Recent reports of Richard Bozulich’s death have, as Mark Twain once said, been greatly exaggerated.
Earlier this week (5 November, 2011), Go Game Guru published a report that Richard Bozulich had died. Mr Bozulich, founder of the Ishi Press and the Kiseido Publishing Company, is the author, translator or publisher of many popular Go books.
I am relieved to learn that these reports were false and, as editor, I’d like to personally apologize to everyone for our part in spreading this misinformation.
Bozulich was indeed hospitalized sources tell the E-Journal, “but he is at home and OK now.”
In an email to Teddy Terpstra, Bozulich reported that “Although I was in the hospital for some surgery and experienced a minor glitch, I did survive. My ‘biographer’ did not wait around for the final prognosis and jumped to the conclusion that I had expired.”
A clearly amused Bozulich signed off “Best regards from beyond the crypt,” with assurances that “I hope to be around for another 15 years or so.”
