Posted by Martin

The Oregonian newspaper reports the death of science fiction author Robert Sheckley on December 9 2005 at age 77.

Recovering from a May 2005 health scare while attending a convention in the Ukraine as Guest of Honour, Sheckley collapsed on November 11 after walking into Portland with a backpack of books. He was diagnosed with a brain aneurysm and underwent surgery on November 20. His books include Mindswap, The Game of X and Immortality Inc., which was adapted into the film Freejack. His short stories include the Batman story Death of the Dreammaster and The Seventh Victim which was filmed as The Tenth Victim ( La Decima Vittima).
