For those of you who may not have known:

========================
Nigel Derek Findley passed away suddenly on February 19, 1995, at his home in
Vancouver.  He is survived by his loving partner Holly Langland and his
adoring family: Mother Audrey, and brother Rodney.  He was predeceased by his
father Garland in 1967 and his grandmother Dorothy MacLachlan in 1992.  Nigel
was born in Venezuela in 1959 and grew up in Spain, Nigeria, the United
States and England before his family moved to Vancouver in 1969.  He was
educated in England and at St. George's School in Vancouver.  He received his
BSc and BFA degrees from the University of British Columbia where he was an
active member of the Sigma Chi fraternity.  In 1990, after brief careers in
technical writing and marketing, he decided to pursue his true love, writing,
as a full-time occupation.  The literary legacy Nigel leaves behind him is
great.  Over the past 15 years Nigel has written over 100 books, including 12
novels, making him one of the most recognized names in the science fiction
and gaming community.  In addition, for the past 6 years, Nigel wrote for
High Tech Office column for the newspaper Business in Vancouver.  His quick
wit, inquiring mind, unique turn-of-phrase and enthusiasm for life will be
sorely missed by his family, his friends, his colleagues, and his readers all
over the world.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of
your choice.

===================================

Nigel Findly is known to Spelljammers for authoring several of the
supplements and scenarios, a few articles in the gaming mags, and
most importantly, the second and fifth books of the Cloakmaster
Cycle ("Into the Void" and "The Broken Sphere.")

Indeed, a very tragic loss.
