Yeah it's sad that - he had a great gift for dialogue and created some very attractive characters. :(

I eagerly read and awaited David and Leigh Eddings books for years. Polgara and her father were some of my favorite characters in their works. I shall miss his presence in the literary world. I am happy that he lived to such a ripe old age though and hope that his time on this earth was good to him.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.
