Bryce Courtenay coming to a conclusion

Australian author Bryce Courtenay reveals that his 21st novel will be his last

Sadly, he has stomach cancer.  However, he says he is prepared to die peacefully.

South African-born Courtenay will publish his 21st book, Jack of Spades, in November.  After that, he has only months.

He wrote on Facebook, "You will be pleased to know that I am currently feeling well, and am busy gardening, and writing a collection of short stories, as well as being with our beloved pets."

Working with plants and flowers shows a wonderful willingness to leave a legacy for others to enjoy, that he is unlikely to see.
