The Gore Vidal facebook page is announcing that he has died. He was 86. I've not read Vidal's novels--I have several on docket, including one of his pseudonymous mystery novels--but I recently devoured a good chunk of The Selected Essays. Like him or loathe him, the man had a wicked way with words. His interviews are pretty entertaining, too...and his confrontation with William Buckley is the kind of thing legends are made of: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYymnxoQnf8 Unfortunately, not many of his essays seem to be available online. "Tarzan Revisited" (1963) is a good sampling, though.
