I read the sad news today that Robert Holdstock passed away over the weekend. He was a versatile and stylish writer whose novels covered a broad scope in science-fiction originally and later fantasy. I particularly enjoyed his early works such as Earthwind, Where Time Winds Blow and Eye Amongst the Blind. He though gained lasting fame for Mythago Wood, a rich story that has many levels and which has become one of the most analysed fantasy books ever written.
Holdstock died of an E.Coli infection. He was 61.

Yes, very sad - an infection caught while in hospital for a minor op, apparently. Age 61 - tragic. I have a number of his earlier works and used to correspond with him when he was involved with the BSFA magazines.
