Like many readers of fantasy, I have always been mesmerized by the immenseness, richness and complexity of Mr. Eddings worlds, especially the Belgariad and Mallorean series, which follow the adventures of an orphaned farm boy named Garion, as he fulfills an ancient prophecy. The beauty of his world and words, the richness of his voice, the way his characters seem to walk right off the page and into our lives… I fear the world has lost a light today… his work may live on, but the man and mind behind it are no more.
May God bless his family in this, their hour of need.
