  1. Such a sad passing and great loss for us. I was doing what I do every month like Speculative junkies and looking up his name on google and ISFDB to see if there was any new info on his health and if there was any new stories out or coming when I read I guess was the first report that mentioned he had died and it was a disturbing pill to swallow.

    I am very cynical about work from my fav genre(Horror) and Shepard is probably just one of 5 writers I look forward to new work from as I expect to high quality writing even if it’s a story that doesn’t appeal to me.

    Now I’m going to be a bit more cynical(Damn It)

    Anyway hopefully you have a story or two lined up from him(he was so generous with his stories to audio podcasts) and what is a pathetic shame, there are no audiobooks of his great work. Well I haven’t listened to the podcast just yet so hopefully you mention that and at least there will be some “Sweet” to follow the Bitter.
