General Wheel of Time News

The past week marked the 10th anniversary of  the passing of  James Oliver Rigney, Jr.

Ten years ago
"Death comes for us all. We can only choose how to face it when it comes."
He faced it with honor ten years ago, September 16, 2007.

The Spanish Site was very eloquent:

For those of us who don't speak Spanish, Carl from facebook was kind enough to translate it:
If today we can enjoy the wide variety of science fiction and fantasy worlds all around us, in the form of novels, comics, movies, and games, is largely thanks to the distinguished, pioneering people who served as inspiration for many other creators.
Such was the case with Tolkien with Lord of the Rings, such was the case with Margaret Wiess and Tracy Hickman with Dragonlance, and without any doubt, shining like another star in that firmament that has illuminated the lives of so many of us, such is the case with Robert Jordan and his Wheel of Time.
Today, on the tenth anniversary of his death, we wanted to pay a small homage to his work in our own way, given the special relationship with our dear Brandon Sanderson, who had the privilege of writing the last volumes of the saga. In the days to come we will be sharing content that we have been compiling.
If there is any additional beauty, beyond the immediate enjoyment of a work of art, it is undoubtedly the fact that it can endure through time.
And as art, literature also endures and reverberates through the years, with each new person who enters a world full of words, following the course of the story set down by the author, from page to page.
When an author dies, we are filled with sadness, but there is always the consolation when we turn our eyes to the eternal universe that they have created, that once visited in the novels, endures in our hearts.
We visit them, we share them, and in doing so we help them to survive, forever.
Brandon Sanderson also made a blog post: (small snippet)
But this is also a very meaningful day for those of us in Wheel of Time fandom. It was the day we lost a great man, and I lost a mentor I’d never met.
I believe I’ve mentioned how strange it is for me to know Robert Jordan’s family so well, now, after working with them intensely for five years—yet not know the man himself. To me, Robert Jordan is still an almost mythical figure, like from the books themselves. A statuesque man with a hat, a cane, and a knowing smile.
I could probably go on at length regarding the many ways he changed the face of fantasy, at least for me, but today I’ll try to pick just one. Robert Jordan taught me how to describe a cup of water.
Tor made a video back in 2012 that's worth watching,  "The Wheel of Time: the Robert Jordan Story".
