Rusalka (Rusalkii) | 12988 comments Not sure if you guys heard about this or not, but the novelist Bryce Courtenay passed away last night.

Very sad, but the thing I wanted to share was this was a very short video that he made about 10 days ago for the people who had read his books, and I know some of you had read him for your rainbows or various Around the World challenges.

Connie (Ava Catherine) | 4258 comments How very precious he is. I love his books, and he is a sweetheart. How sad for the world that he is gone; he shall certainly be missed. Thank you, Rusalka, for posting this video.

Kimberly | 2033 comments I heard bout his pasing a few ours ago, it's so sad. I haven't read his books yet but my Dad is a huge fan. At least he isn't suffering anymore. It seems this year has been a bad year for authors passing aay.

Connie (Ava Catherine) | 4258 comments I do so agree with you, Janice! Did you see the video when he talks about writing the book about his son who died from a contaminated blood transfusion? Broke my heart!!

It is on the site Rusalka gave us. The book is April Fool's Day.

Kat (KatZombie) | 2478 comments Oh that is sad news. He was one of my favorite Australian authors.

Four Fires was one of my favorites of his.

Thanks for sharing Rusalka.
