I note the passing of Robert Conrad. He had a long and respected acting career. I thought I'd mention one of his legacies he seems most remembered for was his role on the Wild, Wild West. It's no secret that I have a longstanding involvement with the weird western genre as both an author and publisher. So it's not surprising that I've talked to a lot of people about weird westerns--both writers and fans of the genre. What has come up in almost all of those conversations was these folks were fans of the TV show. Without a doubt, Conrad's Jim West character made a huge impression on a lot of people that carries forward to today. If you're too young to remember this TV show, I'm sure it's available for viewing and I highly recommend it. My point is simply that Conrad touched a lot of people with this character, as I'm sure he did with some of his other roles.
