Sad News

Harry Horse, a British children's author and cartoonist, recently died with his wife in a suicide pact.
Seven years ago, he won the prestigious Smarties Book Prize in the six-to-eight category with The Last Gold Diggers, his tale of a grandfather and a dog named Roo. Another of his books, Little Rabbit Lost, won the Scottish Arts Council's Children's Book of the Year award in 2003, while one of his most popular works, The Last Polar Bears, was turned into a 30-minute animated film.
Neil Gaiman knew him and reflects a little.

What an enormous loss. I can't possibly know the horrors he went through, but I'm so sorry that he didn't have whatever support it would have taken to continue on without her.
