David Gemmell Remembered

As I’m sure most of the readers of Jack of Ravens will already know, the fantasy genre lost one of its most accomplished and popular writers when David Gemmell passed away on July 28th.

Juliet E. McKenna has posted links to various newspaper obituaries on her blog, and I’ve added links to a few additonal items to the article that I posted on the day, over on The Alien Online. And 418 people to-date have signed the online book of remembrance that will eventually be printed and passed to his family.

Always sad to lose an author, but particularly one who was both so prolific and so consistently good at providing his fans with exactly what they wanted to read – action, adventure, heroism, honour, love, redemption – time after time.
