Well, hell. R.I.P.

For those who haven't seen it on other blogs yet, it looks like Robert Jordan has passed away.

Damnit. Say what you want about how the Wheel of Time ended up going, but the man still did give me a hell of a lot of enjoyment in his time, along with indirectly introducing me to a hell of a lot of interesting people.

R.I.P.

Wow, i remember spending hours and hours on rec.arts.sf.written.robert-jordan discussing the books back in college. I think it was only up to book 6 or 7 back then? I'd already read through the entire series, such as it was at that point, two or three times.

Yeah, RIP =/

Yeah :) Were you on r.a.sf.w.r-j too? I was active... looks like on and off from 1994 to 1996 according to google groups.

Ah, I can't remember if I was on there by then or not. It's just odd, because probably a good half or more of my friends' list (and the commenters on my posts and such) are from that same newsgroup, so for a bit I thought maybe I'd had it wrong, and you had added me from that connection. o_O

A small world, indeed.
