David Thompson's Signature

David Thompson, co-owner of Houston’s Murder by the Book bookstore, passed away yesterday at the age of 38. I met him at ConMisterio in Austin back in 2006. This was also the convention where the anthology Damn Near Dead, from David’s Busted Flush Press, was launched. I got him to sign my copy, though he didn’t have much room crammed in between some of the other signatures. Or maybe he just wanted to let them get the attention.

He drew a little arrow to Busted Flush, I suppose to remind me who he was. As if we could forget.
