RIP: Robert Jordan

And the SciFi/Fantasy community suffers another loss not long after the death of Madeline L'Engle.

Robert Jordan died Sunday afternoon. While I never read his books, his fans stand out in my mind as some of the most dedicated, obsessive and entertaining people to ever walk into my store. I'm saddened for his family, friends and the Fantasy community as a whole. He will be missed.

Feel free to share your thoughts on his books, or any interactions you may have had with him below.

I hope that bad things don't really come in threes...

i confess--i was one of those fans. i grew up to be an ordinary boring person who doesn't go to any of the costumed conventions and i edit literary fiction for a living and in my free time i read books by, like, orhan pamuk, but deep in the dark recesses of my heart I LOVE THE WHEEL OF TIME. robert jordan befriended me when all the kids in the sixth grade, um, didn't.

heavy heart.

Have you ever told the heartwarming Christmas story about the Robert Jordan paperback?

Only read one of his books. Was a little long-winded but still a good book.

May he rest in peace.
