Noel Williams


Yesterday I received the very sad news that our friend Noel Williams had passed away this August.

Fellow participants of the Challenge know Noel well from his wonderfully creative, loquacious and hilarious submissions to our little event (he was a poet after all).  I always knew, that when a Noel entry was posted, that I'd be entertained by his great wit, impressed by his furious industry and invigorated by his ebullient enthusiasm. 

He will be greatly missed.

Wishing you smooth sailing and open skies, Noel.

  1. It's a sad day. I will always smile when I think of him, his gloriously batty submissions and his full nuclear points bombs. Much of his pubished work is available to buy on line

  2. This is horrible news indeed. Noel's entries were always so fullsome - each one like a snapshot from an RPG game that really brought you into a small world, not just a look at what was painted.

    Thankyou Noel for your wonderful contributions to our small but close community. We are all the better for having had you with us

  8. He will definitely be missed, as will his points bombs and witty posts.
    I remember well his Challenge Island campaign - visiting every location before ascending Snowlord's Peak and then doing it all again in reverse order.

    RIP Noel
