Great writer. Sad outcome.

Unfortunately, I've heard from several reliable sources that he was one troubled, disagreeable guy.

Given the circumstances of his death, there can be little doubt that he had some serious personal demons.

The literary world at large just lost x number of great novels, though. Pretty solid blow.

I miss him, too. I just posted my RIP on my blog. I can't believe we lost such an amazing polymath. He's the one who taught me the word "ontological."

Amen, brother. Hated hearing this.
