Why Am I So Often Late on Authors

Stieg Larsson is a classic example.  At least I discovered "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" before it became all the rage. The problem is, he up and died.  The nerve.  He wrote 3 books I loved, and died. RIP Stieg Larsson.

Again I find myself thoroughly enjoying a different set of books and just discovered the author died three months ago. These are the medical forensic books placed in 12th century England written by Diana Norman under the pen name of Ariana Franklin.  Fortunately Ms. Norman was 77 when she died and had a long life, as opposed to Mr. Larsson. Unfortunately for me, I'll never have the joy of reading more of her "Mistress of Death Series."

That's always my problem too. I loved Roger Zelazny's "Amber" series, then found out he was gone. Zena Henderson, same thing. One of the things I love about SheepThrills is the diversity of people, finding new authors to read. FUN!
