  2. That's a shame. He was awful young to leave. I got to meet Mr. Asprin when he was doing a signing a few years ago at Dragoncon. Busy as he was, he took a few moments to answer a question I had for him. A great contributor to the genre, he will be missed.

  3. I never knew the author just a readier of two of his books Dragons Wild and Dragons Luck. I wish there was a way to see a third and final or more if someone takes up the choice to help his work that understood it very well and is able to continue it. It very sad that he has passed away and I hope he has had a calm sleep in the sky were all the dragon fly. He is my favorite author in fantasy and I wish that there was more he could give even in death. I do hope one day someone will continue his work in his name but until someone takes up anything let his soul rest peacefully and that dragon watch over him as one novelist that truly understood fantasy and all that there is to it.
