RIP Lucius Shepard

According to SF Signal, author Lucius Shepard has died at the age of 66. 

I did not know Shepard personally, but he was one hell of a writer.  He was a writer of novels, short fiction, and non fiction, and all of it was excellent. 

Sad news. 

Depending on one's perspective, he may be best known for his Dragon Griaule stories.  I can't say that I have exhaustively read Shepard's work, but everything that I had encountered was compelling work.
