RIP Jack Vance
I just found out today, like many it seems, that Jack Vance passed away Sunday. His Dying Earth stories are classics (even if I, personally, never really cared for them) and were highly influential not only to D&D, but to sci-fi and fantasy writers, which in turn influenced a vast array of tabletop games, video games, TV, and movies. So while I may not be the biggest Jack Vance fan on the planet, I'm still thankful for work and the indelible mark he's left on so many things that I enjoy. Rest in peace, Mr. Vance, and thank you.
