We received this very sad news from Minneapolis today, from CSTS supporter Felicia Herman:

Quote:
I wanted to let you know about the passing of my husband, science-fiction/fantasy writer and human rights advocate Joel Rosenberg, on 2-July-2011. He was one of the Big Damn Hero sponsors (3 times over) for the 2007 showing in Minneapolis.

Joel's first viewing of Serenity in the year of its initial release truly inspired him. He could hardly resist turning acquaintances old and new onto the movie and tv show. He sensed a kindred spirit in Joss Whedon's work.

During this past year, his personal motto was, "I aim to misbehave."

Joel Rosenberg is also well known for his Guardians of the Flame fantasy series, and many other books, including SF and mysteries.

He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten.
