JT Cummins died in his sleep at 51. A cool, inventive writer, we had shared a lot of ideas about e-books in the past year and did some promotion together. He was one of the few doing movie scripts in e-books and he was very excited about the possibilities of the new digital era. I had just emailed him a few days ago to ask about his scripts, not realizing he had already moved on.
A screenwriter and fiction writer, he also worked in special effects in a number of movies like The Thing and House. Hopefully he is sitting in that great movie theater in the sky, watching a double bill with the keyboard by his side.
