The BBC is reporting that Redwall author Brian Jacques died over the weekend of a heart attack at the age of 71. Jacques wrote over two dozen of the Redwall books since its debut in 1986, featuring the adventures of talking animals in a medieval world based around the abbey of Redwall. I know the series has been incredibly popular here since often I can't find the books on the shelves because they've been checked out. If you haven't read the Redwall series for yourself yet, I recommend starting with the first, called Redwall, although many of the books can be read in any order. The Wikipedia page for the series lists the books both in the order they were published, and in chronological order within the series, so you can choose to read them any way you want.
