He's Gone to a Better PlaceKieron Gillen announced late last week that he was leaving Rock, Paper, Shotgun.

Kieron's always been one of my favorites. He's a terrific writer who just happens to play games, and I've greatly enjoyed his work. His pieces have an energy that reminds me of a river always threatening to jump its banks.
Now, if you somehow haven't been lucky enough to read his work, this link is an excellent cure--it's a list of his favorite pieces, and they're all worth reading.
