« on: November 05, 2008, 01:48:55 PM »
A great loss to the writing community, and the reading public, as the prolific and talented author died on tuesday from cancer.

The full story is here: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/11/05/print/main4575403.shtml

He will be missed...

One of my favorites.  Seems we never keep the good ones.
I have a motto: when in doubt, go for the cheap laugh.

There's a great many of his works I've never read, but I thoroughly enjoyed Timeline.  It struck a chord...

My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.
