Robert Jordan Wheel of Time

Years ago, I started reading a little series from an author that had previously written some of my favorite post-Robert E. Howard Conan novels. The premise was a simple one, but as I read further into the books, they became far more intricate and seemed to expand beyond my wildest dreams. I speak, of course, of Robert Jordan‘s The Wheel Of Time series.

A Memory of Light

If you’ve been waiting for a release date for the final volume of the popular fantasy series, Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time, your waiting has come to an end. Tor Books, the publisher of the series, has revealed that A Memory of Light will be released on January 8, 2013. The last book in the series is written by Brandon Sanderson, working from extensive notes, outlines, and some finished script by original series writer Robert Jordan. This final novel brings the series to an end almost 23 years after the first volume, The Eye of the World, was released on January 15, 1990.

The Wheel of Time is one of the most popular fantasy series of the last quarter century, with thirteen novels and more than 44 million copies sold. The series has spawned a prequel novel, a comic book series, role-playing games, and a host of other merchandise, as well as a rabid fan base who have been waiting for decades to read the end of the saga.

Top 10 Urban Fantasy and Horror Books of 2010

Top 10 Urban Fantasy Books of 2010

Tough chicks who kick butt. The continued popularity explosion of paranormal YA. Male wizards. Hard-boiled detective stories with fantasy settings. These were the most dominant urban fantasy trends this year, and they’ll continue well into 2011.

Standouts include J.L. Bryan’s Jenny Pox about a girl who kills people with her touch. It’s a welcome change from the emo, vegetarian vampires that populate YA novels; highly recommended reading. Brandon Sanderson and Paul Hoffman showed us the darker side of epic fantasy, while Jocelynn Drake and Kelly Meding proved that their female protagonists kick just as much butt as the boys do. Thomas Sniegoski sent us on another adventure with angel-turned-human PI, Remy Chandler, and Joe Hill gave us another compelling protagonist with Ig, a human who grows horns.

My top pick, as with 2009, goes to Kill the Dead, the second volume in the Sandman Slim series. We continued Jimmy Stark’s foray into the gritty, noir-inspired Los Angeles of Kadrey’s fashioning, and this book featured a fantastic, Gaiman-esque interpretation of Lucifer. Let’s hope that the forthcoming title, Aloha from Hell, is even better.

Here’s my picks for the Top 10 Urban Fantasy and Horror Books of 2010.
