John M. Ford, 1957-2006

Everything I've ever read from John M. Ford was well worth reading and I'm very selfishly sad that there will be no more writings because there is no more John M. Ford. His novels are intricate and delightful things and he could just toss off these note-perfect poems in three styles at once and tell me that The Declaration of Unity is not one of the most beautiful wedding ceremonies you've ever read. Oh, poop to death.
