Jack Vance died a couple of days ago and I didn't find out until today. For those of you unfamiliar with him, he was one of the most productive and amazing fantasy writers I've come across. I guess I say that a lot about writers, but Vance really was unique.
If you haven't read anything of his, start with his Dying Earth stories.
He is the origin of the often maligned D&D spellcasting system as well as several spells and magic items, including the Prismatic Spray and ioun stones, which were lifted from the Dying Earth.

Several glasses containing alcohol will be lifted in his honor tonight.
