Thomas M. Disch shot himself on the Fourth of July.

This had me on the verge of in tears, if only because that should be the first line of a new Disch novel. He was the best of the New Wave. The best. Which is probably why he ditched SF almost 20 years ago.

Yet another guy who died before I had a chance to shake his hand and tell him how much his work meant to me.

God damn it.

I had no idea he had shot himself, which breaks my heart. I have been reading his books since my mother gave me The Brave Little Toaster.

So I agree..god damn it.
