R.I.P. Robert Asprin

Robert Asprin, the author of those Myth Adventures books we were just talking about passed away yesterday in New Orleans.

I was a fan of the Myth books. I also enjoyed some Thieves World, which he edited.

Ditto to the above. The Myth series was really fun, but the Thieves' World anthologies were groundbreaking. They were some of the first fantasy which seemed truly intended for adults that I ever read, and set the bar pretty high. You can't go back to the likes of Terry Brooks or Weis/Hickman after that.

Thieves' World set the stage for GRRM. (Who, BTW, needs to stop shitting out the Wild Cards books and get his ass back to finishing ASoIaF before he pulls a Jordan on us.)

There's still Wild Cards books being written? Holy crap.
