One new and three updated essays.


By Linda

At JordanCon last month, I gave a presentation on Wheel of Time eschatology or end-times. I wrote a long essay on this subject years ago, but put off updating it until the Companion had been published and I had studied Robert Jordan’s notes. Doing a presentation on end-times was, at least in part, intended to push me into rewriting the essay. I knew it would be a big job, and in fact, it took a few months, during which I wrote a new essay on Wheel of Time theology, as well as the updated essay on End-times. The Time of Illusions and Aelfinn and Eelfinn articles also were updated as part of the work on the theology essays.

This brings the list of updated articles so far to:

This is the most wonderful project. I love how detailed and comprehensive each and every post is, it really does justice to the material and to Mr Jordans legacy.

Who would I talk to about obtaining permission to put the essays into a book for private use? I like read them before going to bed, but would like to have them bound into a book rather than on my phone.

Thank you, I am glad the blog is appreciated. I grant permission for you to print off my essays for your private use only. Please credit me if you use them in further studies.

Thank you for all your hard work. Who made the maps that are shown in some of the posts? I'd be interested to see more. The level of detail involved makes me believe the project must have been wider than only the few small areas shown here. Will you please let me know how to find them? Thanks again!
