Locus Online is reporting that Michael Shea has died. Shea was the World Fantasy Award winning author of Nifft the Lean and the novella “The Growlimb”.
I’ve not read Shea’s work. I picked up some at Worldcon last fall, but most of my acquisitions from that trip are still unread. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Shea’s fiction and have been looking forward to reading some.
John O’Neill has posted a tribute at Black Gate.
