This is so unbelievably sad. EHK, you will be missed. If/when someone finds any more information about this, please post it. Thank you.

Terrible news. :(

I met him in person at Glasgow Worlcon, just like on the board he was personable guy with strong opinions.

I will lift a pint in his memory.

Thanks Chris for letting us know and my condolences to you hand your family.

I am so sorry for your loss Chris. He was one of the best this board has to offer and he will always be remembered here.

I haven't had a smoke in 5 years, but I'll light one in your honor, Ser.

R.I.P Tom and thank you for all the good memories :smoking:

I've had a quick browse through his posts and I'm sorry I didn't know him better. His posts make him seem like a great character. I'm sorry for his loss.

I just can't believe it, it's so sad. :(

I had the great fortune to get to chat and hang out with Tom in real life, and he was a really great guy. That he should be gone is so deeply unfair. Words fail me. RIP EHK, you will be greatly missed.

I hope they allow smoking in wherever you are now.

If they didn't before, I'm sure they've been convinced by now.

Shit! I missed the sticked thread all day and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it. It's still hard to believe it's true. Like so many others, I always enjoyed reading EHKs posts on any and all topics. I was actually wondering the other day why he hadn't posted a rant on the latest True Blood episode yet.

I will miss him, and I am very sorry for his family and those who knew him betteer than I did.

A very sad day.

This man will live long in the memories of all ASOIAF boarders and is clearly a Board Legend.

RIP EHK.

I'm really, really shocked right now, and I have no words.

Sincere condolences to his family and friends!

He will be sorely missed.

Bloody Hell.

Like others, I am in shock.

We will sorely miss him. Most of us will have sometimes disagreed with him, but he had a combination of passion and eloquence that is all too rare, especially online.

My condolences to his family, who will of course feel his loss far more than us.

My wholehearted condolences to you and your family, Chris. I am so, so sorry that you had to deliver this news, but thank you for doing so. As you can see, EHK/Tom commanded the admiration and respect of most of the board for his eloquence, his take-no-shit attitude, his intelligence, his legendary rants and his love of beer. Mr. X and I even discussed trying to make it out to one of the beerfests that EHK used to go to every year, partly just to meet Tom and share a common interest. And now I've lost the chance to thank him in person.

RIP, EHK. You will be sorely missed. :(

Wow. I don't even know what to say. I saw a fellow boarder's Facebook status and ran here to see if it was true. This must be the first time I've cried over the loss of someone I never actually met in person.

I'll miss you EHK.

I never had the good fortune to meet him, but I always enjoyed reading his posts, whatever they were about. He was one of the most eloquent and intelligent people here.

RIP EHK.
