TOR.COM REVEALS WHELAN COVER ART

TOR.COM REVEALS WHELAN COVER ART

A MEMORY OF LIGHT COVER REVEAL

TOR.com:  “We are very excited to reveal the cover to A Memory of Light, the final volume of Robert Jordan’s epic fantasy series The Wheel of Time. The artwork for this final edition is by, arguably, one of today’s most beloved illustrators, Michael Whelan.

“The task of jumping into a 14 volume series on its last installment must have been a daunting one but Michael rose to the occasion. Harriet McDougal, Jordan’s editor and widow remarked, “that is the Rand I have waited to see for twenty years.” when she saw the image. And while the artwork clearly has all the earmarks of a Whelan painting, it’s theme and coloration make it a fitting heir to Darrell K. Sweet’s series of Wheel of Time covers.”

NEW KINDLE BOOK WITH A WHELAN COVER!

NEW MUTANT HUNTER RELEASE FROM STEPHEN R. COX

Between the beginning and the end lies what really matters: the chase. This is a tale of adventure, heartbreak and a race through the future. It takes place in a world where your only real friend has a trigger and hope flees from you like a ghost. This is where redemption comes through violence.

Stephen R. Cox has teamed with Hugo Award-winning artist Michael Whelan to present a series that is becoming a classic of post-apocalyptic literature. The premise is brutally simple: survival comes first then you grab the bits and pieces of life that still make you human. At least you try…

Mutant Hunter: Legends of the Fallout – available at Amazon.com

A MEMORY OF LIGHT

WHEEL OF TIME COVER ART

Michael has just finished the cover art for A MEMORY OF LIGHT, the 14th and final book in the classic Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan and now Brandon Sanderson.

The first book was published in 1990 and over the years has garnered a huge fan following. Sadly, Robert Jordan died in 2007 after the 11th book, but he had mapped out the rest of the series and author Brandon Sanderson is finishing the epic.

Noted illustrator Darrell K. Sweet did the covers for all the other books, but he passed away unexpectedly late last year. Michael Whelan is honored to be a part of this enduring project and Tor Books will be releasing more news soon.

HOLIDAY SCENES

HOLIDAY SCENES

A selection of images from the Whelan family cards.

“The change of seasons, each with its own palette of colors and endlessly varying skies, is a joy to experience here in the Northeast. While taking my daily walks this time of year, my thoughts seem to drift away from day-to-day concerns to pleasant memories of holidays past when my children were little. These seasonal feelings more often than not lead to a small painting for our family holiday card.”
