Very Sad News Today...

I was very saddened today to hear about the passing of J.F. Gonzalez, one of horror's great authors.  I don't know anything about what happened, but I'm saddened by his loss and offer my condolences to his friends, family, and loved ones. 

I didn't know Mr. Gonzalez personally, but I did have the great honor of meeting him once, around this time last year.  I wrote a guest blogpost about it and the advice he gave me as a brand new horror author.  I remember him being warm, personable, and having a very wry sense of humor.  I regret now that I'll never get the chance to get to know him better. 

I'm not sure what the appropriate thing to say in a situation like this is, but when an author passes away we are fortunate that his work remains as a legacy and a way to remember him.  So maybe now would be a good time to pick up one of his books.
