Beware the Creeper!

Iain's life as a psychotic crimefighter

Paul Haines died today

I guess we were all expecting it but all of us hoped it wouldn't happen.

I didn't know him well, but he was always great to be around - and a fabulous writer.

Some memories and tributes from people who knew him far, far better than I did:

Chris Barnes

Ben Peek

Lots of tributes on twitter and facebook as well.

He will be missed.

Karen Miller's written a very poignant tribute to him, as well: http://karenmiller.livejournal.com/294628.html

There will, I think, be a lot of people who 'didn't know him well' but who nonetheless have a strong sense of who he was, what he stood for. I only ever met him twice, at conventions, and I'd echo your first two sentences exactly.

And, yes, he will be missed.
