Sad news…

Ansible reports that Robert Holdstock has died at age 61:

Robert Holdstock (1948-2009) died at 4am in the morning of Sunday 29 November, having been in intensive care since his collapse with E. coli infection on the 18th . He was only 61 and will be much missed. All sympathy to Sarah and the rest of the family.

Holdstock was perhaps best known for his Mythago Wood cycle, for which he won the World Fantasy Award in 1985.
