We here at the DGLA are deeply saddened to hear of the death of our friend, Robert Holdstock.
Rob was a staunch supporter of the Awards & attended the ceremony in June (where this lovely picture was taken). He knew David very well and told me that they were born just one night and one mile apart on consecutive nights - 1st & 2nd August - the Fantasy stars must have been in the ascendant then! Ever the gentleman, Rob insisted on paying for his ticket, despite the fact I assured him we'd be honoured to have him attend the event.
Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.
If you would like to add a a message of condolance to Rob's website, you can do so HERE.
