That’s terribly sad…

And I’m a horrible person because I want to make a joke about George RR Martin’s hobby of killing characters off… but I won’t.

Too soon?

Way too soon. I think it needs to wait until at least a week… though in my family we made jokes about my dad’s passing before the mortician came to pick up his body. I think he would have been proud. I just can’t assume that all families have the same sense of humor.

Book spoilers:

If I recall correctly, his character dies of old age fairly soon in the story. That’s probably about as good of a death you can get in those books.


#6

By all accounts he was a favorite among the crew and nobody saw this coming.


#7

That seems right, from what I remember. I’ve read them all pretty recently.

It’s very nice of you to mask the spoiler. Shame the mask doesn’t apply when people expand the comment you were replying to.
