  David Gemmell Dead

Fantasy writer David Gemmell died two weeks after a bypass heart surgery, at the age of 57. Here's the BBC link:

This is sad news. I'm sure he had some more books in him to share with his readers, that now will never get written. Like the third book of his Troy trilgoy.

I don't know what his personal belief is, but may the Source guide him to whatever place he wants to be. My condolences go to his wife and two children.

The Lost Fort is a blog based on my travels in Germany, the UK, Scandinavia, and other places (like Flanders and the Baltic States), with essays on Roman and Mediaeval history illustrated with lots of photos of old castles, cathedrals, Roman remains, and beautiful landscapes. You may also find the odd essay about geology or Mediaeval literature.

Location: Germany

I'm a blogger from Germany with a MA in Literature and History which doesn't pay my bills, so I use it to research blogposts instead. I'm interested in everything Roman and Mediaeval, avid reader and sometimes writer, opera enthusiast, traveller with a liking for foreign languages and odd rocks, photographer, and tea aficionado. And an old-fashioned blogger who hasn't yet gotten an Instagram account. :-)
