Get Someone Hooked on the Wheel of Time for 99 Cents

The Wheel of Time: From The Two Rivers by Robert Jordan is now 99 centsThe Wheel of Time is a truly epic fantasy series, spanning three decades and fourteen books, and representing many lifetimes’ worth of creativity both on and off the page.

But it sure is a lot to take on!

A Memory of Light, the long-awaited final volume of this titanic series, comes out from Tor Books on January 8, 2013. With the end finally in sight, there has never been a better time for fans of epic fantasy to see what makes this series great. (Or to send it on to friends who have been holding off on committing to a big series.) To that end, the first half of The Eye of the World, “From the Two Rivers” is currently available as a 99 cent ebook and is available from all ebook retailers and for all devices, including Nook, Kindle, and iPad.

If you include New Spring, doesn't the series actually span 15 books?

I know that it isn't a main series book, but since it is likely to be the only "stand alone," wouldn't it make sense to include it in the total count?

Is "Ravens" in this segment? I keep hearing about a short chapter called "Ravens" that is a prolog of sorts, but I can't Find it.

You can see portions of the WoT graphic novel covering EOTW that covers the Ravens chapter by searching Tor.com.

Went to buy the iPad version, but once you launch iTunes the price changes to $1.99. What's up with that?

This seems incredibly hard to buy. If you go to the Tor-Forge site and track down the ebook, it directs you to one of several outside vendors, all of which are associated with particular devices or eco-systems. I don't use any of those devices (well, OK, I have Android stuff, but I don't *read* on it.) Figuring Google was the least tied to a specific device, I ordered it through Google Play. After jumping through a bunch of hoops, I was able to download the ePub and thence to my reader.

Once upon a time, Tor was selling some titles through Baen's Webscriptions site. That was *easy* to deal with. Order book. Pay for it. Download it. I had hoped that once the no-DRM policy came along, it would be possible to buy Tor books there again. Any chance of this happening? Or *some* bookstore that's a bookstore and not an "eco-system?"
