  1. Over the weekend we reported that the" rel="external nofollow">http://www.dragonmount.com/index.php/News/events/the-wheel-of-time-nominated-for-hugo-award-r752'>the collective Wheel of Time saga has been nominated for the 2013 Best Novel Hugo Award.

  2. We all know that Brandon Sanderson completed The Wheel of Time based off of Robert Jordan's notes. We know that those notes were so extensive that Harriet McDougal, RJ's wife and editor, claimed there were easily more words in the notes than words in all the books. Many of those notes, along with many original items from Robert Jordan's office were donated to The College of Charleston Special Collections department. An entire blog exists to showcase some of the items in that collection. From their website: Recently, our good friend Terez had the opportunity to explore these archives. In
  3. If you're interested in acquiring an autographed copy of A Memory of Light, you can order them through Brandon Sanderson's online store. There's an option to have it simply signed with an autograph only, or to have it personalized with a brief message. Of course another option is to buy or bring a copy to one of the upcoming events that Brandon will be hosting. He begins his 3-week U.S. tour tonight in Provo, Utah. Next month Brandon will attend JordanCon 6, along with fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss.

  5. Harriet McDougal, Robert Jordan's widow and the editor of The Wheel of Time series, recently told Dragonmount that she expects the WoT Encyclopedia to be handed into Tor Books for publication later than originally expected. While attending the first annual JordanCon In 2009, Harriet said that she was under contract with Tor to create an Encyclopedia which described the world, its characters, and its history in greater detail (!). Also likely to be included are things like ranking lists of channelers, and rosters of Aes Sedai Ajahs. Harriet also said that the Encyclopedia was due to be han
  6. A few weeks ago, a group of Utah Filmmakers called Wheel of 9 Productions released a Wheel of Time fan film called Flight From Shadow. The 20-minute film is based on the chapter from The Eye of the World entitled Four Kings in Shadow. It features a strong cast of actors, strong visual effects, and outstanding costume and production design. While some aspects of the movie deviated slightly from the books, there's no denying that the film was crafted with a loving hand by a group of fans who cared deeply for Robert Jordan's work. Some of the Dragonmount staff has had a chance to me
  7. This morning Brandon Sanderson launched a new page on his website discussing the process of creating the final three Wheel of Time novels: The Gathering Storm, Towers of Midnight, and A Memory of Light. The page is intended to be the first in an on-going series of articles chronicling some of the lessons and discoveries he made while writing these books. But Brandon said that a lot of details about why he made certain decisions will have to wait before being shared with us: Head over to his website and enjoy some of his insights about reading Robert Jordan's notes for the first t
  8. I'm immune to your threats. You cannot hurt me. I own this place. Chop all your want, my neck is iron. But if you must execute somebody for my crimes...take Barm instead. You can have him
  9. *stumbles in drunk, shirt untucked, holding a bottle of whiskey* I hear Jenn's on trial. Is it too late to chop off her head? I know 3 facts, 2 of which are true: I taught Kathana how to drive Jimmy once defeated me in a sword duel for her hand in marriage I appointed her Amyrlin Seat of the White Tower on Day 2 of Dragonmount's opening after she sent me a funny fan fiction story. Oh, and 15 years later, people STILL think we're married. *shakes fist at Jimmy*

  12. Dun dun dun dun! NFL Football season is here. I don't know about you, but I'm a huge football fan. (Sorry overseas people, I mean American Football, not "soccer") If you follow my personal twitter account ([twitter]jasondenzel[/twitter]), you may know I'm a huge San Francisco 49er fan. I was talking smack on twitter the other day when I jokingly told another WoT fan that Colin Kaepernick was the NFL's version of the Dragon Reborn: Same height, same weight, muscular, mixed parentage, arm tattoos, incredibly talented beyond most QB's (including many star veterans), and has had a meteoric r
  13. Oops. Made a mistake with the store. It should all be fixed now.
  14. On June 25, a short story called River of Souls will be published in the Unfettered anthology from Grim Oak Press. Unfettered is a collection of short stories from some of today's best fantasy writers including Patrick Rothfuss, Terry Brooks, Tad Williams, Naomi Novik, Peter Orullian, Lev Grossman and more. It's edited by Shawn Speakman, an up-and-coming writer and cancer survivor who is raising funds through sales of this book to help pay for his medical treatments. If you don't want to know anything more, you can go the Grim Oak Press website and order your copy. You can also pre-order the

  17. At JordanCon V, I had the distinct privilege to purchase one of Michael Whelan's original concept paintings for A Memory of Light. The story behind is this image is that it’s one of several concepts that Michael provided to Tor Books. From what I understand, this particular painting was one of the top choices to become the actual book cover, but the publisher wanted an image which included the lunar eclipse. If this image had been selected, Michael would have re-painted it, and added a significant amount of more detail. The painting depicts Rand, holding Callandor, outside the cave at S
  18. Earlier this month we posted on Facebook about 16-year-old Ben Wolverton, son of fantasy author David Wolverton (aka David Farland). Ben was in a terrible long boarding accident which left him with severe brain trauma and other serious injuries. Unfortunately his family doesn't have health insurance and the medical bills are stacking up. Dragonmount, along with several other websites and authors, are trying to spread the word about ways you can help Ben and his family. Please join us in contributing in one or more ways.
