I guess it's okay now to report sadly that Kings in Disguise and later Omaha the Cat Dancer writer Jim Vance passed away June 5, after a long and difficult battle with cancer.

Jim and familyJim and Kate Worley were married about 10 years when she passed away in 2004. At that time she and I, with agent Denis Kitchen, were negotiating on a new publication of Omaha the Cat Dancer with 150 new pages to complete the story. Jim took up the writing duties using Kate's copious notes, and we worked hard together, while he also worked on the Kings sequel, On the Ropes. Both were finished in 2013 and Omaha's final volume debuted at the 2013 San Diego Comicon.

Jim's wife Jodi Berg has looked after Jim during this time and and her daughter Kaitlyn and Jim and Kate's children Jake and Sarah are now in her care and doing remarkably considering they all have fought to overcome disabiities.

There is a GoFundMe project being started for Jo and "her" children to save their house. Please go there and read more about the amazing story, and consider a donation.

Omaha fans are waiting for Omaha material old and new to appear here, but that's going to have to wait.
What I'm waiting for, is for Jim Vance and Jo to give me the keys to the omahathecatdancer.com site so that either it can be updated or I can move some material to my site and add links. Due to health reasons, there hasn't been any update on the "Omaha" official site since 2008. So visitors there may not even know that the story was finished, and the full set of Omaha is available from NBM Publications.

When Jim and Jo get better, they'll get back to me, and we'll talk about what to do with the Omaha web presence. As I said before, I do intend to have sketches, pages, and unavailable material up for viewing and eventually, for sale. But there's still a lot of work to do before any of that is possible.

Meantime, the "Cat Dancing with Omaha" yahoo group is still active (although there havent been any posts for a while). Sign up if you're not a member.

In the meantime, the entire Omaha the Cat Dancer Picture Disk is on my site available for listening.

Art Coming Up!

ART is coming up! Soon I'll be uploading lots of stuff to look at. There will be a cover gallery matching the one on the official site, and some surprises.

Hopefully i will have my Omaha pages list finished soon and will be able to offer original pages for sale, as well as other original art.

Okay, The Shakers' Omaha the Cat Dancer LP (picture disk) is up! You can go to OMAHA/SHAKERS MUSIC and click a selection, or play the album sequentially by paging through it, where you can read my notes and the lyrics!

The music seems to be the sensible place to start with this website, since it already exists, but isn't widely available, and it's an attraction and makes for interactive fun.

Once the albums are up, I will be adding some surprise recordings that aren't available ANYWHERE.

Here we are
