RIP Jay Lake (1964-2014)

Author, Jay Lake, passed away yesterday morning after numerous battles with cancer. He fought long, he fought hard, and though the disease ultimately prevailed, Jay still managed to produce a fantastic body of work in his 49 short years.

Jay was a wonderful writer, whose work was as much poetry to me as it was prose. I am deeply honored to have had a chance to help bring some of his visions to life these past few years.

Jay had a lot of friends in this industry, and touched a lot of people's lives. If you were one of them, and you want to make a contribution in Jay’s name, please make it to:
