Sadness

NH Statehouse
"The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend.  Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again.  In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose somewhere in the United States.  The wind was not the beginning.  There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of time.  

But it was an ending."

I'm more upset about this than I imagined I would be, since I didn't even read the 11th book when it came out. I guess I always thought I'd get back to them someday, but this...it's just so sad.

I think you have said best what was going through my mind when I heard.

Greetings. Stumbled upon you in kadath's journal post about women and video games.

Wanted to ask if I could put you on my f-list?

By the way, the Wheel of Time series is going to be finished - most of the final book was done (or at least heavily outlined) and will be published by his wife.

I remember devouring the early novels when they first came out. It was hard to maintain interest when the later novels took longer and longer to come out.

That's what I've heard, too! So at least there'll be something to finish when I get around to re-reading the whole thing. Like...when I'm retired. Hee.

And sure, I'm always happy to make new friends.
