Goodnight Jordan

September 17, 2007

Worst day ever

Some of you have been reading The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan for most of 2 decades now. He died yesterday of cardiac amyloidosis, which he was diagnosed with in 2006. In his memory I’d like to propose 9,685 pages of silence.

The wheel weaves as the wheel will

    I wondered if you’d seen that story. D’oh! He wasn’t done with his insane series! Don’t you wish you’d jumped ship several novels ago like I did? How will you ever know if Moiraine is really dead?


  2. Lauren Said on:

    I jumped ship several novels ago, thank you. All the parts Lloyd liked in the books (war stuff, strategy) were the things I hated, and all the stuff I liked in them (romance-y, girl stuff) Lloyd couldn’t stand.

    I hate when people have first names for both their first & last name.

    Michael Philip Thomas, or Thomas Michael Philip, or Philip Philip Philip …. stop driving me crazy.
