|Thus Spake The Creator
Q: Will Moiraine come back from the dead since Lanfear
and Asmodean apparently have?
Q: Is Moraine really dead?
Q: Mr Jordan, please forgive if this is redundant, as
I just recently joined the conference. Is Moiraine well
and truly dead? or could her and Mierin/Lanfear reappear
at some later venue?
Why did you decide to remove (for the time being, I
assume) the character of Moiraine? Was it completely plot-driven,
or was it actually a way of reworking her character?
Q: Is Moiraine's E&E network independent of the
Blue or does it overlap. How do they report - i.e. does
Moraine have someone who collects messages for her?
Q: Is the Moiraine character going to come back?
Reports from signings
On Moiraine's death-or-not-death he answered "Read and Find out".
I chimed in later on to ask if "there was a physical resemblance between Cyndane and a certain height-challenged Aes Sedai". He said "We don't know yet." I think that means yes, which is interesting. If there hadn't been one, he could have said no, and he has written the descriptions of Cyndane ambiguously enough to prevent any proof either way.
Moiraine lost her list sometime between NS and tEotW. By the opening of the story, all she could remember was that there had been a name from the Two Rivers.
Ok, I got my book signed in Vroman's in
Pasadena, CA, today. RJ was extremely friendly, and
talked to everyone, laughing and even teasing a bit. One
could say he was "jolly".
