Robert Asprin (1946-2008)
On May 22, 2008, Bob passed away quietly in his home in
New Orleans, LA. He had been in good spirits and working
on several new projects, and was set to be the Guest of Honor
at a major science fiction convention that very weekend.
He is survived by his mother, his sister, his daughter and his
son, and his cat, Princess, not to mention countless friends
and fans and numerous legendary fictional characters.
He will be greatly missed.
Man, the day of a sci-fi convention I am attending this weekend. Everyone is going to be bummed, including me. I loved his Myth series as a teenager and considered "Phule's Company" to be one of the more inspiring, "How to get a rag tag bunch of misfits into the best team ever" stories of my life.
Bye bye Bob. I always hoped we'd hook up, but we always were at different cons.
