Just woke up to this sad news.
Thirty years ago just as I was moving from Amsterdan to Melbourne my friend Scurvy Bastard (who as well as being best man at my wedding would go on to be immortalised as Si the Serial Killer in Preacher) put me in touch with Steve as he was looking for someone to letter his comics. Up until this point his dad had been doing it until he was stopped by a stroke. Unfortunately in those pre internet days logistically it was just impossible to organise.
Rest easy Steve
