“I just consider myself incredibly fortunate to have worked with the man. Steve was passionate about what he was writing and he put everything into it -- his writing was infused with his character, his wit, his anger, his optimism and his pessimism. His work was social commentary disguised as genre entertainment and he was the best in the field at that type of work. Like is often the case with creative giants, their contributions to the art form are not fully appreciated until they are gone.
“He'll be missed.”
