Barrington J. Bayley, R. I. P.

Rick Klaw has the bad news here. I remember Bayley's work from some of the later Ace Doubles and DAW. I'm saddened to hear of his passing.

Maybe after only Avram Davidson and Jack Vance in the Baroque mode of Space Opera...and apparetnly more consistently good in that mode than either (inasmuch as the other men's best work is mostly in fantasy and to some extent crime fiction and horror, no slight intended...Bayley really that good, instead.)(I've read less of BJB than I intend to, mostly short fiction as I recall.)
