Now, some of you may be asking "Who is this Robert Jordan Guy anyway, and why all the fuss?" Well, for the answer to this and all your other Wheel of Time questions, check out The WOT FAQ, a nice little half-meg document which is a must read (Really!). If the WOT FAQ doesn't sate all your Jordan-esque desires, take a look at Zeynep Dilli's "Compleat" WOT Index--Your one-stop location for all your RJ needs! If it's just been too long since you got a WOT fix, check out the "Strike at Shayol Ghul" short story, which is stored at the TOR homepage.
If you love tWoT (and who doesn't?) you have got to check out the page for the awesome PC game The Wheel of Time. Personally, I LURVE this game, and I encourage you all to give it a try.
Speaking of Games, you might also want to take a look at the WOT Role Playing Game published by Wizards of the Coast. The game is based off of the d20 system that WotC developed for DnD 3rd Ed., and it's a very cool game and a very cool book, in general.
Anyway, Robert Jordan has been enough of an obses^H^H^H^H^Hinfluence on my life that I couldn't get away without putting up a web page in honor of his masterpiece, the WOT series. In fact, my ob^H^Hinterest in Robert Jordan's books has been so pervasive that my wife has taken to crying "His mistress" whenever I mention the Books. So go to your neighbourhood book store and pick up a copy of "The Eye of the World." All I ask is that you stick through the first 5 chapters, cause it's a non-stop roller coaster ride from there!
If you're already a WOT fanatic (like me), and you've slogged through all of the WOT FAQ (well worth the effort), but you've still got questions and you're just aching to get in touch with some other Jordan readers, you might want to jump in to the Robert Jordan Usenet Newsgroup at rec.arts.sf.written.robert-jordan. Of course, like any newsgroup, you should read the rasfwr-j FAQ (last one, I promise!) before you jump in and start posting drool and gibber all over the place. To get an idea of what might happen to you if you don't read the FAQ's, here's a recent, um, discussion between John S. Novak III and an obstinate nettiquette abuser. For a review of the newsgroup in all it's splendor, take a look at Karl-Johan's.
Well folks, enjoy, and happy reading!
