Neil Gaiman - Neil Gaiman's Journal: Important. And pass it on...

I knew a writer -- a great writer -- separated from and estranged from his wife during the last five years of his life. He died without making a will, and his partner, who understood and respected his writing, was shut out, while his wife got the intellectual property, and has not, I think, treated it as it should have been treated. These things happen, and they happen too often.

Mr. G doesn't say who the writer was. No fair guessing when I'm not looking.

Here's the pdf. Download file

Just sayin'.

I think that just about anyone in our community knows who Gaiman is talking about.
