He was only 58, and was working on the 12th book in the series.

Wow... I used to be a huge Jordan fan, thanks to the "Wheel Of Time" series. Even though I haven't read any of them in awhile, I'm saddened by this. Apparently, he left lots of notes in case his disease took him, so that others could finish what he started.

I was, and still am, a huge fan. He was already working on the Audio Version of the final book, so that leaves hope that he had finished most of it.

A Wheel of Time TV "pilot" called Winter Dragon aired on FXX in a time slot (1:30 AM) normally reserved for informercials. It was an attempt by Red Eagle Entertainment to create something before their rights to the series expired (in literally 2 days). According to The Wertzone, it's practically SOP for them.

 

Harriet McDougal, Jordan's widow, was not amused.

 

 

"This morning brought startling news. A “pilot” for a Wheel of Time series, the "pilot" being called Winter Dragon, had appeared at 1:30 in the morning, East Coast time, on FXX TV, a channel somewhere in the 700s (founded to concentrate on comedy, according to the Washington Post).

It was made without my knowledge or cooperation. I never saw the script. No one associated with Bandersnatch Group, the successor-in-interest to James O. Rigney, was aware of this.

Bandersnatch has an existing contract with Universal Pictures that grants television rights to them until this Wednesday, February 11 – at which point these rights revert to Bandersnatch.

I see no mention of Universal in the “pilot”. Nor, I repeat, was Bandersnatch, or Robert Jordan’s estate, informed of this in any way.

I am dumbfounded by this occurrence, and am taking steps to prevent its reoccurrence."
