Tor Books announced today that novelist Brandon Sanderson has been chosen to finish the final novel in Robert Jordan’s bestselling Wheel of Time fantasy series. Robert Jordan, one of the greatest storytellers of the 20th and early 21st centuries, died September 16th after a courageous battle with the rare blood disease amyloidosis.
When Robert Jordan died, I posted an In Memorium page at the circulation desk -- fans who hadn't heard the news read it and looked like they'd been punched (which was not my intention, obviously). Invariably, the first question was: What about the series?
Now I have an answer.
