Condolences to the family and friends of BlackIrish

I was shocked to learn from G Younger and Jay Cantrell of the passing of BlackIrish. As a new author, BlackIrish became the first SOL editor to volunteer to edit my work back in 2011. He showed me the value of having a good editorial team, gave me a smack on the butt, and sent me back into the game. He worked with me on Model Student but was in such demand as an editor that he was unable to continue on my work. He was, nonetheless, one of the people who have helped make SOL a place where we can both write and read stories that are above the norm in this genre. Thank you!

It reminds me, as well, to once again thank my current editorial team, Floyd, Old Rotorhead, and Pixel the Cat. My stories would be much less without your continued support.

RIP BlackIrish.
