Dr. Kevorkian dead. Seems oddly appropriate.

Joel Rosenberg, SF/Fantasy author dead. Not so much. I liked his work, and there's one series of his that he never returned to that I really wanted to read more of. *Sigh*.

James Arness left us today, too. Perhaps that will be the magic three and Death will leave us alone for awhile?

Doubtful, dear. I am in a pissy mood, though.

Likewise, sad. Was it D'shai & Hour of the Octopus? I read a lot of the Guardians of the Flame, but I really thought he had something interesting with D'Shai.

I think it was the series that emulated Norse mythology, IIRC. I can't recall what the books were called...hang on...


Keepers of the Hidden Ways! That's it...

There were two books in that saga, and it was left hanging. I suspect that they didn't sell as well as expected (first book came out in both hc & pb, second only in pb), and the series was dropped by the publisher. *Sigh*.

His sister Dale, mofic, is on my flist. She posted about this today, too-it was very sudden and unexpected, apparently.

So I'd heard.

Sadness.

Yes, how appropriate that someone died. It's practically ironic.

Grumpy, are you? Perhaps you'd care to reveal yourself?

I really need to read the Guardians of the Flame series. I wonder if it is on ibooks or kindle? Hmm.
