pre-order a copy online. The Eye of the World--the opening volume of The Wheel of Time saga--joins an impressive list of well-known novels in Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions. The images provided on B&N's website show the spine and cover (shown here), as well as an interior photo and the back cover. The interior looks the same as the editions we're already familiar with from Tor. The back cover includes an error in that the

  15. Thanks everyone. You're all the best-est bunch of fan-friends EVER. (Gah, where did you get that picture of me?) ;-)
  16. Various fans have alerted us to the fact that FX is airing a TV show tomorrow (Monday, Feb 9) called The Wheel of Time: Winter Dragon. Here's what we know: It is our understanding that The Wheel of Time movie and TV rights are currently owned by Red Eagle Entertainment. REE has had these rights for many years. During that time, they've been involved in several significant efforts to produce a feature film or TV show. We've reported on these efforts in the past, and have supported them at various times. (Full disclosure: I was a consultant for them on some of these efforts.) W
  17. Today Tor Books released new information about the Wheel of Time Companion, the upcoming encyclopedia-style supplement to the Wheel of Time series. Here's what we know about the book so far: It will be released in November 2015. It's organized alphabetically, like an encyclopedia, with entries for all 2,000+ named characters in the series. It includes a complete dictionary for the Old Tongue. It includes other information about the characters, history, and world such as the relative strengths for many channelers. It includes new maps and character illustrations (although we are not sure i

  19. Back in 1997, before George R.R. Martin's fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire, had exploded into mainstream popularity, he had one very special fan: Robert Jordan. Jordan had read--A GAME OF THRONES, the first book in Martin's series--end enjoyed it a great deal. He wrote a letter to Martin's publisher requesting a signed copy. Here's a copy of this letter, as obtained by Terez. George Martin has been very open about his admiration and affection for Robert Jordan. In fact, Jordan went on to provide Martin with a quote that the publisher put on the cover of Martin's later books.
  20. Congratulations to Ann Leckie, the author of Ancillary Justice, which won the 2014 Hugo Award for Best Novel. The Hugo Awards are one of the most prominent awards in the Science Fiction and Fantasy community. They are given out annually at the WorldCon convention. The Wheel of Time was honored as one of the five short-listed nominees for the award this year. We’ve posted a lot of information over the past few months about WoT’s eligibility and subsequent nomination. Despite the fact that it didn't win, I believe the series is cementing its legacy as one of the most beloved and important fa
  21. Our friends at the Waygate Foundation have notified us of a charity auction they're hosting to benefit Room to Read, which is a worthy organization helping to promote literacy and gender equality across the world. Up for bid is a unique set of medieval gauntlets, signed by an impressive list of authors and artists. Here are the names: Brandon Sanderson Howard Tayler Michael R Underwood Howard Andrew Jones Tobias Buckell John Klima Pat Rothfuss John Scalzi Courtney Allison Moulton Aimee Carter Kelley Armstrong Saladin Ahmed Jaime Ramsey Matthew Alan Thyer Jacqueline Carey Sandra Taylor Kame
