A loyal companion for fans of The Wheel Of Time books and television series starring Rosamund Pike, Origins Of The Wheel Of Time allows readers to take a deep dive into the real-world history and mythology that inspired the world of Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time.
Origins of The Wheel of Time is written by Michael Livingston, Secretary-General of the United States Commission on Military History and professor of medieval literature at The Citadel, with a Foreword by Harriet McDougal, Robert Jordan’s editor, widow, and executor of his estate.
The book includes a brand-new, redrawn world map by Ellisa Mitchell using change requests discovered in unpublished notes; An alternate scene from an early draft of The Eye of the World; The long-awaited backstory of Nakomi; An eight-page, full colour photo insert; The first official biography of Robert Jordan, and MORE!
This companion to the internationally bestselling series will delve into the creation of Robert Jordan’s novels, drawing from interviews and an unprecedented examination of his unpublished notes. Michael Livingston tells the behind-the-scenes story of who Jordan was, how he worked, and why he holds such an important place in modern literature.
The second part of the book is a glossary to the “real world” in The Wheel of Time. King Arthur is in The Wheel of Time. Merlin, too. But so are Alexander the Great and the Apollo Space Program, the Norse gods and Napoleon’s greatest defeat―and so much more.
