  1. This #WoTWednesday had some major announcements. First, the @WoTonPrime book club concluded its read of The Eye of the World. This introduced so many new readers to this wonderful series we know and love. Our fandom is growing! The book club doesn’t currently have plans to start The Great Hunt, but we hope they will continue with this as the Amazon Prime show gets closer to completion. To celebrate reaching the end of The Eye of the World, @WoTonPrime rewarded us with this snippet of a video, starting on the excerpt from The Eye of the World where it introduces the Winespring Inn, then we get our first real look at the epicenter of Emond’s Field. Rafe Judkins also joined the celebration on Twitter and agreed to answer the first three questions about the Winspring Inn. “To celebrate @WOTonPrime‘s first glimpse of the Winespring, I’ll answer the first three questions I get about it on here. Go :)” The first question focused on the smell: Q: “Does it smell like honey cakes and fresh bread?” A: “It mostly smells like ginger tea, which anyone who’s spent time on the WoT set would tell you ha. But there were honeycakes that the wasps and hornets couldn’t get enough of. So we had to spray them with a wasp repellent, but they didn’t tell me and I ate one.” Hopefully eating wasp repellent isn’t harmful to humans…. The second question makes all of us long to be on the set. Q: “What were your thoughts walking through it the first time” A: “Absolutely one of the most emotional moments on the show for me so far. Just standing in the center of Emond’s Field felt totally surreal, looking up at the red roof of the Inn, the trouble they’d gone to give each house and villager a profession and a life there. It was amazing” I cannot want to see more of Emond’s Field! These answers from Rafe makes it much more real and closer than ever to being a finished product. The last one may spark some interesting speculation. Q: “Do we see the bel tine celebration?” A: “This one might be a spoiler, especially for Winternight enthusiasts, but yes.” Wow! We all know that Bel Tine was ruined by the Trolloc attack. If the attack doesn’t happen on Winternight, when will it happen? During the Bel Tine celebration? If so, do we get to see Tam’s fever dream? Will we not be aware Rand is adopted right from the start? Will we still see Narg—the most intelligent Trolloc—trying to reason with Rand about going to the Myrddraal? So many things to think about just on one sentence! It was a great #WoTWednesday. Let us know when you think the Trolloc attack will come in the comments below!

  3. This past weekend, Dragon Con celebrated all the things we love in fandom. The convention went online rather than in person, and that gave many people who can’t make the trek to Atlanta, Georgia the opportunity to see what this fantastic con has to offer. There were quite a few Wheel of Time themed panels throughout the event—not surprising with all the recent updates with the Amazon Prime television show. Jason Denzel, Jennifer Liang, and Thom DeSimone had a speculation hour in the “DragonCon High Fantasy Track Presents Wheel of Time TV Show Speculation.” The topics ranged from how many of the novels will be included in the first season, to how well established the Wheel of Time fandom is to judge the show’s worth, to the maturity rating the show will receive. You can check out all the speculations here! Did you know The Eye of the World celebrated its 30th anniversary? (You should, because we talked about it here, and here, and here…) And, what every Wheel of Time anniversary celebration needs is an appearance by Brandon Sanderson! And for an added bonus, Dr. Michael Livingston joined in too! The panel “DragonCon High Fantasy Presents Wheel of Time 30th Anniversary” delved into what makes this series timeless and so beloved by fans. You can join in all the festivities, even after the fact, by watching the video below. It’s been a sad year for convention goers, but I’m so happy that every effort is being made to keep some of these events going. We’re making the most of a bad situation, and this little taste of home, friends, and family can go a long way to making us feel not so isolated right now. View full news item

