    Second hit for me after Tommy. Big miss from the committee.

    Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    I have my eye on Caroline Graham... 89 years old and hasn't written a new novel in 16 years. Ten years ago was writing a novel that never materialised. No news on health for a very long time but surely not long left.

    Alan Bennett, perhaps? https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/dec/23/alan-bennett-2020-diary-reveals-growing-health-struggles

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2021

    Is he actually ill? Or just 81?

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2021

    John Harvey, author of the Charlie Resnick series of crime novels, is receiving radiotherapy for secondary bone cancer... that's pretty bad news, isn't it?

    AND now John le Carre.... A particularly sad 2020 blow.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2021

    Ok - personally I think Jeroen Krabbe was the main villain in that film but I see I have made a claim easily disputable based on the perception of the word "main"! I withdraw it immediately.

    Who Should Make The Deathlist In 2021?

    I am CONVINCED that Lee Child is very unwell. On recent interviews over the last year he's looked strikingly thin (he has always been slim, but never as near-skeletal as recently). He smokes marijuana unashamedly (pain relief?) and now freely comments on it (not sure if it's a new habit, but him talking about it is). He has recently handed over writing duties of his Jack Reacher books to his younger brother. He's had an authorised biography written and published. In a recent interview with that biographer from the Hay Festival she kept using language like "final", "last", and when I commented on it on twitter she even "liked" the post! The whole interview was strikingly elegiac. I may be barking up the wrong tree, but...

    Ackland's old no doubt with all the associated health issues but he doesn''t look too bad here from earlier in the year... https://www.devonlive.com/news/devon-news/legendary-devon-actor-joss-ackland-4061973 Yaphet Kotto may be the oldest surviving main Bond villain but does he actually have any known health issues? At 81 he'd be a bit of a punt without any...

    The Deathlist Howto

    I have had to register with my work email address (which I'd rather not, really) because the validation/verification emails just do not get delivered to my normal email address. I also can't change the email address back to the one I want it to be after having registered because there's a need for an email to be received at the email address that won't seem to receive emails from this site... ....can anyone help? Is there somewhere in particular I should be posting this question?
