Back in time to civil war era with aliens and bad dad..

Looking for a story -pretty long one, where a student goes traveling and ends up in the past, western style - he find sIndians, and then his mother joins but his father is a KKK member and is sending stuff from the future with the help of rogue aliens.

I think you might be referring to Finding Peace by Celtic Cowboy.

The story was one that was unfinished at the time of the author's death September 10, 2013.

Yes.

This one. I had no idea he passed away.
Thank you for the link, and the information.

One of the few who have passed away, with the information added to their profile. Sometimes for whatever reason the blog posts get lost along the way while the profile information is more permanent.

I am not sure how that information gets into the profile section, maybe a site admin does it after being notified.

So far, of the ones I have seen here on SOL, someone close to the deceased has announced it either in their own blog, or in the deceased's blog if they have access to it, I am assuming a family member or close friend at that point.

At least we can still enjoy their stories even the incomplete ones. We just have to use our imaginations a little bit more with the incomplete stories. I have read this one a few times and enjoyed it each time.

I believe Lazeez does it whenever he's notified about an author's demise (usually by discussions here in the forum). A direct message to him is a better route, though.

I forget the date, but the author GoldenMage passed away a couple of years or so ago. At that time his son posted a note on the blog, but it has vanished for some reason.

I admit it was as much my fault for not sending a message to Laz about it at the time. The only reason I noticed it was because of following a couple of his ongoing stories. Of course those are now flagged as incomplete. Now I will try and remember if it ever happens again to my knowledge and send a note to Laz about it.

his stories are listed at the following:

send Lazeez an email - he may have the date ib his archives of the blogs, or he may not. Either way, he can adjust the profile

Okay, sent it with the additional information that his son had posted the last chapter of one his stories after his death. Asked if it would be possible to check it and place the death notice in his profile.

Well you've done the best you can to see the readers know - not much else you can do. Pity we can't contact the son to see about approvals o finish the stories.

True, but at least we can enjoy what he shared with everyone. I remember the last posting was done by his son, but I can't remember which story it was. I think he included a notice in that posting as well. (not sure)

Its funny somethings I can't forget and others I have trouble remembering.

If the son posted after his demise, it should be a simple matter to find which was last updated. Even if there wasn't a note at the end, the last posting date could be used.

I checked the listing at BTFH, and the last post was January of 2008.
