I've just been told by my friend who told me about Carlos Ruiz Zafón, the author of the Shadow of the Wind, that he had passed away.

He passed on the 19th June of colrectal cancer aged just 55 years old.

The best series of books I have ever read.

RIP Carlos, thank you so very much.

RIP Carl Reiner, aged 98.

Probably recognisable to many as Saul in the Ocean's 11 series with George Clooney and co, but his collaborations with Steve Martin produced some of the funniest films I've seen.  How's this for a portfolio?

The Jerk
Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (genius use of old film footage to make a standalone story)
The Man With Two Brains
All Of Me

Good friends with Mel Brookes, another legend, and his son, Rob, was responsible for This Is Spinal Tap.

Not a bad CV to leave behind, IMO.
