I saw on Neil Gaiman’s blog the sad news that Robert Sheckley has died. I spent a very pleasant afternoon with him once doing an interview for Reality Break at his office in Portland OR. He was a great writer and a really nice man. I consider myself lucky that I had that kind of opportunity to spend a little time with him and really wish I had known him much better. At least we still have his large and wonderful body of work to read.
Goodbye Bob, and rest in peace.
