I think this is the section my husband was the consultant for. I'd have to look at the credits to be sure. Jordan always said my husband had the best grasp of the sword forms. I guess that makes him the only real blade master in the fandom?

Hoping I can get my computer to load something of this excerpt beyond the first page. The first page is wonderfully done though.

Same problem here, I can load just the first page... Tried in Chrome and IE8.

Hope to see the rest soon :-)

It works fine for me. I enjoyed New Spring when it came out (slowly). I have a signed #0 somewhere.

It must be a Chrome/IE8 thing. Firefox works fine.

Good stuff!

Is it just me, or is the coloring a bit of on the 9th page? It almost looks like one of the men has been separated from his legs in the upper right corner.

@Chargus: yeah, I see what you mean. The shirt and the ground are similar colors, but the shirt is a solid color where the ground is mottled.

@10: I thought the guy in the upper right on pg. 9 was missing his upper half?

All in all, it looks wonderful though!

btw, Safari works just great for loading.
