It is with great sadness that I write this post. I just learned that Lovecraftian author Adam Niswander has died.
Many knew him longer and better than I, but I am proud to count myself among his friends. We had several great chats the past few months. He was a very kind to me. He trusted me enough to tell me the plot of the novel he was working on when he died. It is a very beautiful and haunting story. I know he shared it with other friends as well, but he asked me not to talk about the book, so I won’t. I hope someday to be able to read it.
A few weeks ago, I asked him if he would like to be a part of the Sunday video chats. He appreciated that I asked, but said he did not have a webcam or a microphone.
IF you all think it is a good idea, I would like to dedicate next Sunday’s video chat to Adam. All who knew him would be welcome. It would be nice just to talk about Adam, his writing, and what he meant to all of us.
Your thoughts? Please comment below.
It’s so hard to believe. I spoke with him only a few days ago.
We miss you already, Adam.
UPDATE: W.H. Pugmire posted this video and I want to share it here. Adam Niswander remarks on how he would like to be remembered at the Mythos Con 2011.
