John M Ford has died.
This means that, as well as being 10 years late with this message I'm also too late.
Go out and buy The Dragon Waiting. Go now. Buy it. Read it. It's about the War of the Roses and Alternate History and Religion(s) and Vampires. You'll like it. Go. Go now.
Other things by John M Ford can be found online by going to this post at Making Light; I like the poem Cosmology, but I'm into that sort of thing.
