I am so horribly saddened to hear that James Smith of the awesome, essential Dreams of Mythic Fantasy blog has passed. His family made a post with a link to his obituary HERE.
Some people try to be cool. Some people are cool without trying. James was the latter. James was always awesome in every interaction I ever had with him. Always. His passion for old-school gaming and the way he treated others was an inspiration to me.
My heart goes out to his family and friends. James, thank you for all you did. There is a hole in the OSR.
