As previously announced, Tor Books has started publishing electronic editions of Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time books, timed to coincide with the publication of the antepenultimate volume in the series, The Gathering Storm, written by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson.
These electronic editions are being created from original page layout files, and are being updated with the latest copyedits and corrections from Robert Jordan and later, from Team Jordan. They also boast all-new covers featuring art from a variety of illustrators, including David Grove, Donato Giancola, Sam Weber, and Ketai Kotaki, all commissioned by Tor Books (and Tor.com) Art Director Irene Gallo.
Since these books are being put together basically from scratch, in many cases from new or updated files, Tor Books is putting them out at the rate of one per month. Below is a schedule of publication, for your handy reference:
