Robert Sheckley, RIP
Now this sucks. I've always had a lot of respect for Robert Sheckley. The Tenth Victim and its sequels, when I read them in high school, were revelatory, and it's an absolute crime that they've fallen out of print. I know that Sheckly had a hard run of it the last year or so, and I was sorry to miss the chance to meet him in person when he was unable to attend this year's WorldCon. Damn. He'll be missed.
