[Obit] Keith Parkinson

I forgot to post this last week, so probably most folks who would care have already heard it, but... what the heck.

Keith Parkinson passed away on Wednesday, October 26th, after a two year battle with leukemia.

Keith Parkinson, for those who don't recognize the name, was a very prolific and well-known fantasy artist. You've probably seen his artwork, even if you don't recognize it. He did the covers for Katherine Kerr's Deverry novels, for Weis and Hickman's Death Gate Cycle, for many of Terry Brooks' Shannara novels (and the Magic Kingdom of Landover books, too), C.J. Cherryh's Russian fairy-tale fantasies, a number of David Eddings' books and all of Terry Goodkind's 'Sword of Truth' books. He illustrated tons of Dungeons and Dragons modules, as well.
