Almost by accident I found it. An article stating that Robert Jordan, the author of the Wheel of Time series, died on Sunday. That is very sad. With one more book to go in the series, it leaves people wondering if the series will ever be finished. Will the fans take over and finish the series ( or more likely keep it going forever )? ...
Actually, it looks like it should be finished. However, I can't currently find the article that I read that in yet. Oh well, I'm sure it will come up soon. Leave it to the publishers to make sure this gets published soon to take advantage of the extra traffic. It's cold, but publishing is a tough business and the writing world lost one of the most popular fantasy writers since JRR Tolkein.
