Goodby Sterling, you may be gone but you will not be forgotten.
Your books have been my travelling companions since the mid 1970s.
I know that you did not finish the Hiero series but I firmly believe that writings such as yours on a post apocolyptic society helped to reduce international nuclear tension in the 1990s.
My best wishes to your wife and family.

Hello folks, I just wanted to add my own personal experience to the recent discussion of SEL.
I am a screenwriter who has adapted the Brigadier Ffellowes stories for film/tv (website out there if you care to have a look) and have thus had the pleasure of corresponding with Sterling over the last 3 years. In my humble opinion he is without doubt a hugely talented writer, sculptor, book editor, and a generous and fascinating man. Both Sterling and his wife, Ann, have been enormously co-operative and supportive in the adaptation process. I will treasure this experience all my days. I wish them both the absolute best and it is my sincere wish, all personal gain aside, that Sterling's fabulous work makes it to the movies or to tv - and thus to a wider audience - in his lifetime. All best, Martin.
