It is with heavy heart that I post this news. James Oliver Rigney, best known as Robert Jordan, has passed away. http://www.dragonmount.com/RobertJordan/ I know many people share differing opinions of his work, but I will miss him. His writing opened up a new world and I would get lost for months when I would pick up his newest book and invariably decide to reread the series. Robert Jordan, James Rigney, thank you for countless hours of wonderment and joy.
