Sadness: Philip Jose Farmer

Hugo award winning author, Philip Jose Farmer died Wednesday. He was 91.

Nice tribute at PJS.com

I did not discover science fiction until I was a grown-up. His RiverWorld books were some of the first science fiction I ever read.

I haven't even read all of his books yet -- very sad as well, but he passed away so peacefully. What a lovely, full life and a good way to go.

I've never had the pleasure of reading him before but it's always sad when we lose a legend :(
