Didn't recognise the name, then saw from the photo that she was Mary from the shop.  RIP

Oh no - seeing reports that Si Spencer has passed away at only 56 - this is horrible news if correct.

Sad news about Si Spencer :(
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

Thats a wonderful write-up for a great writer. Reading The Returners tonight is going to be a very strange experience.

Thoughts with his friends and family.

Awful news about Si Spencer. A true original, his Masque of the Judge, Death with John McCrea made a big impression on me all that long way back, and it was great to see him make his return to the Meg over the past few years. And of course both halves of the Creep team have now left us far too young. My sincerest sympathies to his family and friends.

A great lose, Si Spencer was always a charming person to speak to and always seemed to have time for others

His work on the Dreaming and Hellblazer was some of the best things to come out of DC for a while

Well that's just typical of the hypocrisy of American Conservatives. He claimed he was pro-life.
You may quote me on that.

Just catching up here. Very sad news about Si Spencer. 

Limbaugh - well, it sucks for his family, but I can't say I'll miss him.
