RIP David Eddings :(

David Eddings, a true gem amongst fantasy authors, has pass away at the age of 77. Best known for The Belgariad series, David has inspired lots of authors to follow him. He was known for writing longhand rather than using typewriters or computers.

This makes me so sad ... Eddings was 2nd author whose work I completely fell in love with. I read the Belgariad in elementary school and the Mallorean later on. Polgara is still one of my all time favorite characters. Eddings will be sorely missed.
