  1. I’m heartbroken. He was a wonderful guy, the one time I met him, and I’ve chatted with him off and on over the years when I was doing more with Star Wars books. He’ll be sorely missed. :(

  2. He came often to Stellarcon, my home con. He was a great deal of fun and a wonderful guest.

  3. Very sad news. While weren’t close, I always enjoyed our conversations. Always a kind person with nary a negative word spoken. A consummate professional, whom I had the pleasure of working with on RAYGUNS OVER TEXAS.

  4. Oh no. Didn’t know him. Knew and enjoyed his work (including game books and tie-ins). MUCH too young.
