Will Tirion's 70th birthday
      #5678804 - 02/14/13 05:53 AM

... is coming up on 19 February. See his biography page.
Would be nice if we could all send him an e-mail on that occasion. I don't know him in person, but he has meant a lot to my favourite hobby.

He's certainly been a big help to me with regard to finding a lot of faint fuzzies! I wonder if he's a CN member?

I've always loved his work.

When I picked up a copy of Uranometria at NEAF a few years ago he was nice enough to sign all 3 books and add in a short hand-written message.
