Robert Jordan
Logan's favorite author, Robert Jordan, died on Monday, September 17th at the age of 58. Logan's sister got Logan to read Robert Jordan's Eye of the World which became the first book Logan read for fun and liked. Logan since started to love reading fantasy books. He has read all 11 Robert Jordan Wheel of Time books and branched out to a bunch of other fantasy series whenever there was a wait for the next Jordan book.

Robert Jordan was born October 17, 1948 as James Oliver Rigney Jr. He was an Army veteran serving 2 tours in Vietnam. After Vietnam he attended the military college Citadel. James eventually because a civilian nuclear engineer for the Navy after graduating from the Citadel with a physics degree. In 977, the year Logan was born, James started writing novels. Using the pen name Robert Jordan, James wrote the Wheel of Time series consisting of Eye of the World, The Great Hunt, The Dragon Reborn, The Fires of Heaven, Lord of Chaos, A Crown of Swoards, The Path of Daggers, Winter's Heart, Crossroads of Twilight, and Knife of Dreams. The twelfth book of the series was supposed to be the end and hopefully will be finished close to the way Robert Jordan would have written it. There are articles on the internet that say that Robert Jordan left an outline and how he was going to end the series with his wife.

Robert Jordan died from complications from primary amyloidosis with cardiomyopathy. He suffered from a rare blood disease that caused the walls of his heart to thicken.

Logan will miss his favorite author, Robert Jordan.
