The release date for the much-awaited Wheel of Time book, The Gathering Storm, has been changed. Instead of being released in early November, it will come out two weeks early on October 27th in the US, UK, and Australia. The unabridged audio book will be released the same day.

In other news, Scott Westerfeld’s new book, Leviathan, will be released on October 6th. (The same day as Terry Pratchett’s Unseen Academicals.) Leviathan is an alternate historical fiction novel set at the beginning of World War I, with steampunk airships.

Prince Aleksander, would-be heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, is on the run. His own people have turned on him. His title is worthless. All he has is a battletorn war machine and a loyal crew of men.

Deryn Sharp is a commoner, disguised as a boy in the British Air Service. She’s a brilliant airman. But her secret is in constant danger of being discovered.

With World War I brewing, Alek and Deryn’s paths cross in the most unexpected way…taking them on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure that will change both their lives forever.
