My father passed away today. It wasn’t unexpected, he’d been ill for quite some time. He always supported me in my writing and was one of the first pledgers for Elite : Reclamation, despite knowing that he almost certainly would not live long enough to read the book. Sadly that’s turned out to be true.
I’ll be dedicating Elite : Reclamation to him. He got me started in Astronomy, Photography, Space and Computers (he built one in 1978 from scratch, long before the kits became available in the UK).
In orbit around Chione I hope to have “Hiram’s Anchorage” as the orbital space-station. Perhaps you’ll dock there one day in game and give him a nod of appreciation.
