Herman Wouk, the author of such million-selling novels as "The Caine Mutiny" and "The Winds of War" died on Friday at 103.
The Pulitzer Prize winning author was just 10 days shy of his 104th birthday and was working on a book until the end, said his literary agent Amy Rennert.

Rennert said Wouk died in his sleep at his home in Palm Springs, California.


Wouk book Don't Stop the Carnival, about an American couple trying to start a resort on a Carribean island has been a favorite of mine for years.

There go my plans to have him sign my Winds of War first edition.
Further proof that procrastination of more than a few decades just leads to tears.

May this talented man rest in peace.
