Aaron Allston, 1960-2014

Grumpy
Author and game designer Aaron Allston collapsed and died of a massive heart attack, February 27th

While most of Allson's recent fame was in his series of Star Wars novels, I knew him best as one of the most prolific contributors to SJG's Car Wars automobile combat board game. Back in the 80's he was Steve Jackson Games to me, more so than Evil Stevie.

His loss takes away another fond creator of worlds from my childhood, along with John M. Ford several years ago.

Well, damn. Now I'm wracking my brain trying to remember if I ever took the chance to say I'd liked his fantasy take on Doc Savage.
