    The second to last picture ... I see a lone Tower in the middle of the trees ... Tar Valon?? But that stone on the one side of the bridge makes me lean towards it being the world on the other side of a Way-Gate. I dunno.

    There is a tower!  How strange!  Doesn’t look grand enough for the White Tower, but concept art.  

    Maybe their on their way to the blight and those could be one of the guard posts that line the border?  The decay of the forest and trees wouldn’t be seen until past the border.  


    Or if we’re going to deviate enough, that could be one of the seven towers of Malkier!

    Wasn't Thom with the Two Rivers folk when they crossed the Taran? I didn't think of Shadar Logoth! I like it!

    Yes, you are correct!  Thom was with them.  Looking at the picture, it doesn’t appear to be Thom, but concept art doesn’t need to be detailed exactly!  So this could be on their way to Baerlon.

    I've always thought the Eye of the World cover was grossly out of perspective. The rendering of Moraine & Lan make Moraine look like she's 4 feet tall riding a miniature horse. Either that or Lan is 10 feet tall and his horse is 25 hands or more (that translates to over 8 feet at the shoulder)! Oh, and why is Moraine riding side saddle? I don't think I ever read anywhere in the books that she didn't ride astraddle.


    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?

    Any idea when we'll be able to pre-order? I don't see it on Amazon. Definitely anxious for the new cover and particularly the intro by B. Sanderson.

    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!

    Awesome! Just subscribed to this podcast. I almost want to restart my reread and follow this podcast. I'm almost finished with The Shadow Rising, so I am not sure I want to go back and start over again.


    They're recording schedule is pretty fast!  I think they aim for releasing three podcasts a week!  If you go slow, they'll catch up with you in no time!

  6. @TheShadowRises, I had the same initial reaction.  When I finished the novel I was very disappointed.  There have been some people who were less than satisfied with the ending of Brandon's "The Reckoners" series, but I thought that was a justifiable way to conclude.  Not all endings have to be epic with huge battles, etc.  This ending, however, was so, so, so upsetting I was in a daze for a few hours.  UNTIL, I saw the promise of the sixth book.  That eased my suffering greatly.  I can't wait for the final book.  I'm really looking forward to how a new narrator will tell the next set of events!

  7. I think you are right, Joshawewah.


    I love these few chapters for multiple reasons. First, is Thom. It just strikes me as comical to imagine him, all set for an uneventful Bel Tine in the Two Rivers, when all of a sudden an Aes Sedai appears. I laugh thinking of his reaction to that!


    Also, the fever dreams that Tam has are so engrossing! This is when you really get drawn in, seeing there is something deeper at work here--something besides the events on the surface.


    I love The Eye of the World! Such an amazing novel!

  8. The sewing aspect of this is easy, Kronos. It's just stright lines; nothing tricky. The hard part was cutting the strips and making them functional. Because of my awful cut job, the cloak is now frayed to the point where it's unwearable. :( So, my suggestion is to go in with a plan: either know it will take a lot of effort to hem each side of each strip, use Fray Check or some other fabric adhesive, or try another route like using store bought ribbon instead of cut fabric.

  9. Timelord, I have (tentative) plans to make a black Asha'man-like dress/coat. I saw this image that looks amazing for a female Asha'man! I'm very inspired to try to make something similar!




    Having Rand's coat would be amazing too.  (Of course, you can buy a replica if you have the money to spend...).  Do you have pictures of the angreal you made?  Did you use clay or another medium?  I'd love to have more details!


    Thank you, Mynah!  I really loved the way the dress turned out!
