Another great loss to the world of fantasy and imagination: Robert Jordan

September 17, 2007

While you may not be a fan of ALL of his books, you’ve got to admit that Robert Jordan‘s fantasy storytelling gave the genre a shot in the arm when he began “The Wheel of Time” series.

Now, just two weeks after the loss of Madeleine L’Engle comes news that Jordan, too, has left us. He was 58.

    Madeleine L’Engle died? I didn’t hear that, but been away from the computer for a while. Don’t care too much for Jordan’s works, but L’Engle’s Wrinkle in Time is up there with Narnia and Hobbit as far as formative books in my life go.

    Just a note, that Hobbit is an acceptable word to Mac’s spell check, but Narnia isn’t.


  2. I adored Madeleine, and enjoyed some of Robert’s work as well.

    Jeffrey, you take care of yourself!! We want you around a LOOOONNNNNNGGGGGG time, and not just so we can read more of Auralia’s Colors–but that is a very good reason too!! LOL!!
