An Hour With Harriet

2012-04-30: I had the great pleasure of speaking with Harriet McDougal Rigney about her life. She's an amazing talent and person and it will take you less than an hour to agree.

Pshaw! That's like not buying ToM because you know that eventually AMoL is going to come out! What kind of fan be you?!

The BBoBA was interesting because it was kind of a snapshot of the series at the time it was taken, with part of the fun trying to be figuring out what parts of it might end up being relevant to the story. It wasn't supposed to be a comprehensive encyclopedia, especially since it's not an omniscient author tome.

Wow. So many people have special editions, extra copies, autographed copies, etc, that I feel a bit overwhelmed.

I have, up until the last couple of books, all papaerback novels, with a couple that had to be replaced for either falling apart or that there were some big errors. Like a copy of Winter's Heart I had, it got up to like page 370 something, and then jumped back 3 chapters, and then picked up around 576or so. Really frustrating at times, I tell you.

I suppose I should have mentioned that all of my hardbacks are signed, either by Harriet or Brandon or both. Only LOC is signed by RJ though. Brandon drew a picture of Tairy Goodkind in my TOM.

They were Sweet, but kind of smushed in a different way. And the underlying embossed titles are all different typefaces, which is kind of cool. If I recall correctly I got that whole set for two bucks, then bought that BWB as one of my three required purchases along with a sci fi anthology and a poetry book, then cancelled my membership. 'Twas a deal.

Edit....and no they are smaller than normal hardcovers, but not by much.

Interesting - sounds a little bit like my library binding copies.

I just owned 1 copy each of the series from book 1 until tower of midnight.

And they are all mass paperbacks.

Nope, me too. One copy of each in paperback up to Path of Daggers, of which I had to replace Fires of Heaven as it totally fell apart. They are all in the nice printed picture covers (whichever they are, Orbit?), as is my HB copy of Winter's Heart. That was the point I caught up with the series being released, and never again waited for a paperback copy. I then own one of all from Winter's Heart onwards in MASSIVE hardback, of which CoT onwards are the plainer covers with the wheel & serpent on. And I don't lend any of them to ANYONE. I have considered buying the later ones in paperback, purely due to the hardback's being so big they are hugely impractical to read anywhere except where I can rest them - no good for journeys, or in bed etc etc.

Oh. I also own NS in hardback wheel & serpent. And the BWB.

Why do we DO that? My yearbooks are on the bottom shelf too!

I'd still buy it, honestly. There will eventually be a comprehensive encyclopedia-type book published, but that should be significantly different than the BWB, which is charming for all its faults.

In this case, it was because the bottom shelf was the only one big enough to hold them.

Big enough? Do/did you have a pyramid-shaped bookshelf?

I have all the books, except tGS and ToM, in Orbit's paperback. The others are Orbit hard cover. Wheel and serpent with black background is what made me buy tEotW, the thickness and the fact that there already were several books in the series (tFoH was the newest WoT in the store) made me pick them up.
Anyone else who searches for the thickest books in the longest series when shopping for literature?

Hardbacks 1-3 and 7-12 plus New Spring
Paperbacks 1, 3-7 and BWB
nook books GH, TGS and "Distinctiona" chapter from ToM

I found RJ late, right after his passing, and afer reading a tattered pb TEotW, hunted down the series at the Strand as I read it through over a couple seasons, then NS. Bought TGS and ToM new on release. Currently on 3rd reading.

Old Tolkienite I am. Happy much to have found RJ and GRRM, the only other masters of fantasy I've found and whom I'll reread many times.
