WHEEL OF TIME Book 13 title (for real, this time)

Brandon Sanderson has confirmed that Book 13 of The Wheel of Time - the one that comes out in October 2010, not the one out in a few weeks which is The Gathering Storm - will be called Towers of Midnight.

I approve of this title, as it's an already-existing Robert Jordan name, a reference to the thirteen-towered fortress-castle in the city of Imfaral in Seanchan, Luthair Paendrag's headquarters during the initial invasion of the Seanchan continent. A nice bit of detail there.

Glad to hear it's less generic than the previous - I don't mind TGS, but it's a little, well, unrelated. Great job, I'd say. ;-)

how is it unrelated? the storm nynaeve feels is definately the last battle, therefore "the gathering storm" symbolizes the nearing of the last battle.

The actual gathering storm is mentioned throughout. I should know, I've just finished reading it! ;-)
