David Eddings burns his office down

“I was down in my garage when it happened,” David Eddings told

reporters outside the smouldering remains of his office in Carson City,

Nevada, “making reparis to my broken-down Excalibur sports car. I was

using water to flush out the gas tank when some fluid started leaking

out, and I began wondering what the hell it was. I didn’t want to leave

a tankful of gasoline slowly leaking onto the garage floor, so

I lit a

piece of paper and threw it into the puddle of liquid, to test if it was

flammable. In retrospect, I can see that this was a lapse of judgement

on my part
