Bob was one of the first people from the SF/comics world I ever interviewed, way back in the depths of 1989. He’s a really nice guy, the first person I ever saw walk into a room wearing a Mexican wrestling mask (and helping birth my obsession), too naturally Subgenius to ever really be involved with them, and just a great guy. To this day, if I run into him in a bar, he always buys me a drink and sits and chats for a while.
Get well, Bob! We need your crazy dada visions – they are the only sane thing we have left in this world.
