Is very frightening, especially number nine. The thing that makes George R. R. Martin dying before he finishes A Song of Ice and Fire is that someone will probably be hired to finish it and will only succeed in destroying it. That's not a knock against Brandon Sanderson, the guy enlisted to finish Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time mega-series after his death. I've never read the series, let alone Sanderson's contributions, so I couldn't rightly say whether his books sucked or not.
I am going to get so much nerd hate for not reading Wheel of Time. It's on the list. Right behind every other book I've been wanting to read.
