The King is Dead!

David Gemmell, the King of Heroic Fantasy writing, died last week at the age of 57.

Gemmell's books have been a source of imagination, inspiration and empowerment – reading his books were a delight and he is one of those rare authors to whom you can return to time and time again. And the saddest thing about his death is knowing that there will be no more books and adventures from him (I do believe he has the second in his Troy trilogy due for release this autumn). To us believers – he will always be a Legend!
