RIP: Rick Olney

201212301233.jpg
Con promoter/publisher Rick Olney has passed away at age 58. A controversial figure for many, Olney attempted many things in his life, including starting a readers advocacy organization called ORCA, and throwing many shows which he would abruptly cancel. As a publisher, his major achievement was being accused of owing many artists money.

My own dealings with Olney were cordial, if bizarre, and his account of my attendance at one of his cons was not accurate in the least, but he didn’t rip me off the way he did others. He was a colorful, strange figure—my condolences to his family, his wife, and five children.
