How’s this for a Great Hunt?
Tor Books has just announced that, starting tomorrow, an exclusive secret from the Wheel of Time will go live on Brandon Sanderson’s website!
But it won’t go live without a fight: the page will be completely encrypted. (And it's not live until tomorrow, sorry.)
To unlock it, fans will have to hunt down the many unique digital codes, printed on the back of Wheel of Time bumper stickers that Brandon will hide inside copies of The Way of Kings along each stop on his tour. (Which kicks off tonight!)
Each bumper sticker/code will unlock a piece of the secret and it will require the work of many fans in many cities to unlock the entire page. The Great Hunt begins!
Sounds like fun – I’m sure that Wheel of Time fans are up for the challenge.
In other news, the Prologue to Towers of Midnight (Book Depository, Powell’s Books, Indiebound) “Distinctions” (order it direct) is available for preorder and will be released on September 21st. I hate this – I loath to pay for something twice and can only see this as a money-hungry move by the publisher. But since people will pay for it, I can only conclude that it is a sound business move, if one that I find repugnant.
