RIP Charles Saunders (1946–2020)

Sadly, news is circulating that Charles R. Saunders, creator of Imaro and a pioneering figure in sword-and-sorcery literature, has died at the age of 73. I corresponded briefly with Mr Saunders more than a decade ago. He was helpful and generous to me, in addition to being an engaging storyteller with insightful things to say. I highly recommend the adventures of Imaro to anyone with a taste for pulp fantasy.

He will be missed.
