All essays here have either been updated following Winter's Heart, or do not need to be as nothing essential in them has been changed. Some of the older essays will be replaced when I have done the work of updating them. Others, alas, are irredeemable.
On what I believe likely to happen in, or relevant to, future books.
Which differs from theory, in that it will probably make little or no difference to the course of the books - although, as always, there are exceptions. In a nutshell, "This is what the Pattern will weave" is theory, "This is HOW the Pattern weaves" is speculation.

The Dragoness Reborn
These are my comments on the books, both as we wait for them and as they come out. Each was written either shortly before or shortly after the release of a new book. You can see for yourselves how accurate some of them are.
In Defense Of...
In which I defend unpopular characters or organisations - usually, but not always, seriously.

These are essays on fantasy in general rather than on the Wheel of Time. They are aimed particularly at people who hope to write fantasy in the near or far future, but don't get the idea that this is advice from a master; I too am still in the 'aspiring' category.

These essays were written by my brother, who usually goes by Shadar (yes, the character in Long Live Insanity was inspired by him). The section title was his suggestion.
In other words, essays that don't fit anywhere else.
