New Editions for Wheel of Time

It's not exactly new news, but The Wheel of Time series is being re-released in paperback.

Some of the covers are better than Darrell K. Sweet's art, some are worse, but the series will be re-issued. Heck, some of the books already have been.

They are in paperback (trade actually, the size is between 'mass market' and...well, the one that is the same size of  hardcover but paperback instead.) The books 'open' better, are larger (which is good for the maps etc.) So if you want a decent copy, go for these. Good format for new readers. If you want the books cheap, or could care less about format, there's the 'reg' editions that are standard or the e-book versions.

Not all the books are out yet in this new format. As such, I will update this post once they are given a date, ISBN, etc. 

Here's the ISBNs for the books, so use these to search for them:

UPDATE Oct. 1 2012: details added for 'Crown of Swords'

UPDATE March 2013 : details added for 'Path of Daggers'.

UPDATE May 2013: details added for 'Winter's Heart'

UPDATE October 2013: details added for 'Crossroads of Twilight'

UPDATE Jan 2014: details added for 'Knife of Dreams'

UPDATE June 2014: details added for 'The Gathering Storm' 

UPDATE September 2014: details added for 'Towers of Midnight'

Final UPDATE January 2015: details added for 'Memory of Light'

Actual Final Update: January 2020: details added for 'The Companion' and for 'New Spring.' Now the collection will be completed.

Just got this now, wow! Maybe I should turn on comment notification or something. Anyway, no problem Anoym! Hop you're enjoying the series! It's not perfect, I admit, and shows its fault at times, but its overall enjoyable and 'fun'. Quite a good tribute to Tolkien :P
I'll keep posting ISBN info & dates. Keep an eye on *this* post and the blog itself.

Thank you for this, it was a wonderful aid in finding these editions of the books. Cannot wait until the information for a Memory of Light is updated. Thank you again!

Do you know if New Spring will come out like this? And if so is it really going to be last?

Sorry for the delay!

As of now, there is no info in regards to "New Spring".

However, it exists as a short story in the "Legends" anthology, and as a graphic novel!

I just posted the info for the final book, A Memory of Light, but I will keep my eyes open - though it seems unlikely at this point.
