Awww. I haven't talked with him for over a decade. We only met at conventions. We were oddly teamed up by convention people on a couple of panels for a while. Now I guess we will not be able to catch up. Another person to put in the "I will miss them" category.
He was a great guy. We used to correspond regularly, and hang out in person at DunDraCon every year. He gave me more advice on my writing than I've even had the opportunity to use yet, and was always willing to give me feedback on my crazy ideas.
