Farewell, storyteller  
RIP David Eddings.

I was a teen when I read the Belgariad. When Belgarath the Sorcerer and Polgara the Sorceress came out years later, reading them was like spending the afternoon with old and dear friends.

Your books helped shape me as a reader, and I daresay, as a writer. Many have followed in your epic fantasy of farmboy-becomes-King footsteps, but none have compared to my love for those first five books. You will be missed.

Wow! I'm going to miss that guy. His books kept me alive at one point in high school.

Aw, fuck.
