I recently recieved a letter from RJ. I'm posting all of the info I think is worthwhile. Have fun!


"I wrote "Jak o'the Shadows" to the tune of "Gary Owen," but I suppose anybody can put the words to what they wish."


"No, I'm not opposed at all to the idea of a WHEEL OF TIME movie"


"Wait till the Guide to THE WHEEL is out and check a copy. There will be some stuff that isn't in the books. Maps, expansion on some material, historical notes, that sort of thing."


"The unabridged audio tape should be neat, nifty, and other outdated slang. It will be just what it says: every word of the books. I am talking with the audio publisher about having sections from a male point-of-view read by a man and those from a female point-of-view read by a woman. I think it will make it even better."


"I'm not signing any books soon, just writing one."


I hope this helps you guys out. BTW, anyone know the song "Gary Owen"? Just checking....

The song Garyowen is an old (200 yrs+) Irish drinking ballad that honored the men of the town of the same name. It is played like a jig (ie.fast) and the lyrics are as follows:

"Let Bacchus' sons be not dismayed,
But join with me, each jovial blade.
Come booze and sing, and lend your aid,
To help me with the chorus.

Instead of Spa we'll drink down ale,

And pay the reckoning on the nail,

No man for debt shall go to jail,

From Garyowen in glory."


Hope that helps a little.
Gaul
