** Robert Jordan on the WWW **

Jordan's Wheel of Time series is a mammoth undertaking. It is only understandable that it takes over a year for each subsequent volume to be released, one I confess to avidly devouring once it comes out. To ease your hunger, waiting between books, I offer the following sites:
  • Robert Jordan's official page at
  • - Excellent source of up-to-date Wheel of Time information. Hosts Robert Jordan's blog!
  • The Wheel of Time Index - Pam Korda's excellent, Compleat guide to all Web-based information on Robert Jordan and his Wheel of Time. Lists it all
  • The Wheel of Time FAQ - answered in friendly hypertext
  • Encyclopaedia WoT - the exhaustive encyclopedia on The Wheel of Time: annotated chapter summaries, character write-ups, geography, history, etc. Over 3000 pages and up to 300,000 page hits per month
  • wotmania - features Robert Jordan's official blog, active discussion forums, FAQ, Theories, etc. Very well organized
  • The White Tower at TarValon.Net - impressive WoT fan community, styled after (obviously) the White Tower. Serves fans not only in English, but also in Nederlands, Français, Deutsch, Italiano, Norsk, Español, Svenska
  • The Great Hall - WoT fan community, with discussion forums, a WoT-dedicated Wiki, White Tower-based roleplay, and more
  • Theoryland of the Wheel of Time - Loonie or likely? Rand merges with Moridin; Slayer killed Asmodean. You decide ...
  • WOTmud IV - the free online role-playing MUD (Multi-user dungeon) game based on the Wheel of Time, on-line since 1993. Wield angreal as Aes Sedai, sharpen your knife as a Trolloc or serve the Empress! Don't miss their excellent Wheel of Time Directory - links to great sites, and all of them up to date. Highly recommended
  • The Knife of Dreams Internet Hunt is now over, but for a WoT fan, the Hunt is prize enough

  • - this site's interesting: most web directories only accept links to your main or index page. Not so here: only secondary pages are accepted, on the premise that these are the more interesting
  • Link2Me Link Exchange Directory - The Professional SEO Link Exchange - quality directory of webmasters actively seeking appropriate link exchanges. Not a link farm; improve search engine rankings and site traffic the right way. Work clever, not hard
