    Aw, dang. He was one of the good ones.

    Aye. Dunno if it was his biggest success, but the most memorable for me was him saving Dandelion in the Crack from PA.

    And, as the PA forums quieted, he was a regular fixture in Self-Publishing.

    He will be missed.

    So sorry to hear this. He educated many people, including myself, about writing and publishing.

    Just noticed this. I remember his posts well. Rest in peace, friend. And condolences to those loved ones he left behind.

    Ditto Bufty, above. I always read RG's posts, and always found them well-thought out and expressed. A great loss.

    Aw dammit. I've been mostly away from here for the past couple of years, so I just saw this. I too knew him from the PA forums.
