    The loss of another great writer, we can't afford to lose anymore until our youth learn to write again.

    He was only 66.
    [​IMG] He had manuscripts that maybe someone else can complete & get published. [​IMG]

    In the meantime, I've discovered there were several of his books from early years that I didn't know about. On a mission to track those down!!
