While reading through my web-comics, I read on GU Comics that Robert Jordan – one the fantasy authors whose books I read passed away on the 16th of September after battling cardiac amyloidosis for more than a year.
Robert Jordan 1948 -2007
Although I had stopped reading his novels when they started to drag on a bit after A Crown of Swords, I still consider Robert Jordan to be one of the greatest fantasy authors, up their with Tolkien, Eddings, and Feist. I am glad that his final novel A Memory of Light will be published. I think I’ll have to read the rest of the series and find out what becomes of Rand al’Thor and the others from Edmond’s Field.
