In Memory of Jack Vance

It seems to me that many have not yet heard that over the weekend we lost author and D&D inspiration Jack  Vance.  From

"Jack Vance passed away at home on the evening of Sunday May 26, 2013, ending a long, rich and productive life. Recognized most widely as an author, family and friends also knew a generous, large-hearted, rugged, congenial, hard-working, optimistic and unpretentious individual whose curiosity, sense of wonder and sheer love of life were an inspiration in themselves. Author, friend, father and grandfather – there will never be another like Jack Vance."

It seems a bit of a shame that we have lost to of the great influences on old school gaming at once.  Harryhausen and not Vance.  You can write a memorial to Vance here.
