Robert Asprin, RIP

Just found out that Bob Asprin, author of the Myth Adventures series, recently passed away:

On May 22, 2008, Bob passed away quietly in his home in New Orleans, LA. He had been in good spirits and working on several new projects, and was set to be the Guest of Honor at a major science fiction convention that very weekend. He is survived by his mother, his sister, his daughter and his son, and his cat, Princess, not to mention countless friends and fans and numerous legendary fictional characters.

He will be greatly missed.
Man, he was one of my favorites; I think I've read just about everything he's ever written. Not only was he known for the Myth series, he also edited the early Thieves' World shared world anthologies, and was a gamer and SCAdian to boot ("Yang the Nauseating").

He will be missed.
