Robert Jordan Wheel of Time

For anyone who missed the news, it was reported recently that Amazon has ordered The Wheel of Time, a new series based on the Robert Jordan book series of the same name.

While exciting news for fans, they will no doubt take it with a massive grain of salt. Adaptations of Jordan’s book series have been in the works for a very long time, including a movie adaptation at Universal a decade ago. But things haven’t worked out, for a variety of reasons including legal complications. Will this be the one?

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.

‘Wheel Of Time’ TV Pilot ‘Winter Dragon’ Airs On FXX In Secret; Episode Now Online

Wheel Of Time Robert Jordan

As a shock to nearly everyone, a pilot episode for Winter Dragon, a potential TV series based on the epic Wheel Of Time fantasy novels by the late Robert Jordan, aired on FXX in the early morning hours today and is now online (watch it here below).

With no promotions or warnings, viewers who caught the 30-minute pilot on FXX in the middle of the night were surprised that such a series existed and that it was debuting, including Robert Jordan’s Estate, which made a statement that the project was done without their knowledge or involvement.

It turns out, the pilot, which starred Billy Zane, is not an FXX series. It aired on the network in a paid spot — kind of like the way an infomerical does — purchased by Red Eagle Entertainment, the pilot’s producers who needed to get it on the air.

Eye of the World - Wheel of Time

Amazon is currently running a special on The Eye of the World ebook for the Kindle for only $2.99.

Originally released in 1990, The Eye of the World is the first installment in Robert Jordan‘s lengthy and awesome Wheel of Time book series.

I’m not sure how long this deal with last, so I highly recommend grabbing it while it’s greatly reduced. Wheel of Time is one of my favorite fantasy series and with a price like this, even though I own two copies of the book already, I’m going to get in on this deal too. Text-to-Speech is enabled for this ebook, which is a bonus — either listen along as you read or do what I do and just listen while you exercise. And it’s like a 1,000 pages long, so you get a lot for three bucks.

If you’d like to own a physical copy of The Eye of the World, the book is also available in paperback for only $6.99. The paperback edition is currently part of Amazon’s 4-for-3 promotion, where you can purchase four select items for the price of three (see the Special Offers and Product Promotions section of the product page).

Comic Review: Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time: The Eye of the World #4

Wheel of Time #4Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time: The Eye of the World #4
Written by Robert Jordan
Script by Chuck Dixon
Art by Chase Conley
Colors by Nicolas Chapuis
Letters by Bill Tortolini
Published by Dynamite Entertainment
Price $3.99
Release date: August 11, 2010

We may be only a few months away from a new Wheel of Time book, but if you’re like me, you’re always looking for an excuse to re-read the earlier books in the series. Dynamite Entertainment has been giving us just that excuse with their translation of the first book in the series, The Eye of the World, into comic form. Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time: The Eye of the World #4 continues the story, with this issue covering chapter 7 of the original novel.

Now, I’m not what you would call the biggest fan of adapted works, but this one has been very decent so far. One thing you can say for it is that it is a direct adaptation that doesn’t stray from the source material. All of the dialogue is straight out of the book, and the plot follows along without any surprises. Chuck Dixon has done his job to translate the book from the written page to the comic. Dixon is able to make the story flow on the page, without making it feel too dry or wordy. Having read the source material so many times, I almost wish there was at least some differences, nothing major, but a nice side plot or something would be okay.

I know I’m not the only one looking forward to the October 27, 2009 release date of The Gathering Storm, the first posthumous novel in Robert Jordan’s massive Wheel of Time series (the book was co-written by Brandon Sanderson).

On this day, the second anniversary of the author’s death, Tor Books has blessed us by releasing the first chapter of The Gathering Storm on their webpage. If you go to Tor.com and register (registering is free), you too can read the first chapter.

The chapter, titled “Tears of Steel,” starts as every other Wheel of Time book begins, with the familiar phrase “The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again.”
