Requiem, Again

Damn. I follow sci-fi news pretty regularly. Yet it had escaped my notice until now that Jack Chalker died a few weeks ago. I find out on Plastic of all places. Plastic? What the hell is that all about? My usual news feeds have failed me.

Anyhow, I have a bunch of his books on the shelves in storage and have read much more. All of it is worth a read. The Well of Souls books I remember as standing out among his body of work.

All other thoughts aside, it is always a little melancholy when someone who has touched your life in a positive way passes on. The bonus of being an author is that you retain the ability to touch people after your death. Go and read his books. We all live on through our works, right?
