A Memory of Light to be 3 Books

Posted by spragujs on April 17, 2009

First, I strongly recommend reading Brandon Sanderson’s (the author finishing AMoL) explanation of the situation.  After reading that, it’s funny and sad to me that other folks still think it’s all about the money.  Sounds to me like it’s all about the story, and frankly that’s what I care about.  I just have one thing that make me sad about this new development.  Previously Sanderson had talked about AMoL being divided up into two books, which would have put the total at 13.  Considering the significance of the number 13 in the Wheel of Time, I really kind of liked that idea and am sad to have lost it.  Guess I shouldn’t have gotten so attached!

In any case, I’m looking forward to The Gathering Storm coming out November 3 of this year.  If things go as planned and the other two come out in November 2010 and November 2011, I’d say that’s doing pretty well considering how big these books are likely to be.  And I desperately hope I don’t hear bad things about Brandon if/when he starts posting about his work on his own books.  After reading his books I’m almost more excited about any of them than I am AMoL, and I’ve been a WoT fan for a long time.  I really hope people remember that Brandon was an author in his own right before he landed this opportunity.
