Peter O’Donnell, the creator of Modesty Blaise, has passed away peacefully at 90.
Oh, damn. Good innings and a good death, yadda yadda – but still, damn. As you say: sad.
At 90, the news don’t strike me as that sad, but a bit melancholy, certainly. I raise my glass to him and his Princess, though!
This is an announcement I have been waiting for for years, but it is none the less poignant for that.
I know you can’t tell everything about an author from her writings, fictional or not; but from what I’ve read of his I’d like to have met him.
Crap. I wasn’t keen on his politics, but I loved the character and most of the books and strips.
