Passing of an author

I just learned this morning that Lloyd Alexander died May of 07. I was checking up to see what he'd written since I last checked. Its got to keep some love of your work to keep writing past 80 years old. When I first read the Prydian Chronicles I saw they had been written back in the 60's so I assumed he was dead and was very overjoyed when my wife gave me one of his books as a present that had been written just in 2005. His book were very formative for me, I'm sure I've read the entire Prydian series somewhere between 30-40 times. So I am sad to hear that I won't get anymore from him, but then again, I've barely scratched the surface of all the books he ever wrote.
