[UPDATED] RIP: Thomas M. Disch

Sad news…

Ellen Datlow, Making Light and BoingBoing are reporting that SF author Thomas M. Disch committed suicide on July 4th.

Disch is perhaps best known to sf fans for his novels Camp Concentration, 334, On Wings Of Song, and to younger readers for The Brave Little Toaster. (Personally, I was thoroughly impressed with his debut novel, The Genocides). Disch was also an sf critic and wrote the books The Dreams Our Stuff is Made Of and On SF. He was 68 years old.

  1. I am not surprised. But I AM sorry. He was a very angry man. As someone who commented on his last entry (on his blog) said: the darkness was bigger than he could handle.

    Ce la vie, or not as the case might be.
