Wow, I can't believe it. Ten or twelve years ago, I used to be a regular poster on the Robert Jordan usenet group, and it seems like every month we'd get newbies in with questions or rumors that he had died. More than once there were threads about what would happen to the series if something should happen to him. To actually have that happen, with pages already written in the final book... I'm sure that the remaining novel will be completed in some fashion, Jordan seemed like the kind of guy who would have covered his bases, but this is going to bum the hell out of me for a while.
I still remember where I was when I first read Eye of The world, and I even met Jordan at a signing when Path of Daggers was released. I started to lose interest in the series over the last several (and very meandering) books, but he will really be missed.
