Andrew's passing saddens me greatly. Not only was he an avid fan and contributor to Traveller and CotI, but he also gave me advice and consolation to help me dealing with my own health issue. I will miss him greatly, though comforted in the fact that I know I will be able to game with him when my own shortened time come and I take that final vovage into the Far Future.

RIP Andrew.

Andrew will be missed by a lot of people.

Default A sad loss...

Though I never met or spoke to Andrew, I've always enjoyed reading his posts for a good many years on CotI.

His passing will leave a huge gap in the Traveller RPG community.

RIP Andrew.

This is extremely sad news. I found out only minutes ago reading e-mail from facebook. Like most of you ,I never met him , but enjoyed his posts , and feel I've lost a friend.
Rest in Peace Andrew Boulton.........

As the calendar was always his baby maybe a Andrew Boulton memorial calendar with the proceeds going to a charity related to his illness.
Agreed... This is a great idea.

This comes to me and my father, (arbitrary remora) as a bit of a shock and we wish the best to his loved ones.

I, too. My world is both richer for having known him at all, and poorer now that he is no longer in it.
