    Interview: May, 1995

    Austin Sirkin

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

    Robert Jordan

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

    Searles O'Dubhain

    I noticed that your other pen name is Sean O'Neal. Did you draw Mat's "Band of the Red Hand" from family stories?

    Robert Jordan

    No. That came from my mind twisting certain mythologies that I had read, certain legends.


    The pseudonym is actually Reagan O'Neal, not Sean O'Neal.

    Interview: Nov 10th, 2009

    Brandon Sanderson

    Brandon says of the five Redarms that enter Hinderstap with Mat that the three that seem unaccounted for when everyone else escapes are not "forgotten" and their circumstances are RAFO. He also said that he appreciates the finding of continuity errors so that they can be corrected before books go to paperback, but they are an unavoidable part of the business. He doesn't like when authors ignore continuity on purpose, but understands accidents.


    This was corrected for the ebook and later editions.

    Brandon Sanderson

    (Paraphrase) If Murandy had any significant forces, would they have needed to hire the Band?
