It has happened sonner than I thought it would. Robert Jordan's widow has picked his successor. Brandon Sanderson to finish WoT I am still saddened by the loss of Mr. Jordan. His stories have been a part of my life for years. I recently walked into a book store and was touched by an end cap memorial to him displaying his WoT books. However, I am excited by the infusion of a fresh view to the world of the wheel. I wish him all the best. This must be a daunting task.
