Another friend gone
Word came today that horror writer Rick Hautala died of a heart attack.

I knew Rick via NECON, a convention that I haven't been able to get to in recent years, due to finances and scheduling, so likewise I haven't seen him in a while. But the idea that he's gone is just.... I'm having trouble wrapping my head around the idea. He can't be gone, because ...

because, damn it.

Rick Hautala. 1949-2013

sorry for the loss of your friend..

Very sorry to hear this.

I am very sorry to hear this.

Dammit. I met him a couple of times and I like his work. Dammit.

Hugs, Laura Anne. Hugs. Dammit. So sorry.

He was a good guy, and will be sorely missed, yeah.

When Steve told me Rick had left us, last night, my reflexive answer was, "That's impossible."

So, yeah. He'll be missed.
