A Memory of Light To Be Published 8th January 2013

Well the date for A Memory of Light has been set - and it will be a little later than many thought, but it will allow more time for editing and polishing. It's so typical of the time cycles theme of the series, that the final volume will be published so close to the anniversary date of the publication of the first volume.

The following is TOR's publicity release.

The first novel in Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time®, The Eye of the World, was released on January 15, 1990. Now more than twenty years later, Tor Books is thrilled to announce the official publication date for the final novel in the series. A Memory of Light will release on January 8, 2013, in the final month of the Year of the Dragon.

A Memory of Light is one of the most important titles that Tor will ever publish. Many of the principal players have been involved with the series since its inception, including Publisher Tom Doherty and Editor Harriet McDougal, who worked with Robert Jordan on all of his books, and who is working with Brandon Sanderson, the writer finishing the series from Robert Jordan’s outline and his notes. This is a landmark publication not just for Tor but for millions of fans of the late Robert Jordan, who eagerly await the conclusion to his epic tale. Everyone involved with the project is committed to making this an ending to remember.

Over the next few seasons, Tor will continue to release new Wheel of Time material, including trade paperback editions of the early novels with new art, new graphic novel editions of the The Eye of the World comics, and other material related to A Memory of Light as we get closer to publication date.

What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

Outstanding. Well worth the wait. Have been doing a re-read since the last book and have just re-started Knife of Dreams. This will be one hell of an exclamation point. I grew up with these books. Started when I was 12...I'm in my 30s.
