I've just learned that my favourite author of all time, the SF/Fantasy writer, Jack Vance, has died age 96. You can read about him here:

If you've never read him, or never even heard of him, what have you been doing with your life? Go out and read his stuff right now! Boy, have you got a treat in store!

RIP...

I'll never forget reading The Languages of Pao as a kid. His were books I'd be sure to buy if I found them... even if it meant giving up something else.

Always a good read and thought provoking... the best of both worlds.

"Noise" is one of my favorite stories of all time. What a splendid teller of tales has left the room!
