Joel passed away unexpectedly on June 4, 2011. He was the author of more than 20 science-fiction and fantasy novels, as well as a self-defence rights advocate and carry permit trainer. Joel was passionate about and committed himself deeply to causes that he believed in. This passion and commitment led him into an ongoing legal battle with Hennipen County that drained his savings and leaves his family in a precarious position. Joel left behind his wife of 32 years, Felicia Herman; his daughter Judy who was employed as his personal assistant, and his daughter Rachel, a junior in high school.

His friends, in addition to a wake, will be holding a benefit to raise money for the family.

The benefit will be held on on Tuesday June 28, at 7pm at Dreamhaven Books, 2301 East 38th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55406.

Scott Keever, whose band, Orkestar Bez Ime, just won the 2011 McKnight Fellowship Award
Nate Bucklin, musician and songwriter
Steven Brust, local fantasy writer and drummer for Cats Laughing
