Robert Jordan, The Wheel of Time, Stopped
Fantasy author Robert Jordan has died of a chronic illness. He was one of my most favorite fantasy authors. He was the author of the "Wheel of Time" series. It has always been hard waiting for his next book to come out. When it did, I usually re-read the previous book to remind myself what was happening. Jordan was working on a 12th volume of the series at the time of his death. Since he knew he was dying he left plenty of notes and told his family how it was to end so his fans will have the ending to his story. Millions of fans will be chomping at the bit to read the conclusion to his epic fantasy series. That will be a bittersweet day. I hope they do something special to remember him.
