When the death of Robert Jordan robbed Wheel of Time fans of the conclusion to the saga in the middle of its writing, there was much discussion about how the world could come to know what happened.
Here comes the news that Brandon Sanderson has been selected to complete the saga using the mixture of completed scenes, drafts and recorded notes Jordan left behind.
Full interview with the new keeper of the kingdom can be found on Robert Jordan’s website.
Robert Jordan passed away this afternoon. The Wheel of Time author was diagnosed with a rare blood disease several years ago.
I was at the bookstore today, and noticed two of fall’s big fantasy releases are already out: Neil Gaiman’s Anansi Boys and Robin Hobb’s Shaman’s Crossing. Coming out next Tuesday is Gregory Maguire’s Son of a Witch and the latest SW novel.
Also coming out soon is George R. R. Martin’s long-awaited A Feast for Crows, and – surprise! – yet another Wheel of Time book from Robert Jordan.
Star Wars aside, what fall releases are you most looking forward to?
