4 Comments on RIP :Tom Deitz

  1. Strange, I was just going over some of Tom Deitz book covers at Fantastic Fiction yesterday. Was he related to William C. Deitz?

  2. William spells his last name Dietz, so I  don’t think there is a relationship.  Also one was from the south, the other from the Pacific Northwest.

  3. I’m so sorry to hear that.  I was, and still am, a huge fan of the Soulsmith trilogy. 

  4. He was too young for his health issues. A rare gifted writer.
