    The second signing session of the day was local, just a short drive up a rainy, traffic filled highway. This one had a Q&A session also, same restrictions on autographs though (two hardcovers, no personalization per trip in line). RJ seemed like he wanted to get going quickly for an early trip to the next stop tomorrow, so I only went through the line once.

    Robert Jordan

    In the Q&A, everyone was using the same questions that are answered in just about every Q&A RJ does, or at least recently: about writing female POVs, about compiling his notes, how does he store all the info about the plots and characters, etc... He did give some new info/answers on a couple of topics. He did repeat the tidbit about writing additional side stories that was on Wotmania today. He mentioned that he hates Apple computers because the early versions were not compatible with each other :p He mentioned if a mini series is done on NBC, there might be other sequel series on showtime or sci-fi channel.

    Robert Jordan

    RAFO.

    Got to ask two questions at signing part:

    Who killed Alric?

    Robert Jordan

    One of the Aes Sedai's Warders did, not a sister.

    Footnote

    Alric was Siuan Sanche's Warder who was killed when she was deposed in The Shadow Rising.

    Since you said at an earlier signing that the Dark One couldn't have brought back Asmodean if he wanted, was that at the time of Asmodean's death, or after that?

    Robert Jordan

    The Dark One couldn't bring back Asmodean because of the combination of two factors: HOW HE DIED and WHERE HE DIED. Not one or the other, both factors.

    Footnote

    The referred to earlier question was asked at the NYC Barnes & Noble signing on the Crossroads of Twilight tour.
