For all who have yet to hear, Robert Jordan died yesterday after a long struggle, surrounded by his loved ones. I had the dubious pleasure of being the first bearer of this news to the local speculative fiction bookshop, and the looks on their faces reflected the one on mine when I first heard.
Without a doubt, he will be sadly missed.
Dragonmount will soon be posting details on where to send condolences. If you do, refrain from asking any questions about the future, just wish them the best in this trying time.
Rest in peace.
