Re: Umberto Eco

More sad news from the literary world.

Sheer coincidence, but I just started reading 'The Book Of Legendary Lands' yesterday. Typically Eco, a charming 'travelogue of the mind'.

Looking at my collection of his works, which is by no means even close to complete, I am again amazed at how he effortlessly moves through genres, spans such a wide range of interests with seeming ease. He must have been a fascinating person to chat with.

A voice that will be much missed.
