A Dimming of the Light…

Larry Santoro has passed away.

Followers of the Roundtable will recall his splendid “20 Minutes With…” interview and hosting of Workshop Episode 37 . His many creative endeavors included hosting the “Tales to Terrify” podcast, where I got my first narration gig in the podosphere. I always felt a deep gratitude towards him for opening that door for me and, as I came to appreciate the scope and breadth of his achievements, my respect and admiration for him grew.

When I learned of his passing this morning, all I could think was how the world had become diminished, somehow smaller without him.

Knowing he was out there meant there was another champion of “the stories” at work in the world, an advocate for the spirit of creative exploration that enriches and brightens all our lives. He was a poet, an eloquent weaver of tales, and a gentleman in thought, word, and deed. I did not know him as well as I would have liked and will always regret that missed opportunity.

We all shine a light upon the world. Our contributions and engagements, no matter how small, illuminate the terrain, striking sparks of insight, inspiration, and hope. Larry cast a wide and subtle radiance for many of us and his passing has dimmed the light in the world a little.

Goodbye, Larry. In the final tally, I think you gave more than you got. You inspired wonder and nurtured delight in the hearts and minds of all who knew you. You will be missed .

Workshop Episode 37 (Guest Host: Larry Santoro)

The Roundtable Podcast, Workshop Episode 37, with Larry Santoro and Michael Bergonzi Larry Santoro – author of “Just North of Nowhere” and “Drink for the Thirst to Come” and host of the splendid “Tales to Terrify” podcast – returns to the Big Chair at the Roundtable to help Paul E. Cooley and myself workshop the tale of a hero’s journey through Hell offered up by Michael Bergonzi. Rogue angels, demon spawn, and the world after Revelations sends us all on a wild hunt for radical story lines and subverted reader expectations… and along the way we find some literary gold!

Larry Santoro is an explorer of expression. He has pursued and taught theater, written poetry and plays, produced films, hosted podcasts (like Tales to Terrify, part of the District of Wonders Network), and – of course – stories and novels. While much of his work has been classified as horror, Larry contends that he’s not a horror writer… his stories just turn out that way. Paul E. Cooley joins me as co-host for this episode as we delve into the creative perspectives of this remarkable individual. (and be sure to swing over to check out Larry’s Workshop Episode!)
