bummer. He wrote some of the more interesting pulp and stories I've seen/read.

This is a good doc on him:

He had depression like his friend Robin Williams.

Funny how many artistically inclined people suffer from depression or some related malady...

The world is done...
But you don't have to be.
Darkness gathers around the light...
Hold on, hold on...
There is a Light--don't let it go out!

Love a lot of his work and his editing of Dangerous visions.

However I have read a lot of comments about him being an aggressive misogynistic arse far too often.

Can you separate the man from the art?

I will always like him because he used a bit of my poetry in one of his essays.

i'm with purplethunder on this. seems like a lot of successful writers have a touch (or more!) of personal madness going for them. so yes, i try to separate the work from the flawed human being who produced said art. that being said there are tons of them i wouldn't care to meet.
