Over on fictionrants, heylifeguard had this to say on the subject of Robert Jordan's Wheel Of Time series:
I love the Wheel of Time books too, but I stopped at Winter's Heart (which book in the series is that? 10? 2872?)
Hopefully he will wrap it up and if he doesn't, then we will never know what happens because he'll die. Just drop dead in the middle of the last battle and we'll get something like "Rand, wearing shocking pink trousers with the words "Ain't no Pimp like the Dragon Reborn" in gold scroll work up the sides and a brilliant yellow flamenco top with red, green, and blue ruffles, channeled suddenly which was quite fast only not so fast as Elayne, who was wearing a tight blue ball gown with eleventy seven flounces and had gold lions on the sleeves, would have..." He's dead. No more WoT all we have is Rand in a Flamenco costume that went gay.
Context just wishes something would happen in this series before the author drops dead.
