He will be missed greatly by his wife Bette, his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, friends and countless fans around the world.
I'd just like to say that the Riverword series is probably my third favorite series in SF/Fantasy (behind LOtR and McCaffery's Dragons, and just ahead of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever). Thanks, Mr Farmer. Rest well, and here's to waking up next to Burton or Clemens real soon. real soon.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.
