Oh, God, am I responsible for this, too?

David Eddings has just died.

Let me reiterate what he, apparently, said all the time:  David Eddings wrote fun books, and if they weren’t Milton or Homer, it’s because they didn’t need to be.  A good time is an end in itself, and I had long hours of good times from Eddings’ books.  His were the first books that I raced through, voraciously; the first books that I muttered and complained about when the new ones weren’t coming fast enough; and the ones that made an indelible stamp, for good or ill, on my sense of story.

Thank you, Mr. Eddings.

Thank you.

    So sad…he was a rare one.

    I read all of the (seemingly) dozens of Belgariad and Mallorean cycle books when I was younger. I like his take on his own writing and I think that’s pretty accurate; literacy classics they were not, but they were a fun read for a teenager.

    Ok, could you do a bunch of posts about Stephanie Meyers? It’s worth a shot.
