    Terrible news indeed, it seems that good writers are fast becoming a rare breed these days. My condolences to Storm Constantine's family and to Mike.

      I have Silverheart but have never read it. Something I will need to correct.

        Same here, I'm afraid. Just fetched my copy from the bedroom. This year, I really am going to read more books & spend less time fretting myself at the edges on the interweb.

          Came as a bit of a shock. I first picked up Calenture in the cancelled books of a local library. Then later I picked up The Fulfilments of Fate and Desire in a bookshop, and was hooked. The Wraeththu trilogy's full of gallows humour. Silverheart's good - you'll enjoy it. I've also read her Grigori trilogy - it's not as good, imo, as the Wraeththu trilogy. But it's still got its very good moments - Stalking Tender Prey starts out very, very atmospheric, and continues in the same vein - I remember being a bit disappointed by Stealing Sacred Fire. But, YMMV.

          Still, ka pū te ruha, ka hao te rangatahi - The old net is retired, the new net goes fishing ... (to quote a Maori proverb that seems apt.)

          Gold is the power of a man with a man
          And incense the power of man with God
          But myrrh is the bitter taste of death
          And the sour-sweet smell of the upturned sod,

            I mainly knew her through Silverheart, her 2000 novel collaboration with Michael Moorcock. I had written my first novel, Hinterland, and struggled to ...

            Post move failed: so a "quote" instead! Sorry Sir Barbican!
