The sad, early death of author Robert Jordan hasn't prevented his Wheel of Time series from continuing - in these days of corporate franchises such inconveniences are overcome with ease it seems. Step forward Brandon Sanderson, the highly talented author of the Mistborn novels, chosen by Jordan's widow (and editor) Harriet to complete the outline for book twelve, The Gathering Storm, that Jordan was working on when he died. Now complete, this weighty volume equals its eleven predecessors in weight and scope and, according to reviews in quality also. Two further volumes by Sanderson are in the pipeline.
The Gathering Storm is a big hardcover published in the UK by Orbit - who offer a tasteful alternative to the ghastly, if traditional, Darrell Sweet artwork being used on the cover of Tor's US edition.
