Anyone ever meet him at conventions? I always heard he was a friendly bloke, and in the few interviews I've seen he always came across well.

edit: Taz, I had the same idea the same time as you. I'll combine our posts.

This is sad news. I never got to meet him, but he was traveling doing signings and I wanted to meet him if he ever came close to where I live.
