goodbye to a friend

Posted: January 5, 2014 in Dark Silo News

Sad news at Dark Silo. Brent Hauseman, our book and cover designer, passed away last Sunday. Brent was a fine graphics artist, responsible for the cover design of Mary King’s Plague. Brent also did the book design, cover art and cover design for Jason Richter’s Mating Rituals of Migratory Humans (published by our sister company, Pernicious Press). Brent’s expertise was earned on the job – he’d spent nearly a decade designing books and covers for Weston Distance Learning in Fort Collins, Colorado.


In addition to his graphic arts work, Brent was a fine musician. During his active playing years, he played with country and bluegrass notables (including David Grisman). Brent’s combined his love of music and art by designing album art for names like Jerry Garcia and Doc Watson. (Brent designed the cover for Dawgnation – the album posted here.)

Services were held at the First Baptist Church of Loveland, Colorado (where is father was Pastor for years).

Brent was a kind and gentle man (horror genre connection not withstanding). He will be missed.
