    I didn't know he was only 57, sad news indeed. I first read Legend back when I was in college, and I've always enjoyed reading his books. The world of fantasy literature is a poorer place with his passing.

    :( R.I.P.

    Is this the Legend as in the one that was made in to a movie with Tim Curry as the demon?

    No offense if not, i'm just not 100% familiar with his work.

    no, i'm not familiar with that tim curry film but legend (his first novel published in 1984) was never made into a film.
