I used to joke, innocently, that my biggest fear was he’d get hit by a truck or something before he managed to finish the series. It was meant to be a compliment to show how engrossed I was in the books.
Obviously I sure want to read that last book. More importantly though I hope he does whatever it takes to get well for himself and for his family.
The blog link I had just found the other day. There are entries going back for quite a while and I wish I had discovered it long ago!
/agree that the most recent book finally moved the plot along somewhat. The one before it had me beating my fists into the wall in frustration. 600+ pages and NOTHING happened.
