May he rest in peace.

I'm afraid that I never enjoyed his books, though. (I'm not a gambler or a horsey person, so I wasn't the target audience.)

He fell off the horse a bit after he lost his missus. Whip Hand is still way up there in my canon, though.

Enjoyed what I read of him.

"You must be," said the Cat, "Or you wouldn't have come here."
