A Horrible Trend

With the death of Tom Clancy, I've been thinking over the past year and it has been a horrible year!  

 

If I only selfishly looked at the list of authors who died this past year that I would personally deem as favorite (the list is longer if I added all authors of note), here are the ones I shall miss the most-

 

  1. Matheson
  2. Banks
  3. Crispin
  4. Clancy
  5. Pohl
  6. Heaney
  7. Flynn
  8. Vance
  9. Achebe
  10. Means 
  11. Baigent
