Just heard that author Robert Holdstock has departed from this reality. I don't really know much about him as a person, but his Mythago Wood novels made a lasting impression. Back when I first read Mythago Wood, late in the 90's I think, it was a very refreshing experience in comparison to the clichéd high fantasy I read much of back then. Holdstock, along with people like Neil Gaiman, taught me just how original and imaginative fantasy could be.
