¡Feliz Cumpleaños, Karl Edward Wagner!

Born December 12, 1945. Died October 13, 1994.

He was a popular fantasy and horror writer who died way too young. He once described his work as "Robert E. Howard on acid" and his Kane series has managed to receive praise even from writers who aren't normally fans of the sword and sorcery genre. He won the World Fantasy Award for his horror novella "Beyond Any Measure" and the British Fantasy Award for his short story "Neither Brute Nor Human". Up until his death, he also edited the Year's Best Horror Stories anthology series.
