Richard Adams, R.I.P.

Richard Adams
1920 - 2016

Richard Adams passed away Christmas Eve. He will be remembered mostly for Watership Down, which was probably read by more people than all his other books put together. (Not to mention those who saw the film.) But I'll remember him more for his other, lesser-known writings.

"You will come to regions more desolate and wretched than you ever dreamed could exist, places of sorrow created entirely by that mean superstition which you yourself have put about for so long. But still you will have to go on." --Shardik

A lost dog seeks a vanished man. --Plague Dogs
