We regret to report...

News has reached the fandom that Guy "Decelaraptor" Payne passed away today. He was a brilliant, funny, and warm-hearted writer, and everyone who knew him says that he was even better in person. His passing is a loss to the entire fandom.

Tributes and condolences may be left at the above link (SFMB) or on PPMB.

I was shocked to hear this. Since leaving the PPMB, I had kept in touch with him through my deviantArt page. It was always a treat to see a new comment from him or read one of his poems that he had posted on his own page. It'll certainly be a sadder place without him.

I also had kept in touch with GP through Facebook. His passing is indeed a great loss.
