RIP: John Steakley

The Science Fiction world lost another one of its shining lights on November 27th, 2010, when John Steakley, the writer of "Armor" and "Vampire$", succumbed to a long illness.

Armor is considered to be one of the quintessential books about armored infantry.

Vampire$ was the basis for the modern-day film "John Carpenter's Vampires."

Rest in Peace, Sir. Thanks for the inspiration.

Here's Mr. Steakley's obit in the Dallas Morning News.
