For those who are interested:

"Tor Books announced today that novelist Brandon Sanderson has been chosen to finish the final novel in Robert Jordan’s bestselling Wheel of Time fantasy series....The new novel, A MEMORY OF LIGHT, will be the twelfth and final book in the beloved fantasy series which has sold over 14 million copies in North America and over 30 million copies worldwide."

(From the press release)

Wow. Great for Brandon! I was expecting someone more established, or already connected to Jordan, but this could be Tor's bid to put Sanderson and his original work on the bestseller landscape for the next decade or two to come.

Very interesting.
He seems a logical choice to me.

I personally never read the Wheel of Time books, but I have friends who love them, and one can't deny the impact they have had on the field.
So you think this is a good thing?
From what I know of Sanderson's work, and of his own love of the Wheel of Time series, I do think this is a good thing, yes.
In one of those "small world" coincidences, I just found out that Sanderson was Ken Jennings' (of Jeopardy! fame) college roommate.
