Thomas M. Disch (2 February 1940 – 4 July 2008)
It's always sad when a fellow wordie passes on, especially when it is at his own hand. Rest in peace, Thomas M. Disch. I hope you and Charles are together now forever. And f*** the greedy New York City landlords who are evicting some of my favorite people, fine writers, who can't afford their Manhattan apartments, as was the case with Mr. Disch according to Galley Cat and New York Magazine (with a nice photo of the man). You can read his final blog entries here and his book, The Word of God, published by Tachyon Publications (motto: saving the world...one good book at a time).
