Steve Hollier.

Steve Hollier, Editor of AZ Magazine in Baku, died a few days ago of a heart attack. 
Only that morning we exchanged emails discussing the next issue of the magazine, what he wanted for my column, exchanging jokes about life and the blog...and then, that very evening, someone suddenly Skyped me with the sad news. It did not even register in my brain straight away. You always think 'that is just not possible?!' But, sadly, it is. 
My condolences to Steve's partner and his family, and everybody at  AZ Magazine; who are, I am sure, in a state of a complete shock.


  1. I'm sorry for your loss, too.

  2. This is indeed shocking. He came across as a very nice person. I enjoyed working with him on my first column in AZ Magazine...
