I hope that the notes from his family, and the website, stay up for a while, or at least that they all get archived somewhere.

The GoFundMe campaign is closed, but there are the comments for Gahan's last days, and it's very touching to see the love from his stepchildren (Paul Winters was a stepson).

Goodbye to you, brave soul.

Eddy Deco’s Last Caper (1987) by Gahan Wilson. You may best know Mr. Wilson as a cartoonists and artist. His works have often appeared in the New Yorker and Playboy as well as many other magazines. His work is strange but funny, if you can get the joke.
This is an illustrated detective noir set in something that resembles a New York of the 1940s. The title character is a down-on-his-heels detective of the title and there is a murder to be solved. From this point in the story begins to become bizarre, a world that Mr. Wilson has drawn before. And a nice surprise is the narrative is broken by illustrations that give the reader Eddy’s view of the situation, something novel in a novel.
The book stands up to rereading as it is easy to forget what very unexpected twists there are. But like the mysteries of the golden age, all the clues to the identity of the killer is on display. It is up to you a solve it if you can.
Enjoy to voyage back to another place and time.

I was born the year this book was published: 1965. Man had not yet been to the moon. Sometime in the early or mid 1970s I got this book for Christmas. It was a favorite immediately! I loved science fiction, and I loved humor, and like most any young child, I loved stories where the child-hero holds a position of importance. There is no telling how many times I re-read this light, fun story. Nothing too profound here, just entertainment.
Upon finding a copy in a used bookstore, I was delighted to relive a bit of my childhood. And unlike so many things that one relives from their childhood, this one held up! I enjoyed it yet again.
The citizens of the Moon are split. Some want to go to Earth and discover what is there. Others want to just blow it up because it's ugly and in the way.
Matthew Looney, a moonchild of unspecified age is selected to go on a mission to Earth. They land somewhere in the swamps of Florida near Cape Kennedy. I enjoyed once again seeing Matthew's delight and confusion at his first encounter with Earthlings (flamingos) and his commanding officer's more alarming encounter (alligators). I relished their horror when it begins to rain, and they are convinced the Earth people are attacking them with poisonous water-bullets. At this point, the expedition is so terrified, they take off to return to the moon, leaving Matthew behind (rather E.T. like). It is then up to Matthew Looney, moon boy, to save both the Earth and the Moon from annihilating each other.
