Morgan “The Morgman” Holmes pops along a news article — startling enough it provokes my jaded sensibilities.
Turns out the Sword-and-Sorcery — later Sword-and-Soul — author Charles Saunders died at some undetermined point in May of 2020, but when his body was found there was no contact info for friends or relatives.
His corpse was labeled as “unclaimed remains” and buried in an unmarked grave.
If interested in the saga of Saunders, make sure to check it out. One way or the other, it looks as if his greater or lasting rep will play out posthumously — as it did for the founder of S&S, Robert E. Howard.
