Robert Temple Ayres

You may not know the name Robert Temple Ayres, so if you heard he passed away this week at the age of 98, it may not have affected you.

It did affect Eckhartz Press authors Rick Kaempfer and Brendan Sullivan, however, because Robert Temple Ayres is the artist that created the flaming Bonanza map.

And the book that Rick and Brendan wrote, "The Living Wills", will almost certainly one day be recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the novel with the most references to Bonanza of all time. Rick and Brendan even referenced that burning Bonanza map in the pages of "The Living Wills".

They mourn the passing of Robert Temple Ayres.
