Good god. I had no idea about this. What a sad way to die for a man who starred in one of the greatest movies of the 80's.

Science fiction author; former BYTE columnist. During the mid-90s he was definitely enthusiastic about trying out new things that are dropped onto his desk. Remembered reading about him getting the first-generation Pentium-powered PCs and christened it the Pentafluge as it was lightning fast back in the day.

Three cheers to that great old man!
