I haven't been able to access my email for a couple of days and have just learned of the death of Frank Frazetta, the greatest fantasy artist of all time.
His drawings of Conan and Tarzan filled my teen years with delight and helped sell a lot of books as well.
Although we never met in person, we corresponded for a while in the 70s. Our last correspondence was a note from Ellie, his wife a few years back.
There will never be another one like him. With his passing, another portion of my youth has slipped away.
