A trailblazing giant in the publishing world has died.
Dan gave me/Abernathy & Brown/Petrarca Press our start through his books and generous giveaways of priceless publishing info in the very old days by free return fax – his version of the WWW and the “sharing economy,” circa 1990. All you had to do was punch in your fax number and choose whatever you wanted faxed back – his system would fax back 100 pages if you liked!
And he went skydiving and landed on the North Pole. – http://works-words.com/NSM-WIKI/WP/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Dan-Poynter-North-Pole.jpg

Gratitude to you, good sir.
