At midnight on 17 September, Tor made the prologue to The Gathering Storm, the upcoming twelfth volume in Robert Jordan’s epic Wheel of Time series, available in a variety of formats. To my surprise and delight, audiobook listeners were not left out.

The prologue of the long-awaited conclusion to Robert Jordan’s fantasy masterpiece. This selection features a bonus recording of Robert Jordan’s widow and longtime editor, Harriet McDougal, discussing the process of continuing the Wheel of Time series after Jordan’s death, and how they came to select Brandon Sanderson to carry the torch.

The novel’s first chapter is available for free reading at, but to my knowledge hasn’t been released in audio. Reading the chapter requires a account, but it’s fast and free to sign up.
