I just found out today that artist David Burton passed away in December. I did not know David very well. David painted a cover for Realms magazine that was an illustration of my short story Lords of the North. I liked it so much I decided I needed to work with the artist and contacted him via his website.
As art director at Pill Hill Press I worked with David on a couple of covers, Shadows & Light: Volume II and The Ways of Khrem. He was a talented and kind man and his passing is very sad news for those who loved his artwork, and for those who can no longer discover it.
