Bummer News Via Grodog (Via Jeff Grubb/Matt Forbeck)

Mike Cook, TSR alumnus, passed away of a heart attack.  I hate this kinda news as there is never anything good in it.

From Matt Forbeck:  "Through Jeff Grubb, I learned that Mike Cook passed away last week, a victim of a heart attack on the evening of his eldest son's graduation from high school. He was 60.

Mike was an executive at TSR in the '80s. Among many other things, he served as publisher of Dragon Magazine and Dungeon Magazine, and he helped design the first Buck Rogers RPG.

The memorial service is this Friday in Waukesha, WI. You can read a
short obituary here:

We are definitely entering the 'bad years' for such losses, I'm afraid.

Condolences to all close to him.

Dragon and Omni were my first magazines...
