I just read Jack Vance passed away last Sunday (Obituary).
A SF/F writer (and 3 mystery novels under the name Ellery Queen), he influenced many writers such as Harlan Ellison, George R.R. Martin and Gene Wolfe.

I loved reading his books, rereading them more than the other books in my collection.

May he rest in peace.

It's nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.

Life is like a hot bath. It feels good while you’re in it, but the longer you stay in, the more wrinkled you get.

I change all my passwords to "incorrect". So whenever I forget, it says, "your password is incorrect".
