Barrington Bayley obituaries

Science fiction writer Barrington Bayley died last month at the age of 71. There are obituaries on Locus Online, The Times, and by Michael Moorcok in The Guardian.
Barrington Bayley, who has died aged 71, was a writer of metaphysical, absurdist "space opera" - the science-fiction subgenre of epic adventure/romance stories set in space. He was perhaps best known for those he inspired, among them the writers M John Harrison, Iain M Banks, William Gibson, Bruce Sterling and the so-called "cyberpunks".
There's lots more information about Barrington Bayley on this fan site.
