Wheel of Time News

Last week, Rafe was meeting with writers to staff the shows Writers Room, and it looks like he hired some of them! Sarah Nakamura, Rafe's LA based book expert, had the following to say on Twitter:


Next step, lock them in a room for a few months! That or go on mystery trips to exotic locations, and call it team building or a writers retreat😉. Hopefully one of the upcoming November #WoTWednesdays, will be a photo of a room with writers in it!

Sarah also shared some titbits about her role in the shows development, in one of the Wheel of Time Facebook groups: 





Some interesting insight on her role, and should be INO, some comfort for those worried about the adaptation. No doubt Narg makes Sarah bite her tongue a lot...Narg suggests investing in a mouth guard.😄

There's a new Podcast on the block, The Black Tower has gone live!

The Black Tower: A Wheel of Time Podcast

The first episode is "Sexism in the Wheel of Time?", here's the blurb:
It's our first episode, we talk about the gender dynamics in Wheel of Time. Drinks are had and Andrew confuses the Sea Folk with the Seanchan. We are handing out opinions like we're Oprah.
The Great American Read has finished, and The Wheel of Time came in at #62 out of 100. Not to bad considering A Song of Ice and Fire came in at #48, and that's with the help of having the most watched Drama show on TV(it's even listed as Game of Thrones). You can see the full rankings >HERE<.

Tor's reread of The Great Hunt is up to Part 13: Nynaeve Confronts Her Fear
Halloween is fast approaching, so it feels appropriate that this week’s Reading The Great Hunt post is number thirteen. Since I was born on a Friday the 13th, I always enjoy the spooky dates, and consider thirteen a lucky number. But while it’s lucky for me, it’s less lucky for Nynaeve, who is really getting put through the wringer this week—or rather, through the ter’angreal. I originally intended to cover both chapters 23 and 24 this round, but after I finished my analysis of Nynaeve’s experience, I found that it was quite long enough (and dense enough) to be a whole post all on its own.
Speaking of Halloween, It's time to carve your WoT pumpkins!


If you make a mess of your pumpkin...Just call it Olver...
