I just found out that Fable, one of my favorite authors, has had to bow out from writing (I *think* due to health issues but whether from health or just RL, it's a tremendous loss). Fable has been very prolific and wrote one of the best series I've ever read on SOL: Burr. It is an incredibly engaging and complex tale that I can't recommend enough -- even if it's never going to be completed...it's just that good.
So, if you get a chance hop over and read it, I recommend it. Otherwise just keep Fable in your prayers (to whatever deity you hold dear)/well wishes that he might find success in whatever his next endeavors are.
