  1. Amazon Prime announced today, via social media, the casting of three actors for The Wheel of Time TV show. Jennifer Preston as Mistress Grinwell Pasha Bocarie as Master Grinwell Izuka Hoyle as Dana There’s already been some debate on who Dana might be. Listed with Mistress and Master Grinwell, logic would say she’s Else Grinwell but with a different name (we already have two major characters with E names—Egwene and Elayne—so this change might be to cause less confusion for TV viewers). There’s also Dena—Thom’s apprentice in The Great Hunt. It seems too early to have her appearing, though. But in the world of cinematic storytelling, who know! Let us know who you think Dana might be in the comments below!
  2. I think the covers were always done as a loose interpretation of what's actually going on (like there's more people in the party of Two Rivers folk than there really were traveling with Moiraine). But for me, this cover has always been amazingly cool! Perhaps the size (or shortness) of Moiraine is emphasized, but that doesn't bother me. Or maybe Mandarb is 25 hands?
  3. It varies how soon books are available for pre-order, but the metallic cover edition will be published in October, so maybe by the end of the summer. We’ll give an announcement when the pre-order is available!
  4. This year, The Eye of the World celebrated its 30th anniversary. To commemorate this special occasion Tor Books is releasing a new hardcover and paperback versions of The Eye of the World as well as a new paperback cover for New Spring. The 30th anniversary The Eye of the World hardcover will be published October 6th, 2020. This amazing cover has metallic binding. It will include a new introduction written by Brandon Sanderson. The Eye of the World’s official birthday was January 15th, 1990, and the Wheel of Time Community Show did celebrate this milestone earlier this year. The new paperback version is the first time The Eye of the World will be released in the trade paperback size. The artwork will feature the original image of Moiraine, Lan, and Rand drawn by Darrell K. Sweet, but in a format similar to the other trade paperbacks in the series. The publication date for this version will be August 4th, 2020. Another first, New Spring, the prequel to the series, will also be released in trade paperback. The cover will feature artwork by Jason Chan, showing the moment Moiraine bonds Lan as her warder. The publication date will be August 18th, 2020. Fans have wanted these two books in trade paperback for some time. With these additions, our bookshelves will be complete! You can watch Ebony go over the details in the latest episode of the Wheel of Time Community Show! So, are you as anxious as I am to get the metallic cover? Let us know in the comments.

  6. Welcome back to Community Round-Up, a look at all the happenings within the Wheel of Time fandom and the larger sci-fi/fantasy community. First off TorCon is happening online this week! Tor Books teamed up with Den of Geeks to bring a virtual convention with amazing panels. TorCon kicks off Thursday June 11th with Brandon Sanderson talking about his latest projects! This is a prerecorded event and only available this weekend. You can register for this event here, or see what else TorCon has to offer! Sticking with the Brandon Sanderson theme, you can now take an official quiz to find out which order of Knights Radiant you would be. The Knights Radiant are a group of fighters in the Stormlight Archive series. Each order focuses on different missions, skills and bindings, and they also bond different spren. I tied for Truthwatcher and Windrunner, which sums up my personality perfectly. The Dusty Wheel interviewed Joshua Stolarz, a cartographer, and Joshua shared an amazing drawing of the Two Rivers. You can download Joshua’s map here. I cannot get enough of these sword dances. When thinking about the Amazon Prime show and how some of the sword forms will be shown, I imagine over-the-top stylized fights. Here is a video posted by Stance on Facebook, from Taipei, Taiwan. As always, let’s end with some of the best memes I can find on the internet. While I love Nynaeve's character and her growth throughout the series (and getting over ingrained prejudices), I'm sure the draw One Power was also a factor in her change of view. The evolution of the Aiel (as seen through the flashbacks from the ter'angreal in Rhuidean) is one of my favorite in the series. It's amazing how just a small step each generation can change a whole belief system. While this might seem true on the surface, the Two Rivers folk do have the necessary courage to fight for the Light when it matters! That's all for this edition. Which Order of the Knights Radiant were you? Let us know in the comments!

  8. @Dice since they still have more covers to complete, I'm sure Mah'alleinir will be featured! @ElleKayEm here's a like to the French website for the first book in the series, but I didn't see anything that jumped out that looked like a cover designer. https://www.bragelonne.fr/catalogue/9791028102586-loeil-du-monde-premiere-partie/
  9. Mashi, Head of the White Ajah. I'm so sad by everything and I'm crying all the time. The world's current struggles are so overwhelming and my own emotional state is so unstable. I escape to Animal Crossing, but I'm not sure that's a healthy response to this....
  10. Yay, I'm so glad the Blues are having a Pride celebration! I will definitely join in! One of my favorite series is the Whyborne and Griffin series written by Jordan L Hawk (a trans man). Hawk's series is about a gay scholar who falls in love with a bisexual detective and they solve crimes in Widdershins--a very creepy city. The whole series is 11 books long (as well as a few novellas and spin offs, one following Whyborne's sister who falls in love with his secretary). They're fantastically written and I love the mix of magic and romance!
  11. I know when I stopped eating process foods for about three months, I felt the best I ever have in my whole life. And I've been a vegetarian for about a year and a half. I'll check it out, Rhea!
  12. Liitha sent me the correct response! But don't worry; if you still want to try, PM me!
  13. Gil Glabbers has lived on the coast of Guernsey, in the English Channel, for more than a decade. In that time he's found a number of difference "messages in a bottle" washed up on his beach. Using only the clues below, match each bottle to its author, place of origin and the year in which it was written, and determine the year in which Gil discovered each one. PM me with your answers!
  14. The perks of being a teacher means two months off over the summer! LOL Actually I'm going to teach summer school for two weeks this month, so I'm not entirely "on vacation." Sometimes it is nice when things are quiet, and sometimes it's nice when there's noise. Balance is the key. Hahaha
  15. Pride is a time for LGBTQ+ people and allies to celebrate. June 28th marks the anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in New York. The Library of Congress states: With our country in such turmoil, all Pride events have been canceled or moved to an online format. GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Deformation) has a master list of online events here! Visibility of LGBTQ+ people is the focus of Pride. There is a great diversity in our world, and people have a right to be different without being afraid. Let's celebrate our differences and not let hate stand in our way! Personally, I am bisexual. Though it seems that since I'm in a heterosexual relationship and married that people will assume I'm straight. This is not always the case. We shouldn't ever assume anything about a person's sexuality or identity. I am also a published author with several LGBTQ+ novels. I love the idea that love wins, and when I write stories featuring LGBTQ+ characters, I always want a happy ending. So come celebrate Pride with me! Anyone is able to join in this discussion. But this is a time to stress if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
