I just got home from work a bit ago to find that David Drake, author of Hammer's Slammers, RCN, Ranks of Bronze, and a bunch of other stuff in various genres, has passed away in his sleep earlier today.

Rest well, Mr. Drake. You've earned it.

(And yet again, only popping up to report someone has died. I really need to get out of that habit. 😛 )
Terribly sad, he was a giant, almost his generation's Robert Graves. And he was a joy to follow online, someone whose opinion you could always respect no matter what it was.
