It's actually released tonight. And unless you are a US or CAN citizen (and I don't even think the Canadian one is working) you can't get it. It's north america only. again.
That really is a shame. I would've bought it (spoilers :P) but now that I can't, I have to find other ways to get it...

Precisely. This is the 3rd WOT mini release in a row that Tor still haven't gotten international rights for. I'll get it one way or another, but would much rather pay for it. It's supposed to be released on Amazon and similar sites also but I can't find it yet.

Okay, I used a fake address and it worked just fine.  :P Now, who wants to get some spoilers? ;)

I'm now genuinely concerned about getting spoiled, and I really want the damn prologue!

My concern is that one of my absolute biggest questions in the series has its answer in the prologue:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Where is Demandred?
Make Another World.

Finished it!  :o

Mild spoiler, only spoiling something you don't learn in the prologue.
Spoiler for Hiden:
You STILL don't know who Demandred is!  ::) But you learn a few things about the other 6 (including Moridin) chosen forsaken.


Goddess of rats and hyenas, just zoom in on some street on google maps, this even provides you with the zip code. :)

For anyone in the UK:

I was just browsing Audible and the prologue is actually available on there for £2. £1.31 if you already have an Audible account.

It's 3 hours long! A prologue.  :o

Tor has posted up Chapter 1. Spoilers for the prologue.

Thanks! Now I've read the prologue, the Mat-chapter, the first chapter, ... If Tor continues with this, I won't have to buy the book once it's out. ;)

Personally I'm going to avoid temptation and wait for the release although a Mat chapter does interest me greatly, but no I'm gonna wait. I've waited this long.
I saw them on the shores
the deepening pits of their gaze
vowed immortal war
against the sighing calm
of Jaghut seas . . .

I'm waiting for a transcript/ written chapter.
Can't concentrate enough to understand audio books.
DON'T READ THE COMMENTS IN THAT LINK IF YOU DON'T LIKE SPOILERS
Just thought I would warn you all :)
