Q.197

The literary world was shocked by news of his death by suicide (a result of his long struggle with depression) in 2008, at the age of 46.

At the time of his death, he was working on a novel and left a lot of draft material. His book editor was charged with putting it together as a book (which remains unfinished), which will release in April 2011 as The Pale King.
