Forbes.com profiles Robert Jordan (and fans)

Guest Jason


Forbes.com has published an article on their website which profiles Robert Jordan, his illness, and the outstanding support that his fans have shown. Several WoT fan sites are mentioned, including Dragonmount.


The article is filled with some great insight, and includes a discussion of the fate of the final Wheel of Time novel, A Memory of Light.




Personal thoughts:

This article is the first time that Robert Jordan has publicly said that he's open to the possibility of having somebody else finish the series if the worst were to occur. Nobody has even begun to consider who it would be, but the article points out that the obvious choice would be his wife Harriet, who also edits the series. Any WoT fan who has been around a while knows that Harriet is in many ways as deeply a part of the series as Jim is. I think that if he were to pass on his notes to her and she were to finish it, the fans at large would accept it and the story would be fully told as it was meant to be. BUT... make no mistake. I have deep confidence that if anybody can beat something like this, it's Robert Jordan. What do you guys think?
