It is with heavy hearts that we learn of the passing of our friend, published author and good force for the industry, Wilum Hopfrog Pugmire. Wilum was a genuinely kind and creative individual. His career in writing gave us many stories with brilliant and often poetic prose. A truly unique voice, W. H. Pugmire contributed to and expanded the genres and was a delight to work with. We will miss him, just as many will, but Wilum is immortalized in his writings and in our memories. Thank you for being a friend and a good person, Wilum, you will be missed.
