It would be really nice if we could get this article--or even my blog--on Slashdot or Fark or the like.  Anyone think they could manage?

So . . . Brandon. Does Rand die? ;-)

Congrats, again! I'll do my best to make sure all 5 people in Maine are made aware of this.

If anyone has Digg, fark or /. accounts please submit this news.  Brandon has limited internet and computer access (long story) so he's asked me to spearhead this.

Holy freaking cow, Brandon. You actually got it.

Congrats!

Just make sure that you do a good job with it or millions of rabid fans will storm your house and make your life completely miserable. So yeah. No pressure or anything.

I've known about this possibility for months, and knew for sure over the weekend (from the blog entry), but still, reading the official news this morning made me giddy. (My heartbeat increased, and my hands even got shaky. It's bizarre.) This is just cool news, and I know Brandon will do a great job.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Congragulations Brandon!  What an honor.

I submitted the story to slashdot, but it looks like while I was editing mine, it already made the front page.

I dugg the digg story, I'll submit a reddit one as well.

Wow . . . I mean, wow. I didn't even realize you were up as a possibility to write the last book. I just want to go around telling everyone I know . . . and many would probably look at me like I was crazy and ask, "What's Wheel of Time." Sad but true. That's awesome, Brandon.

Was this what Dan was teasing me by not telling me? When you and Dave were in town you were going to tell me and I think the conversation derailed and we forgot to bring it up again. I saw the news first thing when I opened up my email this morning. (Dang keyboard died and it took all morning to replace. This is on my work computer. I think I have bad luck with keyboards.)

At any rate, this is very cool news indeed. Congrats!

I don't remember teasing you about this, but I might have. Brandon said I wasn't allowed to tell anyone, but he didn't say I couldn't stick out my tongue and chant "I've got a secret" over and over.

That's what my supervisor said, but most of my other co-workers know about the series.
