Got an email via the Daily Dragon asking if the rumors that Drew Hayes had died were true or not. 1. I had no idea who Drew Hayes was and 2. rumors? What rumors? Engaged my Google-fu and discovered he is (was?) the creator of the comic Poison Elves but not anything related to a timely or untimely demise. Anyone out in Internet-land have any info on the matter before I send a reply back to the effect of "guh"?

Still no title, but making good progress on the story. And, err, now I'm getting a little worried about the scope. This tale's beginning to push my initial word count estimate. *throws up hands in exasperation* Stupid muse. NOT a novelette, dammit. Certainly not a novella!

I am a huge fan of Drew Hayes. His comic poison elves, was the first comic my brother ever handed me and I was hooked. I too had heard a rumor that he died, but have not been able to confirm. He was/is very ill and has turned the comic over to someone else to write. So if he did indeed die, it wasn't necessarily a surprise as he has been very ill for a few years now. He actually wrote about his illness in one of his comics to explain his absence from the comic world.
You're quite welcome. Btw, I first heard the rumor at dragon con, which may explain why someone is e-mailing you from the daily dragon. There was a girl that was dancing with the pirate band thing one night and she had one of drew hayes drawings as a tatoo on her back and my husband went and complimented her on it and she said that he had died that Thursday. *shurg* If its true the comic worl lost an amazing artist
