  1. I think one thing that people miss from Jordan's "The Wheel of Time" series is the intentional flaws in the women and the men to show the need to work together to restore balance in an imbalanced world. Sure, he turns power dynamics on their head, but at the end of the day, the sexism, racism, classism, and many other examples of imbalance in "The Wheel of Time" are intentionally plotted out. Those who get "the lesson" change in the story and begin to work together by the end to defeat the greater foe.

  2. I'm not sure who is active in this group, but we have a fan and cosplay The Band of the Red Hand on Facebook. I'm sharing here, because I think it's fair since we shared the Dragonmount post there or let Rebecca share it. https://www.facebook.com/groups/407484983347169/?fref=nf We also have a "The Band of the Red Hand" YouTube in the works.

The UK covers are boring. There is nothing to them. For me they're designed like self-published covers I've seen, simple, because they can't afford an artist. Sweet's covers have landscape, characters and a scene depicted. The Eye of the World stands out as one of my favorite fantasy covers of all time. It's too bad Tor didn't realize how great they are for the most part. A few of the later
