The prolific and bestselling author Wilbur Smith has died at the age of eighty-eight.
Smith, who died November 13, wrote forty-nine novels over half a century and sold more than 140 million copies of them, according to the Guardian.
His adventure stories were set in a variety of ages, prompting Stephen King to call him the “best historical novelist,” but all took place across the continent of Africa.
You can read more about his colorful life in the Guardian’s obituary of him.
