Wheel of Time Author

eyeoftheworldRobert Jordan, author of the insanely popular (and Loud Librarian favorite) fantasy series The Wheel of Time, has died.

He was 58.

The final volume in the 12-book series remains unfinished, but friends and family have the plot as dictated to them by Jordan prior to his death.

This was the first fantasy series I ever read (beginning in college), and is the same series I am endeavoring to reread before the 12th volume is released. Now, it will be a somber occasion, but Jordan has left an indelible mark on fantasy literature, and will be missed.

I actually want to go back an re-read them all now. Someone just needs to lend me the other 9 books I don't have.
