Win an autographed copy of Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson's THE GATHERING STORM


I have a copy of Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson's The Gathering Storm signed by both Sanderson and Harriet McDougal up for grabs, compliments of the cool folks at Tor Books. For more info about this title: Canada, USA, Europe.

Here's the blurb:

Tarmon Gai’don, the Last Battle, looms. And mankind is not ready.

The final volume of the Wheel of Time, A Memory of Light, was partially written by Robert Jordan before his untimely passing in 2007. Brandon Sanderson, New York Times bestselling author of the Mistborn books, was chosen by Jordan’s editor---his wife, Harriet McDougal---to complete the final book. The scope and size of the volume was such that it could not be contained in a single book, and so Tor proudly presents The Gathering Storm as the first of three novels that will make up A Memory of Light. This short sequence will complete the struggle against the Shadow, bringing to a close a journey begun almost twenty years ago and marking the conclusion of the Wheel of Time, the preeminent fantasy epic of our era.

In this epic novel, Robert Jordan’s international bestselling series begins its dramatic conclusion. Rand al’Thor, the Dragon Reborn, struggles to unite a fractured network of kingdoms and alliances in preparation for the Last Battle. As he attempts to halt the Seanchan encroachment northward---wishing he could form at least a temporary truce with the invaders---his allies watch in terror the shadow that seems to be growing within the heart of the Dragon Reborn himself.

Egwene al’Vere, the Amyrlin Seat of the rebel Aes Sedai, is a captive of the White Tower and subject to the whims of their tyrannical leader. As days tick toward the Seanchan attack she knows is imminent, Egwene works to hold together the disparate factions of Aes Sedai while providing leadership in the face of increasing uncertainty and despair. Her fight will prove the mettle of the Aes Sedai, and her conflict will decide the future of the White Tower---and possibly the world itself.

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

The rules are the same as usual. You need to send an email at reviews@(no-spam)gryphonwood.net with the header "GATHERING STORM." Remember to remove the "no spam" thingy.

Second, your email must contain your full mailing address (that's snail mail!), otherwise your message will be deleted.

Lastly, multiple entries will disqualify whoever sends them. And please include your screen name and the message boards that you frequent using it, if you do hang out on a particular MB.

Good luck to all the participants!

Can't wait either. Already pre-ordered from amazon, but a signed copy would be sweet!

These Robert Jordan books seem to have the worst covers. Come to think of it, the US editions always seem to be pretty bad.

Out of curiosity are these competitions open to all areas of the globe? Or just limited to people in the North America/Canada?

Patrick said...

Open to all.=)

All I have to do to participate is to e-mail my mail address (snail mail, lol) and a message board I frequent?
I'm assuming this is a WoT-related message board, but are there anyone in particular that counts, and others that don't "count"?

Karen said...

So when can we expect a review? Very strange that there are so few reviews available. I understand that there's no need to hype the book as it is surely one of the most anticipated book releases of the year. But would really like to have some insights :-)

aww Brandon Sanderson mentioned this giveaway on his blog, the odds of winning this one must have just gone through the roof :(.
