RIP, Sci Fi Author Jerry Pournelle

Glenn Reynolds offers a tribute here.

There Will Be War, volume II, which he edited and to which he contributed, is free today.  Apologies, but Volume I was free a couple days ago and it was worth it.  It may still be free.

Dragoncon is where he gave his last public appearance, just a few days before he passed in his sleep. Their memoriam page is short, and very interesting (he may be the first writer to have written a novel entirely on a computer).

This tribute is also worth your time.

If you have appreciated his work, you can post to a well-wishing page for his family on his blog at Chaos Manner.

    Oh, that’s a loss!

    I used to love his lucid columns in Dr Dobbs.
