Author Graham Joyce has succumbed to cancer at the age of 59.
Graham Joyce (1954-2014)
I can't honestly say that I was a reader of Graham Joyce's work, though his books that I did read - Dark Sister (1992), The Tooth Fairy (1996), and Indigo (1999) - were truly enjoyable reads for me, but very bizarre and strange in their own way. Lovely books, though. I always think of Joyce's works as being dark fantasy, maybe even very dark horror, but I'll leave discussion of his genre for more knowledgeable folks. Regardless, Graham Joyce's death is a blow to the literature field, and he will be sorely missed.
Rest In Peace, Graham Joyce.
