Robert Holdstock (1948-2009) died at 4am in the morning of Sunday 29 November, having been in intensive care since his collapse with E. coli infection on the 18th. He was only 61 and will be much missed. All sympathy to Sarah and the rest of the family.

Robert was interviewed on the 25th anniversary of Mythago Wood in IZ 224 and appeared in Interzone in 1991, 93 and 94
The Bone Forest #45, Mar 91
Merlin's Wood #84, Jun 94
The Ragthorn #74, Aug 93 with Garry Kilworth

I can do no more than reiterate Dave Langford's words and feelings.

Likewise. I was shocked to hear the sad news just a few minutes ago, via Jim Burns. I didn't know Rob personally but had the pleasure of speaking to him on the phone a couple of times, and he was obviously a lovely man. Deepest sympathies to his family and friends on behalf of everyone here at TTA Towers.

We've lost a fine writer and a fine man. Our thoughts are with Sarah and his family.

Just last month I hoped to win Mythago Wood and Avilion in Interzone competition, saying that Mythago Wood was one of my favourite books ever.
I liked all the sequels too, and some short stories and standalone novels.
Mythago Wood is one of the few novels I have read more than three times.
May he live and write forever in the next world.
