I'm sure a few others here are old enough to have seen Tommy Cooper go a similar way.

Probably the greatest shame is that Espers always stayed niche.  With Lloyd on art duties it is quite something.  Granted it does fall into a number of standard tropes but then again that may be more because in the intervening thirty odd years we have seen it so many times.  Well worth a read though.

Didn't realise that he did Harsh Realms too though.  Another guilty little pleasure but it is easy to understand why it was so short-lived.

I remember reading the Book of the New Sun as they came out when I was at school at the height of my D&D days, they were hugely influental.

These obituaries always throw up odd facts: "He was instrumental in developing the machine that cooks Pringles crisps"
