WoT release date
« on: June 06, 2011, 03:34:07 PM »
Does anyone know if the release date for the next and last Wheel of Time book has been pushed back?

From everythign i've heard it was planned around november this year, however he does not seem as far along in the first draft as he was for past november'ish releases at this time. 

Has anyone heard a different date?

Thanks,

andygal

Spring next year is what I heard.

The November estimation is outdated - Brandon decided to re-read the entire series to make sure he doesn't miss anything while writing; that added several months to the estimation. New best guess is indeed spring next year sometime.

At the London signing this last weekend he said that it'll probably be anywhere from March to November of 2012.  Harriet wants more time to edit the entire final draft and Brandon needs more time for his re-read.

I thought that was the schedule for a while now... this year it's Alloy of Law (and I thought The Rithmatist, though I haven't heard squat on it lately), next year it's the final WoT, then in 2013 we get back to Stormlight.

Every year we get a book. If he can keep that up, he's doing better than most.

And lest WoT fans get antsy because other books are coming out this year, Alloy of Law was a book he wrote on his vacation, and so far as I know, The Rithmatist isn't changing a lot from its original form so it's a trunk novel. Either way he was going to do a re-read of the series, and it's not surprising that Harriet wants a deep edit. It's the last book folks, they want to make it awesome.

If I can suffer Butcher delaying the next Dresden novel (especially after that cliffhanger, DAMN YOU JIM BUTCHER!!), then Wot fans can suffer a similar delay for the final novel in an epic journey. I trust it'll be worth it.

Now I officially can NOT wait 'till next year. Or the year after.
Nothing is ever easy...

The Rithmatist comes in 2012 and Brandon does need to do a solid rewrite.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Thanks all, been a little out of the loop lately.   Can't say i'm happy with the delay, but given how good his 2 WoT books have been I'm sure it will be worth the wait.  Not to mention giving me more time for my own WoT re-read.

There we go, then. I liked it as it was, so I expect it'll just get better.

Okay, so we know that the next three books are Alloy of Law, Rithmatist, and Memory of Light.  Any information on when other books will be coming out?

For reference, I've got a list of possible future publications put together here:
