Duncan MacDonald RIP

I know this is a bit off topic but I wanted to catch the most spechums and I made an exception. I hope you're OK with that.

Duncan MacDonald, the mad genius of Your Sinclair magazine, later to be famed as Mr Cursor, has passed away. As ever with Dunc, information is scarce.

He is of course also known as the developer of the original Advanced Lawnmower Simulator on the Speccy. He attempted to publish a book years ago, which didn't pan out at the time. It was just recently published in September however, so Dunc finally got his book out before he left us. One last wibble.

If you loved Dunc's comic style, you'll love his book. It's crap, in a funky skillo sort of way.

Dunc was by far my favourite YS writer. I'd always skip to his reviews first as you could be guaranteed of some amazing comical weirdness.
