I don't know who Asmodean is, but I assume from the name that he's a bad guy? And apparently he's dead? And Maggie shot him in a two part episode?

Congratulations on being picked to finish the WoT. I have yet to read any of your other works and will likely not do so until I have read AMoL. Nothing personal, just want to read it without any prior biases. I am an avid fan of the WoT and can't wait to see what you do with the last book. I'm looking forward to it.

Well at least SOMEONE knows who killed Asmodean--GEESH!  lol  I thought RJ might just not tell us ever and laugh about it.  It's actually not that important, but he was my favorite bad guy, so I'd like to know.

and HURRAY!  Best. News. Ever.  When I read the headline I thought it was a joke at first because of how great it is.  Congrats!  I'm so glad that you'll *hopefully* get a gigantic fan base like you deserve. 

This will probably postpone Dragonsteel, which makes me very very sad, but oh well...I'm still very very happy about WoT!

Wow, that is amazing news. Congratulations again to EUOL. It might just be because I am in finals time, and therefore, extremely tired, but I had to read this three times to make sure that I understood the announcement. I guess I have 10,000 pages of catchup to do.

Yay!
I love WOT, you'll do it justice.
I was screaming when I read the news,  roommate thought I'd failed my finals or something...

Scalzi might have beaten him to win the Campbell award but Brandon Sanderson gets to finish The Wheel of Time series.  I think that's infinitely better and going to have a lot more fans read your great books than some puny award.  Scalzi blogged about Alcatraz and your article on Pullman's work and censorship but so far no mention about this.  Sounds like he's jealous.

Hey, hey, that's going a bit far. No need to knock Scalzi (and he certainly doesn't deserve to be knocked). The Campbell is a very good award to win, and John (and Naomi Novik) earned it. And John is far from jealous. C'mon. He pushes other authors' books more than most award-winning writers out there.

Is Scalzi a WoT follower? He doesn't seem like he would be.

Anyways. Congratulations Brandon. Most of my family members also congratulate you.

I just did a thread in the fantasy section of NaNo, not a great contribution, but I'm giving you all the resources I got.

Just curious, was this the latest "super secret project" on your progress chart thing?
