So Long Friend…

Justin Macumber in 2013 at Space City Con Showing off a couple of his books

Tonight I received word that someone I hope I could call friend passed away. Above is a picture I took of him in 2013.

I was fortunate¬†enough to meet Justin Macumber twice in person. The first time was at DragonCon of 2010, after the Dead Robots’ Society¬†live episode. I’m not sure if he remembered meeting me there, however, in 2013 we met again at Space City Con and had breakfast with David Wood.

I remember we talking to him about things I believe we had both learned from The Creative Penn podcast regarding how outside of the US, Kobo was a big deal.

Among other things, I wish I had gotten to know him better.
