Don't you just hate spoilers? I do, too. That's why I always try to include warnings. However, I sometimes ramble a bit too much here or there and maybe a few (or many) key plot points slip without me giving proper notice. So I'd like to include a blanket spoiler warning for the weary internet travelers of the world: Here There Be Spoilers. You've been warned.

R.I.P. - J.F. Gonzalez (May 8, 1964 - November 10, 2014)

If you are a fan of horror then you probably know by now of the passing of J.F. Gonzalez. I read and reviewed Survivor for this blog quite a while ago and I had planned to read a few other books by him in the near future, but that didn't work out for me. In truth, I kinda forgot. I still haven't read anything by him. 

That's not to say his passing didn't really leave me feeling like I had lost another literary hero. In the days of the internet it's fairly easy to run into some of the same people online on different sites. In all of my digital encounters with Mr. Gonzalez he never once came across as anything other than a cool guy. Which made me want to read even more of his books. Something I still haven't done, I'm ashamed to say. 

It's tough to hear about his passing. 

I only read one book of his, but it certainly left a mark on me. A guy that talented dead at fifty? It's a sad world. A sad, sad world.

  1. I haven't read anything by him but he sounds interesting. I was looking at his Amazon page and will pick one out (just not sure which one yet)
