Goodbye to another friend. Lockie Young 1959 - 2016

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.”
Isaac Asimov

The Scribbler lost another friend last week. Lockard F. Young passed away on December 27th with his wife Trish and two sons Jason and Ryan at his bedside. Locks was one of our favorite guests, a terrific author and a  man we truly liked.

This week's post is a tribute to Lockie. Below you will find a link to some of the pages  where he was the guest and some of his talented writing.

September 27, 2013 (My favorite) - Not Waxing Poetic.

This story was plagiarized by someone and went viral on the internet with out any credit given to Lockie. Naturally, he was upset but I was impressed at how many people loved and laughed at this story, at his talented writing.

In December, 2016, Lockie's two published stories, Ryan's Legend and The Legend Returns has been published as a paperback called Ryan's Legend. The Early Adventures and is available here

His website   -

Farewell my friend, it has been a true pleasure knowing you.
