I really liked his Wheel of Time books back when I was in high school, although they got a little too intricate and verbose for me around book 8, but you have to give the man respect for coming up with something on the scale of Tolkien times, like, three or so.

He was very well loved by his fans and will be missed sorely. Cheers to you, Mr. Rigney. Your work entertained many and you brought to life an amazing story. Prayers and condolences go out to Harriet and Wilson and the rest of the clan.

You can never know everything, and part of what you know is always wrong. Perhaps even the most important part. A portion of wisdom lies in knowing that. A portion of courage lies in going on anyways.-- Robert Jordan (1948-2007), The Wheel Of Time

Man - that sucks.

I found his Wheel of Time novels to be very entertaining, and will miss the story.

In the greater scheme of things, though, I'm sure what he wrote doesn't matter as much as the people he touched in his life.

We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference,
ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time,
add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee

Fuck. His cousin denied that Jordan was getting worse just a week ago. It seemed like his sickness had gotten under control.

He's told the story of the final book to his wife. I selfishly hope that it will see print one day. But that's not important right now.

Wow. This just turned into a very sad night. Reading 2001 and Rendezvous with Rama as a kid helped shape me into the sci-fi nerd that I am now.
