Howard Hopkins - R.I.P.

It is with great sadness that we mark the passing of New Pulp author, editor and all around great guy, Howard Hopkins.

All of us at New Pulp Fiction have worked with Howard in the past and appreciated not only his talent and enthusiasm, but his professionalism, insight and remarkable skill. He is and always will be missed. Our sincerest condolences go out to his family.

It's fitting that his final post on his Facebook account is a poignant one that all writers, editors and fans can take to heart:

Some days it is more difficult being a writer than others. Some days the words won't come, or the ones that do just suck. Or maybe sales take a dump or somebody leaves a you bad review. Maybe the sound of your author "voice" sounds like nails on a chalkboard. But we need those days...because it is in times like that you either "hold 'em or fold 'em." It's when you grow, and know that, "Yeah, this is my passion, what I was meant to be."
