My Name’s Russell, and…

I’m here to explore the world of Robert Jordan with you, whether you have the backstory of Jain Farstrider or the wide-eyed wonder of a Novice. It’s going to be a great adventure!

It’s about thirty years since I took my first steps on the Quarry Road to Emond’s Field. I’ve traveled it many times since. My skin and bones may be weathered by the winds of time, but my passion for these books remains young and hearty. Age cannot deter my enthusiasm.

There’s lots more to read about me and The Wheel of Time as I re-tread its beaten paths with you. However, I’ve also written an introductory post about me and The Shining Walls if you’re curious. Please take the time to say hello in the comments whilst you’re there.

Before I start to babble on like a wool-headed idiot, let me show you what else is inside The Shining Walls

Until next time, may the Light shine on you, my friends!
