Tor Books Chairman and Founder Tom Doherty reveals the enduring journey of the manuscript itself:

When I first acquired Warrior of the Altaii, back in early ’79, I was still publisher of Ace. I knew we had a Storyteller. I thought for a first novel this is great, but Harriet had acquired Fallon Blood from him as his publisher. Ace distributed Fallon Blood first in 1980; it was a hit. Fallon Blood was a novel of the American Revolution in the south, and the country was then celebrating its bicentennial. By then I had left Ace; Harriet and Jim Baen came with me as I started Tor. Jim Rigney (Robert Jordan) came with Harriet. The Fallon Trilogy finished in ’81-82, then came the Conan novels, and, of course, the Wheel of Time. Warrior of the Altaii was the first (and now last) book I bought from Jim, and I am so pleased to publish it for his fans.



I'll end up buying this day of release.
