    The Gleeman Talks: Why the Wheel of Time Sticks with Us

    The Gleeman Talks: Why the Wheel of Time Sticks with Us

    This episode is a little different. Instead of the normal crew at the Barside, it's just Brian laying out his thoughts on why The Wheel of Time works in ways that most other book series do not. It's short, it's sweet... it's The Gleeman Talks. Enjoy. Feedback much appreciated.

WOTaholic lonely in Australia

Great discussion for hardcore WOTaholic s
Nibbles is truely a legend but suspiciously deferential to Matt. Is Matt the dark one for the Grand nibbles ( damn spellcheck) to defer so much. Is this why he loves Lanfear. More questions than answers. Thanks
