Wheel of Time series...

Anyone here a fan of the series by Robert Jordan?

If anyone is I just want to give a quick update...he's working on his final book and its tentatively set for a 2008 release...he's fighting a pretty serious disease off at the moment and so its not going as fast has hoped but he's fighting it and it sounds like he's winning!

It's been a while since I read the novels but I still remember the main points...unfortunately its one of those series where you have to have read the other books before really understanding the next books...and if you don't have it fresh in your mind then there could be issues... But it is soooooo gooood.

Right now there are 11 books, all averaging about 1000 pages and one prequel. After he finishes Book 12 he'll start in on the other two prequels I can't wait!

I am a fan, but I am glad this one is the last. Some of the last few books have seemed to be 'stretched out' to make a big book with little substance or movement in the plot!

Sorry to hear, though, that he is ill.

Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series is also almost over...earlier this year he had surgery on his heart...

Jeez is it just me or are all the authors having near fatal issues suddenly?