  5. Amazon Prime's Wheel of Time television show had some major announcements for #WoTWednesday today! Kae Alexander as Min Farshaw Sophie Okonedo as Siuan Sanche Kae Alexander is a BAFTA elevate actress. Kae recently filmed action feature INFINITE for Paramount Pictures and the MALEFICENT sequel for Walt Disney Pictures. Other recent credits include Fox thriller DEEP STATE, THE GREAT WAVE directed by Indhu Rubasingham for the National Theatre, ITV/Amazon thriller STRANGERS for Two Brothers Pictures, 4 part series COLLATERAL written by David Hare and directed by SJ Clarkson for BBC / Netflix, BBC crime thriller HARD SUN, Reb in Steven Spielberg's READY PLAYER ONE and Elaine in Phoebe Waller-Bridge's comedy FLEABAG. Sophie Okonedo's credentials are too long to list here, so we'll name a few. Sophie began her film career in 1991 in the British coming-of-age drama YOUNG SOUL REBEL before appearing as Wachati Princess in ACE VENTURA: WHEN NATURE CALLS (1995) and Stephen Frears' DIRTY PRETTY THINGS (2002). She received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Tatiana Rusesabagina in the 2004 film HOTEL RWANDA. Sophie also received a Golden Globe nomination for the miniseries TSUNAMI: THE AFTERMATH (2006) and BAFTA TV Award nominations for the drama series CRIMINAL JUSTICE (2009). We are so excited to have these actresses join the Wheel of Time family! Today, three other cast members were officially announced. We already knew they were involved, but it's nice to have it official. Kate Fleetwood as Liandrin Guirale Peter Franzen as Stepin Clare Perkins as Kerene Nagashi Kate Fleetwood is a Tony and Olivier nominated actress with a storied career on stage. Her extensive screen credits include leading roles in Harlots (Hulu/ BBC), Brave New World (Peacock), Fate: The Winx Saga (Netflix), Victoria (ITV / PBC Masterpiece) and Macbeth (PBS). Kate’s film work includes Les Miserables, Beiruit, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Peter Franzén is one of Finland’s most accomplished actors and has enjoyed a successful career both nationally and internationally. Franzén’s career has spanned 20 years and includes over 90 movies and series in several countries- in English, Finnish, Swedish, Russian, Estonian speaking productions. He has been awarded three Jussi Awards (Finland’s Academy awards) and a total of seven nominations. He has also received awards from international film festivals. London born and raised and graduate of Rose Bruford College, CLARE PERKINS' is a British actress with almost 30 years in the business. Having performed at some of the most prestigious London theatres such as the Almeida Theatre, Donmar Warehouse, Hampstead Theatre, Royal Court Theatre and the Gielgud Theatre, Clare has more recently been making a name for herself on screen, soon to be seen in Netflix crime drama, YOUNG WALLANDER. She will also star in series 4 of popular Netflix series, THE CROWN and the second series of comedy drama FLACK with Anna Paquin. Things are starting to come together. Perhaps a ta'veren is involved. We don't see Siuan in the series until the start of The Great Hunt. Is the fact Sophie Okonedo's been cast now a sign Siuan will pop up earlier than expected? Let us know what you think in the comments below. View full news item

  7. Those are adorable, @LilyElizabeth! And not embarrassing at all! *lol*
  8. Oh, this looks fun! @ATuckerMorin, let us know if you want us to post here or send you a PM with our guesses!
  9. Oh no! The link doesn't work! So if you want to do a new puzzle online, you may do so as long as you screenshot me the correct solution!
  10. I discovered the reverse word search at the end of the school year when I was looking into leading a summer school course based on logic games and puzzles for my elementary students. They are amazingly fun and addictive! The point is to get a mostly blank word search with the terms written on the side of the puzzle. You need to get all the words into the blank spaces in the puzzle! Sounds hard, but math is your friend. Those long words can only fit a few places. So here's the puzzle in jpeg format, but I've also included the link to try it online if you prefer. Take a screenshot of your finished puzzle to win! https://rws.puzzlebaron.com/play.php
  11. This is a topic I find hilarious--though many might think it annoying. I am the biggest fan of terms of endearment. I call my husband, my dogs, my sister, and many of my friends by silly, affectionate words. Sometimes it's just a nickname based on their real name. Like my husband's name is Jeremy and I'll call him Jem. Or my doggos are Friday and Mr. Smith, which turns into Friday Fritters and Smitter Mitter. *collect groan from the readers* Yes, I'm afraid to admit my terms of endearment get even worse than the above examples. Jeremy may also be called "hunny bunny pop" sometimes. So, let's hear the worst you have. Share the terms of endearment you use on your friends and family members!
  12. The latest casting announcement for the Amazon Prime Wheel of Time television show has been announced. Darryl McCormack as Aram Maria Doyle Kennedy as Ila Narinder Samra as Raen These new announcements shouldn't come as any real shocker. Darryl McCormack and Maria Doyle Kennedy were introduced as characters ages ago. Many speculated that Darryl McCormack could be Aram, but most thought Maria Doyle Kennedy was sure to play an Aes Sedai. It's nice to finally have confirmation for these two characters, and the addition of Narinder Samra as Raen. I personally love the idea of the Tuatha'an within the series. Their way of life is simplistic and idealistic. But like Perrin, I agree it's not really applicable in society. Still, I cannot wait to see the Tinkers on the screen. Perhaps the show will even give more closure for their society than what we received in the novels. Maybe they'll find their song. You can check out the latest edition of The Wheel of Time Community Show where Thom gives you all the details you'll need about our beloved Tinkers. Did anyone anticipate Maria Doyle Kennedy as Ira? Let us know in the comments! View full news item

  14. The latest casting announcement for the Amazon Prime Wheel of Time television show has been announced. Darren Clarke as Basel Gill Basel Gill plays an important role in reuniting our beloved Two Rivers characters, and this announcement could mean we're getting closer to the in-book scenes in Caemlyn. Will Elyane be revealed next? Or maybe Morgase? Gareth Bryne? Maybe Elaida? Or is this an indication that Master Gill's character is changing or evolving from his role in the books? The Twitter feed for @WOTonPrime seems to be aligning their announcements with what's happening in the books--based on the #TwitterofTime book club reading of The Eye of the World. If we get this information when Basel isn't even mentioned (they read chapters 19-22 this week), it could be foreshadowing about changes to the storyline. What do you think? Is the Two Rivers group heading to Caemlyn? Or will Basel Gill appear elsewhere? Let us know what you think in the comments below! View full news item

  16. 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!
  17. 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?
  18. 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!
  19. 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.

  21. 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!

  23. @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/
  24. 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....
  25. 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!
