  1. Hi to all, I am new to the site, although in the past I have looked here and at other WOT sites, I have not participated. I just felt now I should say something. I have been a reader since "EOTW" was printed in paperback. Each time a new book would come out, a good friend and myself would reread all the stories to get current, then go out and buy the new hardcover. We were in that process for "KOD" and then my good friend passed away, This was just about a year ago, and as such, I never started "KOD". I had been rereading though recently and was into "COT" and then of course Tuesday heard the news. I am in shock and stunned. I do not know what to say. I feel such a loss and heartbroken. I love this series so much, and I think that is really why I feel compelled to write. I had so many great discussions with my friend Mark, who passed on, and since then I have felt quite a void. It has been hard reading this series and not having someone to call and talk to about the books. No one else I know has read the books or immersed themselves in them like we had. I was fortunate enough to get a signed copy of "New Spring" and we were going to try and go to a signing of "Kod" and meet the man himself, but that never happened, we live in Iowa and he never came too close. I also was looking foward to the other 2 short stories like "New Spring". I loved Moraine and just new she would come back, and when that story about how she met Lan came out in "Legends", I just thought that was awesome. I often read critisims of the books, how they are too detailed and too long. I also have felt myself that there are good books and bad , some slower and boring, but each time I reread the books, I find the details pertinient, and I find that they are not slow at all. I often recall how the same people relflect that "The Lord of the Rings" is not long enough. I think that the story is just perfect, and am glad to be a part of it, and long to go there. In all of this I worry and wonder, would he have changed the title "Memory of Light", and how can it possibly be finished now, will it?. I know as a writer he probably wanted to move on, I read this talk of his new ideas, and it always made me nervous that he would not get to the short stories. Well, all I can say is that I am shocked, stunned, and saddened. -Dorian
