Beginning around Book 7 I started to say he'd die before finishing the series. I never really expected it to happen though, just my native pessimism.

Stephen Donaldson just started a new Chronicles of Thomas Covenant... hope he's healthy...

I don't think you were the only one that was pessimistic about the series ever being finished. I think the sadder part was the fact by book 8, I didn't care if it ever got finished.

True. I stopped reading after book 8.

I traded the 3 hardcover books that I did have to the local used bookstore and got a first printing of the Uncut Stranger in a Strange Land.
