R.I.P. Robert Jordan (James Oliver Rigney, Jr.)
He fought the good fight but the inevitable happened - Robert Jordan died of complications from the amyloidosis he's been suffering for some time. It's a sad day. I've been a fan of The Wheel of Time for for almost 15 years now - I consider it the 'gateway book/series' that brought me into my love of the SFF genre. It may not have been the best written series out there, but for me it holds a special place and will always remain one of my favorites. My thoughts, prayers, and deepest sympathy go out to his family and friends as they morn his passing.
