Just pulled my copy of Doc Savage: His Apocalyptic Life down off the bookshelf last night. (A book I highly recommend, by the way)

RIP

Well put, JB.

Farmer elegantly wrote about Extraordinary Gentlemen mixing before Moore even gave it a thought.

I am a fan of much of his work. Though, honestly, I thought he was already dead.

RIP

He didn't really die, you know. He'll just re-emerge farther down the River. He'll be off having adventures with Sam Clemens and Sir Richard Burton before you know it.
