series yet! But that’s not for lack of interest, it’s for lack of time. I’ll
get there someday. However, it has been recommended to me by numerous friends
and family members, so I had to do a little research and would like to share
what I’ve learned in this week’s Throwback Thursday Fantasy Relay.
The Wheel of Time
First Volume: The Eye of the World 1984
Brandon Sanderson, The Wheel of Time is one of the greatest epics of fantasy
and a #1 internationally bestselling series. Taking place both in our past and
our future, the saga tells the story of a man destined to face the Evil One and
save the world—or destroy it in the process.
The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and
what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.
- A series of Graphic Novels has been published, containing the first 4 books and the
“New Spring” novella.
- According to Wikipedia, as of 2008 the series had sold over
44 million copies worldwide.
- A computer game, role playing game and a soundtrack album have also been
created. The television and film rights to the series have been optioned several times, most recently by Universal Studios. In 2014, The Wheel of Time was nominated for a Hugo Award.
I don’t have one yet, but I certainly look forward to this
series. I’ll get there J
like the series? Are there other fantasy favorites you’d like to see featured
in this series?
