Harriet McDougal, Tom Doherty, and Brandon Sanderson Tell the Story of Robert Jordan’s Life

Harriet McDougal, Tom Doherty, and Brandon Sanderson Tell the Story of Robert Jordan’s Life

What was the moment where Robert Jordan dedicated himself to writing? How did he meet Harriet and what movie did they see on their first date? What did Tor Books publisher Tom Doherty think upon first reading The Eye of the World, and how did Jordan’s life grow with the series?

This new video by Tor Books and Rock Soup Productions 2012 presents a touching tribute to James Oliver Rigney, Jr., the man that Wheel of Time fans know as Robert Jordan. Watch it below.

Watch the first video in this series, in which Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, and more discuss their love of the series.

Thanks for the stories, Jim, and Team Jordan, and Tom, and everyone whose contributions to the fan community have made my journey with the Emond's Fielders so special. It's been one hell of a ride.

Thank you so much, Tor - the content you've been sharing with the fans means so much. And thank you, THANK YOU also, Team Jordan! Without you, none of this would have been possible!

Is there anyway I can download the video? I live in China and can not access any Youtube videos.

Tom Doherty has such a friendly smile, if I met him on the street and he asked me for $100 I don't think I could refuse him.

I didn't begin reading the Wheel of Times saga until very recently. Currently, I'm 500+ pages into Lord of Chaos and plan to read every novel in this epic series one after the other. I mistakenly read a bit too much in Wikipedia today and spoiled some future occurrances for myself but such is the cost of seeking information. Fortunately, I quit doing so while I was ahead. That said, I'm going to wait to watch the video because I don't want to spoil anything else. I still have volumes of reading to do!
