WOT I just heard the news :'( :'( :'(
« on: July 02, 2008, 08:54:07 PM »
I just heard the news that Robert Jordan passed away and that Brandon was going to finish the series. I am grateful to him for taking over the series it means a lot to those completely engrossed in the novel. I took a hiatus from reading due to family issues. I really must say though that my sadness is not just for the loss of the books but the loss of a truly amazing fantasy author I have read many books but Robert Jordan to me has always been the best author ever. He was able to capture my imagination and feel what the characters felt I have dreamed of the places they went and the things they did on more than one occasion.  :'(

When I heard I was disappointed that RJ died. He is my inspiration, as I am hopefully going to be an author myself. But I was impressed that they were able to find such a good author like Brandon Sanderson, I hope he can live up to it. I personally have no worries though, after reading some of his work. Can't wait for it to come out!
You think I'm afraid? Well, get ready to be surprised.

I frankly don't think they could have done better than Brandon.

Uh, since when is our Jade Knight a moderator? I'm pretty sure he isn't. (No offense, Jade.)

He's always been a moderator, he just used to be more involved before Spriggan did all those changes a while back, which changed Jade's admin rights. He used to edit stuff mostly.

huh. Yeah, I guess I never noticed that. Jade's just not around much. I stand corrected.
