RIP THOMAS DISCH

Thomas M. Disch:

An S.F. and Horror-writer who was a stalwart of the 60's New Wave/New Worlds scene. Hugely underrated and unrecognised, but not by Kid Shirt.

Fucking A. Apparently the final straw which caused him to shoot himself was his landlord trying to get the controlled rent overturned on his apartment after Disch's long term partner died. Guess whose name the flat was in?

The thing that really pisses me off about this though is that you can almost guarantee that that all the literary establishment arseholes who've ignored Disch for years will suddenly 'discover' what a great writer and poet he is now that he's no longer around to benefit from their attention.

Yeah, it broke my fucking heart when I read about it.
