bummer. He wrote some of the more interesting pulp and stories I've seen/read.

This is a good doc on him:

He had depression like his friend Robin Williams.

Funny how many artistically inclined people suffer from depression or some related malady...

Love a lot of his work and his editing of Dangerous visions.

However I have read a lot of comments about him being an aggressive misogynistic arse far too often.

Can you separate the man from the art?

I will always like him because he used a bit of my poetry in one of his essays.

i'm with purplethunder on this. seems like a lot of successful writers have a touch (or more!) of personal madness going for them. so yes, i try to separate the work from the flawed human being who produced said art. that being said there are tons of them i wouldn't care to meet.
