Redmond Simonsen Obit

This news will only be of interest to those of you who are familiar
with the staff of SPI (or who have memorized the credis page in their
copy of DragonQuest). I have just learned that Redmond Simonsen has
died.

For those who don’t recognize the name, he was the co-founder of SPI,
and was responsible for their graphic design and art direction.

Greg has some good things to say about Redmond on his blog. He was a
pioneer in the whole industry.
