  1. Recently, the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America (ABAA) compiled a detailed list of all The Wheel of Time related material it’s possible to own. The list contains many items most fans have heard of—the soundtrack, the comic books, the calendars—and plenty I own myself. However, it also highlights more obscure items, like a poster and program showing Robert Jordan’s permeant display at Daniel Library of The Citadel, or a custom embossed stamp used to denote Jordan’s own books within his library, or a copy of The Fires of Heaven where the dust jacket proclaims the Amyrlin is named “Flaida” instead of Elaida. Not to mention all the foreign-translated novels and the amazing covers they have. The article also speculates about re-releasing the novels with new cover art when the television series kicks off. For the avid fan, there’s plenty to collect. And hopefully, with a television series coming soon, there’ll be even more. View full news item

  3. New "Mistborn Spoilers" Podcast

    Our friends at the Wheel of Time Spoilers podcast have a new project in the works: Mistborn Spoilers. Following the same format, Patrick and Seth scrutinize Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn series—one chapter at a time—and discuss all the nitty-gritty details, backstories, foreshadowing, and wonders that make up this fantastic series. The first three episodes focused on the background information needed to comprehend the world, the Lord Ruler, and the current life of the people. After that, they delve right into the books. I was very pleased when Seth and Patrick allowed me to be a guest host for the Prologue and Chapter 1 episodes. I’m a huge fan of Brandon Sanderson, and the Mistborn series is at the top of my favorite works by him. That doesn’t mean the books are flawless. I’m very quick to point out the under presentation of women in this first novel, and the over-dependence on using rape as a plot device. That said, I do love this book, and I love these characters, and I was happy to be able to discuss them with others who are so knowledgeable. Patrick and Seth currently record Mistborn Spoilers on Monday, and for a $1 Patreon donation, you can listen live while they record! The back and forth dialogue with devoted fans adds a lot to the quality of the show, one of the reasons why both these podcasts are so popular!

  5. Congrats, Leyrann! That's such a great accomplishment! Please keep us posted on your progress and any other writing you're working on! As far as your Discord guild, how's that work? I belong to a few Facebook groups, and a few chat groups. So is the Discord guild like a mix between the two?

    Sorry we didn't have more drawers! That would have made it funnier. *lol*
  7. Join the ACW Tuatha'an Camp

    It's on our end, @haycraftd. It can take a few days for the admins to get your status changed. I'll double check that the request has been sent, though.
  8. [GotAK] Greatest Pet Poll

    And the winner of the Best Pet poll is:
  9. [GotAK] Animal Pictionary

  10. [GotAK] Animal Pictionary

    *lol* No guessers on the last one? It was a meerkat. A very poorly drawn meerkat! With that, our game is officially over! Thank you all for playing! The winner, with 4 points, was @JamesBrown. Siggie coming soon!
  11. [GotAK] Guess the Animal

    That was a lot of fun! Thanks, James!
  12. [GotAK] Animal Pictionary

    Here’s a hint: it’s not a monkey.

    HA! Sorry my drawing was so bad you couldn't even recognize your own pet.... The next one is:
  14. [GotAK] Dogs

    It's pretty easy to read my doggies' body language. They both have quirks that let me know what it is they need. My girl, Friday, will bob her head up and down when she wants to go to the bathroom outside. My boy, Mr. Smith, will lick the inside of his leg if he's agitated. I can tell what they need 90% of the time. Plus, they're predictable.
  15. [GotAK] Animal Bingo

    *LOL* I didn't even have this one, and I wish I did!
