Joshua Guillion has died. He was a talented layout artist (Rise of the Drow, and many other AdventureAWeek products), a gifted reviewer, and a good friend.

I don't think many of my books would be as popular without his reviews and I was happy to get to interview him in Pathways #37 (which is free and you should go read.)

I also want to express my condolences to all his friends and family especially to the folks at AdventureAWeek.

Thanks for posting this here, Steve. After typing on my page, I needed to take a break. I'll say this anywhere - I've been blessed to know this man.

I didn't know him very well, but his reviews were always insightful and informative. This is a loss for all of us.

I remember after my first review he commented on it. For some reason that always stuck with me...

A serious loss for the community and he will be missed :-(

Wow ...

Josh and I exchanged a number of e-mails over the years and he always struck me as a really decent guy who was passionate about gaming.

He used to tell me how much of a fan he was of my illustration work (which really meant a lot to me) - when he had his stroke a while back, I sent him an original of one of my illustrations with a 'get well and hang in there' note and he seemed so genuinely appreciative ... it was really touching.

Really sad to hear he's gone ...

I really did not know him as well as I would have liked. I always thought there was more time ...

May peace be with his family.

I was a fan of his work--I'm really sad to here this news. Condolences all around.

I never really know what to say in situations like this. I didn't know Joshua as much as I would have liked to and it's sad to see him go. My condolences for his family and friends. The outpouring I've seen today makes it evident that he will be immensely missed.

Please don't beat yourself up over it. I don't think anyone really knows. :(

I never really got to know Joshua, but he was a major factor in my only module getting made, which I obviously appreciate. I was certainly stunned when I heard about his death. My deepest sympathies to his family and friends.

Ugh. Thank you for passing on the word Steven. I am sorry to hear this and wish the best for his family.

Woah. I never actually met Joshua, but having purchased a couple of his products and having gotten some rave reviews from him on a couple of Kaidan products, I almost feel like he was a friend. This is a major blow. Condolences to his family and friends.

Oh man. My deepest condolences.

I am shocked to hear this. He always did a bang up job and he was a swell guy. He will be missed.

You'll be missed, KT7fish.
