Hi I re-read both of these during the last week as was in bed with flu like cold. I really enjoyed the both of them again. So well written and both super tales... Richie Ryan is surely sadly missed.

I totally agree.

Not only did Richie write wonderful stories, he was a lovely person.

WWA so impressed me that I contacted him and we exchanged several emails. When I first started writing (NAE) he was extremely encouraging and helpful, even editing some of my chapters. We stayed in occasional contact for several years.

Hearing of his death made me very sad.

I have now met, sometimes in person, several; rather good authors who have died. What one can say for sure is that their names, pen names, will live on.

Paulj, thanks for reminding me of those two wonderful stories. Almost makes me wish I had the flu so I could re-read them. I'll always think the story needed to go on with a future for Richie and TJ. Anyway, thanks Pauj for reminding me of that wonderful story
