I am so sorry to hear that David Gemmell has died. I loved his books, especially Legend. That old warrior, Druss was an inspired character, one that has remained in my mind for years.

Yes, Druss was a great character, and one that I'm sure David Gemmell will be remembered for for many years to come.

By the way - I'm glad I found your blog - it inspired me to create one of my own. Have had much fun putting it together.
